      1 Email Account Miltiple PC's

      Hiya,

      I have configured multiple PC's with 1 Sky email account, and used the option to leave the messages on the server for x days before deleting them, so that all PC's have the same messages. This has worked in the past for non-Sky accounts.

      However, when the first PC download's the messages, the other PC's don't download them and vice-versa.

      What is the setting that need's to be chanegd in the Webmail config to get this working?

      Thanks

      Use IMAP instead if possible, will just synch the folders on your email account on the webpage onto your PC.

      OK, done that and all is working.

      However, it won't let me delete the old Outlook.pst data file through the Mail control panel applet, and I can't set the IMAP one to be the default delivery location.

      Don't really want to have a Personal Folder entry in Outlook for it not to be used, but be open by default!
