Windows 7: Outlook 2010 emails getting purged

Outlook 2010 emails getting purged

I have two xp computers on my home network running OL 2003 POP3.
Now I have a new Laptop running OL 2010 IMAP.

So, I can perfectly view and send emails normally on the new Laptop running the OL 2010 IMAP. After several days of building up important emails on the OL 2010 all the emails dissapeared.

Problem occures when I booted up the XP computers running the OL 2003. It seems like OL 2003 down loaded all the residing emails already downloaded on the OL 2010 computer. some how OL 2003 keeps purging all the already read files off from the server and strangly removes them from the OL 2010 copy on the new laptop.

Can this be fixed?

Do you have them purged automatically in Outlook 2003?

Hi. defalg! Welcome to the Seven Forums. :)

Have you set your POP3 accounts in 2003 to not delete messages from the server?

Additionally, since you are running them on a network, are you sharing the PST file among the computers or are you maintaining local copies of the PST file?
