I try to set up a new account on ms outlook so i follow,

the instruction in google i used pop3 at first i view the mails in mywebmail.syra.com.au i see there are around 3k mails and lots still coming. so my boss suggested you can use ms outlook so i look in google and follow instruction how to do it so i used pop3 then i look at the message not the same message appeared on ms outlook i could not see the mail that been send in the body of reply message not like in mywebmail.syra.com.au result so, i went back to mywebmail.syra.com.au the mails was gone so i was thinking that may be i could not open the mails at the same time so i removed the account on my ms outlook system hope that i will appeared in mywebmail.syra.com.au but still none. so i set up again a new account on ms out look hoping i was still there but none.

so i wonder where did all that more than 3k mail went since i did not deleted it i just removed the account on my ms outlook system.

It could be that MS Outlook was set to delete the mail on the server after downloading it. I didn't think that this option was set automatically, but I could be wrong. It this is what happened, then your mail has been deleted from your web account.

Teresa is correct.


Your mail was downloaded from the webmail server to Outlook, which removed it from webmail since you did not have leave a copy of messages on the server checked in Outlook.


When you deleted the account in Outlook you also deleted the mail that was in Outlook.


There may be a way you can recover the mail but someone else will have to address that as I know nothing about Outlook.

Yes, I forgot what option I used when I used Outlook for a .mil email. But, it downloaded all the emails to my machine and stopped sending emails to the online account. There's a setting to change that. But, the ones you had may be gone.

ohh... so it was deleted then i thought it was still there thank you for all you comments does all make since so that pop3 settings really delete the mails and get the mail from server itself and no copy too bad hope ms outlook do something about it and hope other bloggers should aware the readers abou the disadvantage of the settings they posted on how to set up ms out look using the pop3 and imap God bless you.
