Prove it. In Outlook Express, under Options -> Maintenance -> Troubleshooting, check the Mail box. Receive your mail via POP3. Find the POP3 log in your mail store folder. It will show the commands that Outlook Express sent to the server. If there is a DELE, then you know that it is deleting your mail from the server. Alternatively, login to the POP3 server manually using telnet: $ telnet pop3.example.com 110 USER [EMAIL PROTECTED] PASS password LIST RETR 1 QUIT Do this a second time. See if it actually deleted the message. It sounds like you have either a buggy or incorrectly configured client. -- David Phillips <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://david.acz.org/
