      Yahoo Inbox empties after sync withn Outlook - HELP!!!

      Hi everyone,

      After the fiasco of the migration from Gmail to Yahoo (54,000 emails needed to be deleted!) I now find that whenever I sync to Outlook, the Yahoo inbox is completely empty once the transfer has taken place -not very helpful to say the least, especially as I need to access past emails on the move and from work.

      Anyone know how to fix this?

      Any help appreciated.

      Cheers... Rob

      You need to check " leave a copy of messages on the server" in Outlooks advanced settings.

      Cheers - I'll check that out. Discovered what is happening is the messages are sent then they're dumped into "trash" in the Yahoo browser.

      Getting the same, you say cheers but how are you happy with that happening? There is no option to leave the message on the server when using an IMAP setup. Why on earth are messages that have been synced to one device being moved to Trash. There is no option to change it in Yahoo either.

      The cheers was for trying to offer a possible fix, not the fact that is happening, and yes IMAP doesn't download the messages (it syncronises them) so there is no need for the option.

      You can do this on Thunderbird too - Tools>Account settings>Server settings> Tick leave messages on server>Then tick Until I delete them.
