removing downloaded messages from server error...

Gentlemen,
I have a pop3 email account which is working fine. The only problem is that when ever I attempt to send & receive my messages through MS Outlook XP it gives me the following error:
Removing downloaded messages from server – unknown error…..
Then after messages are downloaded, this error disappears after clickin on Cancel All.
If my mailbox is empty then this error message –of course- won’t appear.

Please advice…

Detect And Repair.  It is under the Help menu.
Have you called teh ISP to verify that everything is working fine on their end.  When did this start?  Did you install software that could have caused this problem?  If you installed something just before it started happening uninstall it.

OK, we are working here under our own exchange server 2000.
Actually, i had to setup the same email account in Outlook Express in order to test something and also since i'm using Microsoft Outlook, i had to setup to leave a copy of messages in the server to download them in Microsoft Outlook later. But when i finished, i just removed the account from the Outlook Express right away. I guess that when the problem started after this event.

Another Idea:-
Anybody knows how to force removing messgaes from the server side?
Many thanks...

With most ISPs you can log in to your email account through a web interface and read your email from anywhere.  You can also delete the messages from that interface.

Are you saying that if you log in through the web interface and delete the messages the problem returns when new messages come in?  If so, it sounds like you need to talk to the ISP and find out if something is happening on their end.

slink9's is right: if you have a copy of the emails in Outlook, you should use your web interface to delete the copies that are on the server.
