Outlook Express

by longshot239 / November 5, 2005 9:31 AM PST

I did some searching but couldn't find either of these questions discussed.

1. Is there any way to prevent OE from immediately deleting mail from the mail server (in my case Hotmail and Comcast?) I noticed that Tools Options Maintenance lets you specify how long b4 deleting News messages.

2. Is there any way to get OE to download to its Sent Mail folder E-Mail's that I composed and sent to someone else while using, for example, the Hotmail web site?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Jonah, if he leaves a copy on the server, won't this affect his Quota and won't he keep getting the same messages everytime he downloads email from the server. Just asking.

As in the earlier post, all you'll get is new mail, but the other mail will still be there in case you need it again.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
