Dear Experts:

    I am using outlook 2003 to check my email messages. I found that after outlook 2003 download all emails from my online email inbox. Those emaiils are deleted from the online account, which means I cannot check it from other computer using web browser then.
    I tried to find an option in outlook to avoid auto-deleting emails, but I couldn't find it.
    Can you tell me where I can find the option or how I can solve the issue?
     Thank you!

Sui

Configure your account like IMAP, not POP3

Hi Sui,

i think you are using POP3 to retrieve your emails from the email server.
to take care of this, please follow the steps below:
----------
1) in your outlook, go to tools - > 'email accounts', then 'next';
2) select your 'pop/smtp' account from the list, click 'change';
3) go to 'Advanced' tab, check 'leave a copy in the server' then enter a number of days that you want to keep the emails on the server;
4) ok, -> ok -> done.
----------

that way, both your email server and your outlook keep a copy of all your emails.

hope it helps.

Tha advantage of IMAP is that you have the folders in the server, so the sent-mail can be accesed from web browser

i agree with albuitra.
IMAP is better for you to sync your outlook and the email box in your server.
