First, the full link to the article, as the one posted somehow got split:  https://mybroadband.co.za/news/software/361263-microsoft-outlook-bug-deletes-user-emails.html

Second, from the article itself, and this is critically important:

The issue affects Outlook Version 2006 Build 13.0001.20266 and higher, but only for users who have configured the client with a POP account and enabled the “Download Headers Only” option.

IMAP and Exchange accounts appear not to be affected.

To check which version of Outlook you are running in Windows, open the app and navigate to Outlook > Menu > Office Account > About Outlook.  [Keyboard Shortcut Sequence, ALT+F,D,A]
