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............".

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'
