Outlook 2003 - How to leave mail on Exchange Server

Using Outlook 2003, is there a way to configure it so that mail is left on the Exchange Server? If I choose POP3, it works fine, but I would like to use the Exchange option.

When you initially set up Outlook to use Exchange it uses the mail store on the EX server not a PST as POP does.

When you open Outlook you are actually opening the mail store for that account.  If you delete email there it gets deleted from the mail store.

Hi steve_webber,

If you are in a domain then the mail stays in Exchange.  If you have setup Personal Folders, then you need to disable them and use the Exchange store instead.

Do I have to do anything specifically to disable them in Personal Folders? The mail is being delivered to Outlook via the Exchange connection.

If you go to Tools>Email Accounts you should have an area that says deliver mail to:  If you run Exchange you should be able to select the Exchange server.

Otherwise, right-click the Outlook icon on your desktop and select Properties.  In there you should be able to create a new profile for the Exchange server.

To move the email from the PST you will Export from the POP account and Import into the Exchange account.

So, as I understand, since I have the Exchange account already set up and working, I don't need to do anything to disable the Personal Folders version. If Exchange keeps the email around, how do I delete it from the server?
