how do I delete messages from server??

I have downloaded and started using Windows Live as my email client. How do deleted the messages off the server after I see the messages on windows live?? The reason I ask the question is after I download the files, I can go to my webbase client (not windows live) and I see the same messages downloaded to that site...is there a way I can delete the file from the server, I am pretty sure that xp's OE has that function which is in the delivery system and I could not find it under windows live

The option is not available for IMAP accounts. You have to use POP3 account to do as you want, as described in my distingueshed fellow guru myzr's post above.

Kas, Glad that worked for you. I too converted to Windows Live Mail when I started using Windows Seven. I like it. Hope that you enjoy your time here at SF. Thanks for letting us know your success.

With some eMail providers (like GMail) the setting on the POP screen within the providers web interface over-rides the command in your local mail client...
