Windows mail syncronization with other mail server

    I recently configured windows mail and configured it for synconization with
    t-online mailserver. Standard configuration was that the mails on the other
    mailserver will be deleted after 5 days. However, all incoming mails on my
    t-online mailserver have been deleted immediately after they were transfered
    to windows mail. Questions:
    1. who is responsible for that?
    2. How can I get the mails back to my t-online mailserver?

  2. Is there another computer or device (smartphone?) checking that same
    mail account? Other than that, I don't know what might cause that.
    Try unchecking the 'delete after 5 days' setting. Does that make a difference?

    Unless your provider also offers the IMAP protocol, there is no easy way
    to move mail back to the server with a POP account. You'd have to
    forward each email back to yourself.

    Thanks for having answered. I check the same mail account with outlook but on
    the same device. Outlook I configured long time ago as such that all messages
    should remain on the origin server. It never happened that messages would
    have been deleted earlier. I changed the configuration on windows mail into
    keeping stored all messages on the origin server. It works now but that does
    not solve the problem of the earlier deleted messages. As I see it the
    standard configuration simply did not keep what it was promising.

  4. Good to hear that no more messages are being deleted after disabling
    the 'delete after 5 days' setting. I've never used that setting, so I don’t
    know how reliable it is. All development on Windows Mail was stopped
    abruptly in July 2006, so a number of bugs remain. Microsoft recommends
    upgrading to the replacement program, Windows Live Mail. The latest
    version of that program is available here:

    http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials-beta
    It will automatically import all your Windows Mail data.

    Hi, AHA.

    Many of us have been using the "Wave 4" beta version of Windows Live
    Essentials for a month or so. It has its good and bad points, as compared
    to the Wave 3 version that has been in use for about a year.

    Have another look at that website.
    http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials-beta

    Just under the big blue banner there is a line that says, "Get the current
    version of Essentials instead." Click this to get the "non-beta" version.

    Personally, I usually go with the latest version available. Even with a few
    bugs, I'm further up the learning curve - which I'm going to have to climb
    sooner or later. ;^} But, as always, Your Mileage May Vary.

    I know nothing about "t-online mailserver".

    Thanks. The package including Live Mail seems to be a Beta Version. Does it
    mean that it is not yet a tested version?

  6. It's an improved beta version, meaning fewer bugs than the previous beta
    version. However, I like it better than the previous released version, and I
    use it for all my email and newsgroups. You can run Windows Live Mail
    and Windows Mail simultaneously (as I do) for a lengthy trial to compare
    the two.
