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.

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?

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.
