Does Outlook Connector move email from live.com inbox to outlook inbox or does it just copy it?

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
I have Outlook Connector installed in my Outlook Client.  I added a windows live email account.  When I recieve an email in my live account inbox, and then hit send recieve on my outlook client, the email shows up in my outlook client inbox (for my live account).  When it shows up in my outlook client inbox, has it been moved off my live account or copied?  In other words, if i go to my web based live account and log in will it be in my live inbox?  In a quick test it seems that i can access the same email in both the web based live account inbox and in the outlook client inbox?  But now when i delete the message in my outlook client it goes to the outlook client deleted items folder.  HOWEVER, when i go back to my live account on the web the email is still in my inbox!?  Does stay their forever until i delete it on the web based live account, or is there some period of time it takes before it syncs up with my outlook client.  And if it does sync up then will an email that stays in my inbox on outlook remain in my inbox on live until i delete it?
