Hi everyone! Today I got my information for my Email account given to us by our College. Because I rather use something like Outlook I setup Outlook 2007 (I've never used it before this) to automatically download my messages from this account.

When I'm in my inbox on Web Access all my messages stay there, and I can leave and come back and they remain there. HOWEVER, when I use Outlook, it downloads the messages, and once I receive them they are no longer there when I return on my Web access (I have to use it from certain computers).

Is there any way to stop this from happening? I know that Outlook Archives them, I don't care for this I rather they stay on my Web inbox rather then my Computer.

Edit: It's alright, I've manage to solve this problem on my own! If anyone else is looking for the solution Do the following:

1. Goto Tools >> Account Settings
2. Click on the name that you want to change and press the "Change" button
3. Click More Settings
4. Goto the Advanced Tab
5. Check the box that says "Leave a copy of messages on the server"
6. Click Okay.

And that should fix it. Works great.

For future reference you should check within Control Panel > Mail > Email Accounts - that your Microsoft Exchange account is set to deliver the mail to the mailbox and not a personal folder file.
