Outlook Express doesn't leave messages on server

  quakergirl 22:50 11 Oct 2009

I'm trying to set up OE to download the messages from my webmail. I want to leave a copy there as well, so other people can also access the messages. I've done this in the past for a different e mail account so I know it works. I tick the box on the Advanced tab of the Properties dialogue that says leave a copy of the messages on the server, but the messages still keep disappearing from the the webmail.

Any suggestions anyone?

If you have more than one account, have you Enabled leave a copy of messages on the server for each account?

You may also need to check the Webmail site's configuration regarding your preferences.

From Tools>Options>Maintenance you can also specify keeping log files for troubleshooting purposes.

If you key in Server, Creating Log Files into OE's Help field, it will explain what to do.

Today it seems to be working fine, so I don't know if it just took a while for the settings to take effect, but thanks for your help anyway.
