"Leave Mail on Server"?

Today seems to be posting day, but this question is on behalf of my wife...

At her office, her work-related mail is handled through Lotus and at my suggestion, she set the Outlook which came with her Office to point towards a personal account. I've always assumed that there was a click under Outlook somewhere that would "Leave Mail on Server", so she could monitor her personal account at work in case I save the long distance to ask where something can found, or something similar and of course, this means that all of her other mail including the come-ons from the catalog stores is immediately downloaded, also. (We're looking for the control, so that she can archive and view these come-ons at home on her own time; After all, there's a reason we don't give Penney's her work address)

This evening at her behest, I searched through my Outlook and can't find such a control anywhere. I know my wicked old Eudora had it and I'm pretty sure Netscape did also, because I lost my Eudora key <U>several</U> years ago and since Netscape would give me both mail and news and I no longer needed to full-capablities of "Agent"; I just stayed with the Netscape and have a fairly-recent memory of the control.

So am I missing something, or is it just not here? We're both using the full-version of Outlook and she's using the XP edition at her work...

Thanks in Advance;
R

PS) In case this is a limitation of the program; Does anyone know if the new version of Netscape Mail still allows for the setting? And/or FreeAgent?

It's kind of tricky to get to in Outlook. I've been using OE, but I believe Outlook is similar. Go to your Accounts, then the properties of the Account you want to change to Leave on Server. Go to the Connection or Server Tab (I don't remember) and you can't miss it. It has an option to leave on server so many days there.

Good luck!

I must be having one of those "extrapolation" problems that I've alluded to in another thread; I, myself use Outlook '97 and ya'll have suggested the first place I looked, but it ain't there. I'll forward this thread to her account, so she can use it to fix her XP; Thanks...

You'd think that this feature was so important in the other programs that when the folks in Redmond reverse-engineered in order to steal them, they would've taken this ability with them, the first time around.

try tools,message rules,mail, step1(all messages) step 2(do not download from server, or delete from server) or something like that. If you don't have the rules wizard installed, go here:http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;q171679

Thanks Tae; That's neat and I guess it also means that as I've gotten older, I've gotten pretty stuck in my ways; I used to regularly pillage through the MS site looking for anything and everything that I might possibly use and maybe it has been a while since I've done that...

I'll have to read some about the Rules Wizard; I can guess what it's functionality would be and I'm sure it would come in handy for something, but for the most part, I personally have developed my own "procedures" over the years and they are working for me; But anything that would make my life easier is certainly worth a look.

For example; I avoid junk mail by regularly changing my email addresses; I do have one address that I may have had an entire decade now that I give only to my close personal friends. It essentially works like the PO Box I keep off of the coast of North Carolina; I've moved a lot, but I've had this one PO Box since '89 and I give it only to the "important" people. The postmaster there, forwards my mail to wherever I am located at the moment, so if we went to college together or if I crash at your pad whenever I'm in London; You write to me at that address and with a few extra days, I'll get the message.

I've kept a permanent email address since the early 90's and I only give it to a few; I don't check that particular box every day and in fact, I probably only check it once a week; But, whenever I start getting too much junk at my current address, I just change it. But of course, I also maintain separate email addresses for specific purposes, so my email could also be considered always in flux and they all don't get filled with junk at the same time.

But thanks; I'll take a look at it; The Rules Wizard certainly sounds interesting...

Peace Out;

PS) And of course, due to my "procedures", if you run a four11 or Bigfoot search on my real name or any variation I use; You'll come up with so many different addresses, it'll almost be like spamming trying to reach me through them all; So, that is one drawback to my makeshift methods because none of the addresses will actually work.

Actually it comes standard in oe 5,unless it's included in the service pack upgrades( i use slipstreaming when installing) that's how I know about it. Just choose the rule"all messages"and"delete/leave from/on server. It works about the same as the rules/spam filter on email such as yahoo. It's interesting that in most of my life I can be stuck in my ways(at least until someone shows me better) but on the puter I am always looking for new things/ways just to try. Course, it almost invariably leads to computer trouble, which, by the way, leads to the weird problem solving knowledge I have.
