Deleteing IMAP email

  [DELETED] 19:00 11 Oct 2003

Hi, I've just set up my University email to download to my PC through Outlook 2002 using IMAP.

I can't find how to delete messages. When I delete the message gets a line through it and greys out, but stays in the inbox, dragging it to deleted items only makes a copy there. I have deleted the message from the server and still it remains. Is there a setting I've missed?

Also is it possible to delete mail in Outlook and have it deleted from the server too (as with POP3) or do I have to log into my account at Uni and delete from there?

On my second PC (also using Outlook 2002) if I delete from the server, accessing my mail using the web outlook program the Uni provide, I can delete the messages, and they disappear from my computer.

Don't know if that helps.. I'm ntot familiar with IMAP, this is the first time I've used it.

Thanks, Ironman.
