How can I set the mail program within a Mac OS X v. 10.6.8 to automatically delete emails from the mail server after they have been downloaded using a POP3 connection?
A user uses her Mac computer to download emails that are hosted on a remote mail server using POP3.
I have noticed that there is an option that is currently set to delete emails on the server that are older than 1 week. However, even with this option selected, the emails that are older than one week continue to remain on the hosted email server.
What do I need to do to make it so that all emails that are downloaded using POP3 are automatically deleted from the email hosting server as soon as they have been downloaded?
I hope that there is a way of doing this using the mail program within a Mac OS X v. 10.6 computer.
