    How to delete messages from server after download

    Hi,

    I have both MS Outlook and WLM on my Windows 7 computer. After downloading
    my emails with WLM from my ISP which is Cox, if I open up Outlook it
    downloads the same emails. I looked in Tools-Options in WLM, but can't find
    or don't see the option to "delete messages from server after downloading.
    Kindly help with this matter. Thanks in advance.

    If you do not want the messages downloaded to Outlook at all, you can
    remove the account from Outlook. Or as you are asking:

    In WLMail | Tools | Accounts | Mail Account | Properties | Advanced.
    Uncheck: "Leave a copy............".

    Which client do you wish to receive the emails ?
    WLM or Outlook

    Are you using Pop3 or IMAP for Cox ?

    I'm using Pop3 and want the emails delivered to WLM.

    Tools - Accounts - select the appropriate account - Properties - Advanced
    tab - very last section, Delivery, first checkbox, UNcheck "Leave a copy on
    the server".

    See slk759's provided instructions for the account in WLM.

    If the account in Outlook is no longer necessary *and* to prevent it from downloading any emails...remove the account.
    If it is still necessary to use Outlook for the account and retain WLM's ability to download 'all' messages...The account in
    Outlook must be configured to 'Leave Messages on the server'
