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.

11.      Click Next after you have completed entering this configuration information, and then click Finish.
