How do I retain mail on Server - Using OutlookExp

  SLIMMERTIF 07:31 09 Sep 2005

I have been using Webmail, but want to now use Outlook express. I have configured OE and can send and receive mail fine. My prblem is that I would like to leave the mails on the server, so that when I am away, I can still access my read files.

How can this be achieved.

I am a BT Internet customer, and my mail address is [email protected]

click here

Select the newly added or existing e-mail account and click Tools > Accounts > Mail. Then click Properties.

On the Advanced tab, check Leave a Copy of Messages on Server

If you like you can set up Outlook Express to remove messages from the server after so many days by checking Remove Mail From Server After, and selecting the number of days or you can elect to have Outlook Express remove messages from the server when you delete them from the Deleted Items by checking Remove From Server When Deleted From 'Deleted Items'

Click Apply, then click OK
