Dear all,

I want to know when we configure web based mails like Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, etc. in Outlook than where are the mails actually saved? Are mails saved on Yahoo servers or on our computer??

Recently I configured my Hotmail account in Outlook 2007 through Outlook Connector. When I delete mails from Outlook than they are deleted from web based Hotmail as well.

Thanks and regards ...

It depends on how you have your mail set up. If you click the box 'keep mail on server' then it will not delete it off of the web based mail. If you use imap you should be able to retrieve it even if you delete it.

Google imap.
