Simple, maybe dumb, question. In Outlook and in Outlook Express (two machines) I have, on the Advanced tab, under Delivery, checked Keep messages on server, and also checked to delete after 10 days. Here's the dumb question/assumption. This means I hope that messages will be deleted from the server 10 days after being retrieved, not 10 days from the date the message comes into the server. Right? I wouldn't want messages I'd never seen being wiped off the server just because I hadn't checked my mail for a couple of weeks. Thanks, Ron Hicks, Arlington, Virginia.
