download mail without deleting it from server?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Michael Brown, Nov 15, 2007.

  1. can mail be downloaded and read without deleting it from the mail server
    when using vista mail (or any email program for that matter). amazingly
    david pogue in the "missing manual" for windows doesnt address this basic
    question. nor can i find an answer from google.

    i use http based earthlink mail service (3.95 per month) witch allows me to
    access mail without an email program, like hotmail. when i access my mail
    from internet it doesnt erase it from server. when i access mail with vista
    mail it does erase it from server. i want to decide when to erase it from
    server myself. thanks.

    Yes just check on "leave copy on server" in the accounts setting. in
    Tools>accounts>properties>advanced.

    But remember to tell it to delete the email eventually, or there will
    probably be problems with the server deciding you have too much
    email and refusing to accept more.
