Windows 7: Windows Live Mail

Windows Live Mail

I hope i'm posting this in the correct place, if not sorry!...
Have adjusted to WLM quite ok, but i dont use a hotmail or other address so i only use my pop mail server from my ISP for personal and one for my business, the annoying thing being i download my mail to WLM and the problem is that once thats done its not actually removing the mail from my ISP and the first i knew of it was when people told me my mail was being returned due to over quota .... so apart from doing a pain in the butt thing of downloading the mail in WLM and then logging onto my web mail and deleting from there i'm hoping some techno person can tell me why WLM wont do this .... or if it does and i have to do something my end please tell me ....

Many thanks

I was considering using WLM for my ISP's POP3 account and have a question. If you move emails from one folder to another using WLM does it actually move them in the POP3?
Thanks in advance.
