Windows 7: Windows Live Mail Question

Windows Live Mail Question

When using Windows Live Mail on my Windows 7 Professional computer.....I've noticed that I can pull my emails into the Windows Live Mail account, but all of those same emails remain on my email providers server......they used to be totally removed from the server and pulled directly into Outlook Express when I used my old computer. Is there a SETTING in Windows Live Mail that I need to undo or change so that when I open up Windows Live Mail on my new should bring in all of my emails from my email provider server directly into Windows Live Mail.....meaning there should NOT be any emails left on my email providers server. At least this is how I want it to work. Does anyone know the solution????

I have already called my email provider and their end is okay.....they said it could be a setting in Windows Live Mail that needs to be changed or unchecked.....

To NOT leave messages on the server, you need to open the Advanced settings window for your mail account, then uncheck the "Leave a copy of messages on server" checkbox. Heres a tutorial.
