Hi All

I have a Microsoft Exchange 2003 server which uses a POP 3 connector to download mail from a hosted storage area. Where on the Exchange server can I configure the connector to delete mail from the storage area after it has been downloaded?

Thanks

Sorry ,, there is no such future available on the Exchange it could be possible to help you  third party tolls but as i dont have idea about it ...
AFAIK, the POP3 client should do this by default but might be configured not to do it. I've seen clients that way. I don't know that POP3 servers generally have much to do with it without client cooperation -- but I'm far from being an expert on the POP3 server side.

And whether or not Exchange has some extended capability for POP3... I'm just not aware of it. If someone knows, it'll be a useful answer to to track.
