    AndrewO, it was exactly the place I look at before. If I understand correctly, it seems that Outlook can be set to remove mail from the server after specified day there. However, I need to remove mail from the server after certain day after it has been retrieved.

    I don't understand the difference.
    If you click that box, Outlook will ask the server to wait ten days (after you retrieve the message) before deleting it.

    AndrewO,

    I thought this setting would delete the mail from the server on the 10th day after it arrived, no matter it had been retrieved or not. If it were the case you explained, I have misunderstood the definition. Thanks!
