Windows Mail: Delete/Purge works differently in IMAP

    Delete / Purge works differently for me in Windows mail, with IMAP accouts.
    Very strange. When I click 'Delete', the email has a line drawn thru and is
    deleted permanently, after a short wait. Before I had to click 'Purge' to
    actually delete it from the mail server. Another strange thing is I see the
    Purge icon/command when I customoize the buttons, but I don't see it on the
    taskbar above when I close out of customization. It's like it's hidden but

    Any ideas?

  2. Tools > Options > Advanced : "Use Deleted Items folder with IMAP Accounts"


    Tools > Options > Advanced > Maintenance : "Purge deleted items when
    leaving IMAP folders"

    control what happens (and when) for deleted IMAP messages.

    What do you think of the performance of Windows Mail with IMAP accounts?

    Thanks so much Steve! I didn't find that maintenance area.

    I think Windows Mail is ok IMAP-wise, though I am very new to it. I just set
    it up in OE6 2 weeks ago for the first time. My main emai client is Lotus
    Notes and I was using POP3, which was fine for me... don't get that much mail.

    Off topic, on another question i added... Playback in mp11 is distorted.. I
    hear little popping sounds, which weren't there b4 in XP using mp11. I hear
    the pops on all types of music whether ripped or burned.

    Any thoughts??? Would love to hear from anyone about the media player pops.
    Running Vista RC1.

  4. I was asking because I use it for IMAP with several accounts, and it seems
    pretty poor compared to OE6 (and I'm running Vista64 RTM!). It has
    improved as the Vista builds have gone by.
    My only guess would be that I don't think it was an RTM WMP11 in Vista
    RC1, and that you'd need to try Vista RTM as soon as you can.

    Thanks again... I don't know what RTM means. What should I run?

    You mentioned running Vista64. I thought i could install that version on my
    eMachine t6522 w/ an athlon 64bit processor.. but it wouldn't install.. so i
    installed the 32bit version. What am I not understanding? Why wouldn't it
    install the 64bit disk.?

  6. RTM = "released to manufacturing" and is often shorthand when referring to
    Vista final (build 6000). Vista "rtm'd" earlier this month.

    It is possible that you need a BIOS update.

    Thanks for replying Colin.

    Is it possible to get the rtm version?

    BIOS update? My machine isn't very old. It seems to burn them fine... it's
    just making these popping sounds on playback no matter what the media.

    How could I find out if my BIOS needs updating? I hope it will be fixed in
    the final realease to the public Jan 30 '2007. Might there be a download
    from MS?

  8. I'm sorry. I understood you to say that you could not install Vista x64 on
    your emachine. My reference to the BIOS assumed that.

    The folks who can get Vista rtm now are subscribers to TechNet and MSDN,
    selected TechBeta testers, and software assurance and volume license
    customers (Business and Ultimate only). There may be others but if you were
    participating in such a group you would know it by now.

    Rtm will go on sale on January 30 preinstalled on new computers or in retail
    boxes in computer outlets.

  9. RTM is shorthand for "Released To Manufacturing". It refers to the
    completed version of Vista.
    It's possible that although your machine is built around an Athlon 64, the
    rest of the system might not be fully 64-bit capable, though this seems
    unlikely. As Colin has mentioned, you might need a BIOS update. Or it
    might just have been a bad x64 download/burn.

    Is it worth upgrading the BIOS possibly if that's the problem? What would be
    the benefits? Not many programs are writen to take advantage of 64bit
    addressing are there?

    Will that be the standard some day? 64bit.

    Why doesn't Intel make 64bit chips? Or do they.

    Thanks for your post/s.

  11. I think so, as it would allow you to choose whether to run a 32-bit or
    64-bit OS as you saw fit.
    There are some.

    Even 32-bit applications may benefit, as they get a larger 32-bit memory
    space to play in (instead of having to share with the OS). The
    applications do need to have been built to utilise as much memory as
    possible though (which was/is down to the developers).
    I'd say 32-bit as standard is in the past. 64-bit as standard starts now,
    and runs for the next few/some/more years.
    They do, and have done for the last 13-14 months, though not all their
    products are 64-bit capable (Core Solo/Duo are notable for lacking 64-bit).
