How can I permanently delete hotmail emails?
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

The only way to do that is to remove the Recover option from your Hotmail Options

If you disable that option you cannot turn it back on which means if you delete an email by mistake in the future you cannot recover it.

Open Hotmail
Click on Options then More Options
Click on Customizing Hotmail then Advanced Privacy settings then Deleted Messages

Click the Option to "Don't let me recover deleted messages-once they leave the Deleted folder, don't give me a link to get them back"

Click on SAVE
