Hopefully someone has run into this before ...

Have a user here who has been using webmail through a local provider. As she is running out of space and has no way to file at the providers server, she decided to go with a mail client and has now set herself up downloading the messages into outlook express. Her question:

How can she get the 'sent' mail that is in her online folders? The client gets the inbox stuff, but she has a whack of messages in the online sent that wants to retrieve.

Thanx ...

Unless the provider has a way to collect these messages, then you won't be able to get them.

If they have an IMAP facility mabe you could link to the Sent Items folder?

POP will only allow for Inbox download.

That's what I thought ... The long way is I might tell her to go into her webmail and forward everything in it to herself ....

Thanx ...
