    Keep mail on theserver (OE6)

    Hi
    Could someone advise if there is a setting in OE6 that allows me to keep my email on my ISP server after I have downloaded it to OE. I know there is such a setting in Outlook but I can't find it in OE

    Thanks in a advance

    Cheers
    Dax

    You ought to check out Windows Live Mail at Windows Live. It is the successor to OE & Windows Mail. It is functionally the same as OE (with some enhancements) but is a new product with a better internal design. OE is well known for several database quirks (among other things).

    Hi Joe
    Thanks for the suggestion, however I won't follow it up as my question was posted on behalf of my elderly in laws. They have enough trouble learning OE without introducing a new email client.......maybe in 12 months or so.

    Cheers

    Re: Keep mail on theserver (OE6)

    Joe, Is it possible to use both Outlook Express and Windows Live Messenger? I'm so used to OE than I'm reluctant to get rid of it until I become used to using LM.

    Yes. You can pick and choose which 'Live' products you install. Or you mean Live Mail and not Live Messenger?

    Re: Keep mail on theserver (OE6)

    I'm referring to Live Mail, I read your post regarding using it and went to the website to see what it was all about.

    Do you have to be running Vista or will it work with Windows XP Home - SP2?

    Live Mail does not uninstall OE. You can still use both. You just have to be aware of what you may do if you use both products to retrieve mail. If you are going to use both to access the same mailbox then you ought to consider leaving the mail on the server. All the 'Live' products can be installed on XP.

    According to Windows Live - System Requirements, it runs on Microsoft Windows XP SP2 (with Internet Explorer 6 or later) and on Windows Vista.

    Re: Keep mail on theserver (OE6)

    Thank you Hans, I called myself looking for the system requirements. I guess I didn't look hard enough or in the right place.

    Do you use it or have you heard anything negative about using Live Mail?

    Thanks for the information.

    If OE goes down or fails to work, will LM still be available or are they connected and if one fails the other will also?

    Re: Keep mail on theserver (OE6)

    I don't use either Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail myself, I use Outlook instead, since I'm used to that (we use it at work). I haven't heard negative comments about Windows Live Mail, so if you're using Outlook Express now, I'd give Windows Live Mail a spin.

    Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail are both installed locally on your PC, there's no reason they should go "down" except if you have problems with your internet connection. But that would affect any e-mail program.
