Roaming and Outlook Email – Leave a copy of messages on the server

While I have accessed email from Outlook on my PC for years, I recently discovered that I could access my email from the web and this left a copy of the message on the server, so when I next used Outlook the message would be shown there as well. However as soon as it is received in Outlook it is no longer visible on the server.

My friend indicated that there was a method of leaving messages on the server. This is here:

  1. Tools >Email Accounts > View or change existing e-mail accounts > Next
  2. Select Account > Change > More Settings … > Advanced
  3. Delivery > Leave a copy of messages on the server
    • Remove from┬áserver after ( and I have currently chosen 10 ) days
    • Remove from server when deleted from ‘Deleted Items’ – I have chosen checked
