Then a dialog pops out for reminding you the messages will be moved to the Deleted Items folder, click Ignore Conversation button to go on.
Now all messages in the selected conversation have been moved to Deleted Items.
Note: If there are new email messages of this conversation after moving the conversation to Deleted Items, they will be kept received in the Inbox folder.
If you want to recover a conversation back and stop ignoring it, select the conversation in Deleted Items folder, then click Ignore in the Delete group under Home tab, or right-click to show the context menu, and click Ignore.
Now the conversation is recovered to your Inbox folder.
