Windows Live Mail Problem

I don't know if this a problem or I didn't setup the mail account right. I setup everything like I would have in the past with outlook or windows mail. I do get the emails from comcast, but when I go to comcast all the emails are still there. So I have the same emails in windows live mail as I do at comcast.

I used Live Mail only briefly, but typically that issue is a setting somewhere in the configuration to NOT leave copies of your email at Comcast when you download them to your PC. I'd start pulling down every menu possible in Windows mail looking for that type of control.

In win live mail go to tools / accounts/ then highlight comcost then click on properties and then advanced. uncheck leave on server. Is this what you mean?
