      Don't hijack threads. Start a new one.

      Short answer to your question is no, you cannot stop users from deleting items. The user owns their mailbox and can do anything they like with it.
      If you need to retain email then you will have to deploy journaling and probably a third party tool to manage the journaled items, so that users cannot remove the items.
