How to change settings in Outlook to delete message from server after downloading

Hi, follow the steps below. Don't change any of your settings since they already work, but when you get to step 7 this is where you check whether or not you want to remove the emails from the sever.

Open Outlook 2003 then:
  1. Click Tools ' E-mail Accounts.
  2. Select Add a new e-mail account and click Next.
  3. Select POP3, then click Next.
  4. Enter the following information:
    • User Information
      • Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send an email message.
      • E-mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example,
    • Server Information
      • Incoming mail server (POP3): Type
      • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type
    • Login Information
      • User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "").
      • Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
    • Check the Remember password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
    • Do notcheck the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
  5. Click the More Settings button. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  6. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
    • Check the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
    • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
  7. Select the Advanced tab:
    • Under "Incoming server (POP3)," check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the "Incoming server (POP3)" field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, type 995.
    • In the Outgoing server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under it, check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
    • If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, check the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox. If you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! server once Outlook has downloaded them onto your computer, leave the box unchecked.
    Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
  8. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  9. Click Next and then Finish.
  10. Close and restart your Microsoft Outlook.

Getting outlook to work; won't connect to server

Hi! Thanks for using FixYa to solve your problem. Basically, Outlook needs to know what your outgoing and incoming servers are, and how they are configured, in order to send and receive your e-mail correctly.

The incoming server is the e-mail that you receive from other people. The outgoing server is the e-mail that you send to other people. I would advise the best thing that you could do is to call your Internet Service Provider, or ISP (like Charter or Verizon), and ask them the following questions:

1) What is the address of the incoming e-mail server? (like -
usually this is a POP3 server.

2) What is the address of the outgoing e-mail server? (like -
usually this is an SMTP server.

3) What is the port for the incoming server?

4) What is the port for the outgoing server?

5) Is this an encrypted connection?

6) Does either server require authentication (usually the incoming server)

In addition, please be sure that you use the correct username and password for your e-mail that your ISP provided you. This is likely going to be different than the username and password that you use to login to your ISP's website (it is for Charter).

POP3 and SMTP are "protocols," or languages, so to speak, that your ISP's network uses to "talk to" other servers to send and receive your e-mail. As long as these settings are configured correctly, Outlook should have no problem sending and receiving your e-mail.

These same methods work for other e-mail clients like Mozilla Thunderbird and Incredimail.

When you create a new account in Outlook by the way, Outlook will try and use an encrypted connection. If your ISP does not use encryption, you will wait a good long time and then Outlook will tell you it can't find or configure your e-mail s ervers. If that happens, just tell Outlook to use a non-encrypted connection, and then it should find all your e-mail server's settings from your ISP just fine without further intervention.

I do hope this helps! Take care!

My computer has Vista and Outlook Express. Problem when I am in some motels on wyfi I can get the internet and my email but can not send out emil. If I go to my providers web site and then go to my web...

Are you able to surf the net using the WiFi (when the evdo connection has been closed via comm manager)?

If you're online with WiFi, but can't send email (yet you can receive), I'm guessing that the WiFi's internet connection may be the culprit...
You see, many ISPs have outgoing mail filters in place so that viruses and the like can't send out spam from multiple computers.
For example, my provider is optimum online, and they only allow outgoing mail traffic on port 25 (the standard pop3 outgoing port) if it is going to
All you have to do then, is change your outgoing mail server to optonline, and you're all set (note this doesn't change your email address... all outgoing mail servers are the same, you can use whichever you want and it won't have any effect on your name or anything). Every optonline user in my area knows about this by now.

Problem is, then you can't send email from EVDO because optonline isn't accessible from there.
I chose to only send and receive email from the EVDO connection (you can set this somewhere, although I don't remember where), so even when using Wifi, outlook is using the cellular connection.

Alternatively, you can use an exchange server which won't have this problem (since it doesn't send outgoing mail directly, but rather syncs with a server which then sends your mail). special thanks to: dishe

Mozilla Thunderbird setup

    The Gmail SMTP server requires authentication (use the same settings as for the incoming mail server)
