Re: IMap versus pop3 e-mail

Hi Marie,
 
With WLM, doesn't it also give you an option to delete the messages after a chosen number of days, or delete from server when delete from the delete folder of the WLM program?  I only ask this because Outlook Express gives you these options.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Gene, try setting up a new email account in WLM and then go to the properties of that account. You will find the option on the advanced tab and the Leave a copy of messages on the server will be checked. Trust me I have done this numerous times.

I find that very difficult to believe and I'm very doubtful.  If that were the default in e-mail programs generally, then all the people who know little about computers and never look at settings would have thousands of messages accumulate on the server over time.  My distinct memory is that the default is not to leave messages on the server.  Most people would have this happen until their server started rejecting mail for their account because most people don't look at such settings..

I seldom disagree with you but with WLM the default is to leave a copy of the email on the server. I recently set up an account on WLM and I am sure that was the default.

I don't know what the default is in Outlook.  I don't use it.  It isn't the default in any other e-mail program I've used.

George,

Yes, I also thought the same as you.  I thought the default was to keep all messages on the pop3 Outlook server unless you go on the actual server, and change it.  I remember some years ago when my inbox crashed, and ATT helped me with that problem, and after the problem was rectified, wow, I never even would have thought any server could hold so many messages, as it was over 12 thousand messages coming through, and it took over four days to complete, and I had my computer running 24 hours a day, wow, I thought I was going to lose my mind!  I was hoping to find a particular email though, and that is the only reason I left it downloading, if not for that, I would have just done a mass delete.  I was using Outlook 2007.

Maybe that has changed but I have found it the opposite in Outlook.

The default is to delete the messages from the server if the program follows what is standard for computer programs.

If the default isn't to delete the messages from the server when I download them to the phone then they'll download again on the laptop because I didn't make any changes like that.

Anyway that likely tells me what I need to know, I had almost 6000 messages so I guess I'll just wait and get rid of them with the computer.  At least I can select them and do a mass delete, which I can't do on the phone.
