Try this...

Make sure the Use Deleted Items Folder for IMAP accounts is checked. If not check it and restart Windows Live Mail.

Windows mail or equal to win7?`-capture-12.jpg

Start Windows Live Mail. On the top menu bar click the "down arrow" next to the SYNC button and select EVERYTHING.

Wait for the the Sync operation to finish (Status at bottom right corner of window). Exit and then restart Windows Live Mail.

Send yourself some NEW mail messages. DO NOT test with the legacy email messages transferred from your old "Windows Mail". Now delete the test messages, check the Deleted Items folder and post back the results.

I hope this helps.

Cyrus; win7 doesn't have windows mail, it got windows live mail.

and I still have moved my mails to new system, now problem is IMAP sent folder and deleted items folder which won't sync.


so the problem is that IMAP mails which I delete won't go to IMAP deleted folder... they don't go to storange either.

they just poof to cyber space
I CAN read, and in your first question, you're just referring to Windows Mail, so i thought that you wanted this to work properly on your Windows 7, just could'nt figur out how!

Now you're saying Windows Mail does'nt run on Windows 7, and you're using Live Mail, but it does, i'm using Windows Mail, like in Vista's Windows Mail, that's what you in first place wanted, or not ?

So back off, and make up your mind, i'm trying to help you, but if you mix your intensions, from day to day, it's not my fault my answers missing the point!!!!

Why use imap, does your isp not go POP ?

Live Mail, Hotmail = Not My Mail, i love Windows Mail and i'm sticking with it, as long it does what it has to!

PS! No OS got Windows Live Mail, like any other third party thingy, you have to bind it to the OS

no this doesn't help.

Seems my email provider doesn't understand WLM's delete command or something.. if I manually delete email from web based mail, it syncs to WLM to deleted items folder but somehow WLM can't move items to deleted items folder.. I dont know

1) Who is your email provider for the problem mail service? (just the domain name please, i.e. @charter.net, @comcast.com, etc) If you have more than one then list them all please.

2) Do you have an @live.com email account as well? Assumption is yes. If so, are emails deleted from the @live.com account placed in the "Deleted Items" mailbox?

@kolumbus.fi

your broadband provider's spam-free e-mail

and I wouldn't like to mess up other account to WLM since at least @kolumbus.fi works.. isn't such a huge loss if I can't revive deleted mails.. then I just don't delete mail ^^

Well that did not help ME very much!

And I don't believe you addressed the second question.

Check your email provider's technical details (in your preferred language! ). If it is not an IMAP service then you will have to autoforward that servers mail to your WLM account and then you can use the IMAP features available in WLM.

This works fine for several of my users and gives them the benefits of mobile (Blackberry) access with contact and email synchronization. One user has 3 legacy POP mail server accounts all autoforwarded to her WLM. Her email access is by Blackberry, office desktop (web access) and home desktop (Outlook 2007 with Outlook Connector). She likes it.
