      Downloading SKY e-mail from the server

      Due to a serious computer malfunction I had to install a new HDD etc.

      Everything works perfectly now but recent e-mail disappeared and cannot be recovered. I can get them direct from the server but wonder if I can download them again!

      Outlook 2003: Is there a way to import the e-mails from the server again.

      I know some time ago I could not stop the software from constantly downloading the same e-mails due to a certain amount of ignorance on my part. In case you ask, yes I did back it up but in the confsion the drive it was on was compromised.

      I believe if you use IMAP it'll sync it up with whats on the server without a problem

      Perhaps I seemed cleverer than I am. I do not understand

      It depends on what setting you used. You get 4 choices on what to do with Mail downloaded by PoP. If you have not chosen to 'Delete Sky mails copy', you can get access to it. Section 2 -When messages are accessed with POP. If you have chosen to Delete, its gone I'm afraid.

      They are all there up in the SKY... seems I will have to suck it up UH! Outlook is set up to leave mail up there. No setting used to deleve server copies.

      Thank you by the way

      If you disable POP in "mail settings" and then re-enable it it should download them all again.

      Re: Downloading SKY e-mail from the server

      Done it.... TKS a lot. CReated a complete new IMAP account. The stuff fell out of the sky into outlook. But when you change back top they all disappear again. Create IMAP account again, copy all tyhe folders to e.g. drafts. Cancel IMAP account, re-creat POP3 account and move all the files out of draft into INBOX. Job done. Thanks for the advice.

      Please note, although this has worked for me. The process can empty your e-mails on the server after you have downloaded. So if you **** up like I did it is worth that care to do it righr. Goof and you are stuck with the INBOX full. Therafter things will work OK.
