What exactly is Comcast Smartzone? They don't tell on their website. Web-based email or a pop3-client?

And how does Outlook (MS Outlook, Outlook Express) fit into the story. That's a pop3 email-client (unless you set it to IMAP). And yes, the default setting for such a program is to delete the message from the server. So if Smartzone looks directly into that server, the message can disappear there when Outlook gets it.

The remedy: don't use webbased and pop3 at the same time on the same email account.

But I might be totally wrong here.

Thank you, for your help, but, I think, I figured this one out. I had to set Outlook to leave a copy in Comcast SmartZone. I really don't even know whether SmartZone is POP3 or something else, because whatever you were asking is all French to me. That's why I'm here, in this forum. If it will work, hooray for me, if not, i'll revisit this question and you'll explain what you meant in your response. Thanks 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?
