Outlook Connector issues w/ live.com emails

I have an live.com email account. I go online and look at the email in that

account. I delete what I do not want to download and then download to

Outlook. When I set up the live.com account it set up Outlook Connector in

my Outlook program. It setup a folder named the same as my email account

with live.com.

Here is the issue. When I download emails from the live.com to my Outlook I

then delete those emails from the live.com account. Why have duplicate

emails since they are now on my computer. I review the emails in Outlook

delete some and keep some. The next day when I go online to check the

live.com for new email my emails from the day before get deleted. The only

thing I can assume is happening is that the live.com emails I kept on my

computer are not on the live.com and live.com thinks it should delete the

emails I have on my computer. The only what I can stop this is to move the

emails to another folder I made in Outlook. Is there a setting I could

change to stop this? My att.net email account in my Outlook does not do

this.

Is your ATT account set up as POP3 and you leave mail on the server?

The Outlook connector is similar to exchange server or IMAP - copies of your

mail is downloaded to your local machine and originals remain online.

Changes are synced with the mailbox on the server. If you don't need the

calendar and contacts syncing you can configure it for pop3. See

the server names to use.

Connect to your Live mailbox with a different type of account.

Your Live account is a two-way account. Your AT&T account, which is POP, is

not. POP protocols are only one-way - from mailbox to client. Live accounts

go both ways. If you want a one-way Live account, use POP to access the

mailbox, not the Outlook Connector.
