Hi,

My boss's outlook has "save a copy on server" checked and using pop3.

This is maybe 5th time happening, all his email on the server have been redownloading.  I talked to the hosting company (Rackspace), they told me I need to recreate an outlook profile.  

What I did was I remove his account in outlook, and recreate a new one (new pst).  Is this correct? or there is a better way?  thanks

You need to recreate them all if you set new Outlook profile, I would suggest to first export all the data to PST

All the accounts are set to 'Leave Copy on Server'?
How do they not reach the mailbox size limit?

yes, all have "leave a copy"......the mailbox size is 25G.

We have two email hosting companies, one is Rackspace, one is Google, we have never had this problem with Google.
