If you delete any mail in WLM does it get removed from the account server ???

I've found this on several sites:

Important note if you are using POP

By default, Windows Live Mail will not remove messages from the server after you download them. Instead, it will delete messages off the server after you delete them from the “Deleted Items” folder. This will cause your mail spool on our mail server to fill up if you don’t empty the Deleted Items folder from time to time. This is done by right-clicking the Deleted Items folder and selecting “Empty Deleted Items folder”.

If you would rather not be bothered by this, we recommend you set Windows Live Mail to delete messages from the server after downloading. This way you will never have to worry about going over quota. Here’s how to do this:

Source: Windows Live Mail | LMi.net
There is also this, see step #4: Leaving Mail on the Server with Windows Live Mail | Tiger Technologies Support

I couldn't find either settings on my WLM12, but then I don't have it set-up or use it.
WLM sure doesn't make it easy to find information, even within the program; I believe its a Microsoft thing!!

Maybe Robin can confirm these findings??


And John, if you go to that LMi site, I've seen the port settings of 465 for outgoing, and 995 for incoming on a lot of sites. Some are specific especially the incoming if the account has its own server like a University or Business. These are the same settings I have for my gmail, it wouldn't hurt to try them.

One other try is to not configure the settings manually, when you fill out that first window to add an account just click on next and see what happens. WLM just might pick up the ports automatically.

No, i had to uninstall the program and reinstall and had to put each account back separately
And all was there
The only way to delete the account permanently is to log in via the web and go into your account there and there is an option to permanently delete the account, that is the only way to wipe the account, amd microsoft makes it very hard for you to find this option.
When deleting it from wlm you are only deleting it from the program

I deleted my msn account (which is a livemail account also) on one of the 7 computers it is on because i did not want all the spam it brings in on this computer only, it still showed up on all the other 6 computers and i logged in on the browser and all was still there including its contact list, i have a different contact list for it that is how i know it was still there

And i agree with Anak, let microsoft find the hotmail account, i do not see a problem with that as long as you have the correct username and password

windows live mail will delete mail from the server when you delete the email from the deleted folder ONLY.
If you leave it in the Deleted folder it just sits there,
There are no settings in WLM to Leave it on the Server Unless you set it up as a POP Account then you have the option in the Email account to check off Leave on Server and when

If you allow Microsoft to set it up, it is not set up as a pop account and then it is controlled by the web server. If you delete the account on WLM only as I have on my post above, it does NOT delete your account. You have to delete it by logging into http://live.com and delete it that way ONLY.
