Yea, same for me, I have no such thing.
Also I still seem to get dublicated emails even after i disabled the POP.


Edit: Maybe I just have to survive with this until office/outlook 2010 comes out
Shall i enable POP again btw or should it be on disable?

That is because you are using a POP account instead of IMAP Phone Man.

Eneswar try changing yyour mail settings in Gmail as follows: Disable IMAP, enable POP for mail that arrives from now onand select "archive Google mails copy"

Then delete your G Mail account from WLM and do the following:


Add account-e mail account-enter e mail address,password and display name-tick manually configure server settings.

Enter the following settings:

Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL: pop.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL: smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587

Account Name: your full email address (including @gmail.com or @your_domain.com) Email Address: your email address (username@gmail.com or username@your_domain.com) Password: your Gmail password

You should now be able to access the "Leave a copy on the server" settings.

It's a pleasure Eneswar.
