Older versions of Oulook just let me just connect to my email account without
doing anything funny. This one automatically downloads messages to my hard
drive and then deletes them!

I work on multiple computers and can't have messages only on one machine. I
can't find any options to disable this.

HELP!

Thanks for the reply.

I can see the emails in Outlook just fine. The problem is that when outlook
gets the messages, it wipes them out on my email server. So now they are only
on Outlook.

If I log in from a different machine, they are not available on my actual
email account. I am hoping this can be disabled.

You most likey have to reset your View settings to show all messages, not
just Unread, New, etc.

Then you need to set Outlook to keep a copy on the server. Go to your Email
account in outlook, go to More Settings and on the Advanced Tab, check the
box at the bottom which says "Keep a copy on the Server".
