Until today, Outlook 2010 was working great but this afternoon I recieved

a message from my email provider saying that may inbox on the server was

full. I checked and all the mail I had recieved for the last three days was

still on the server. I delete all the mail on the server but after reciever

a dozen or so more emails I decided to check the server again and found that

once again the emails had not been deleted. Is there a setting in Outlook

2010 that mail have changed that needs to be reset to tell it to delete the

files from the server when the download is complete?

Thanks,

Michae;

Yes. On the Backstage (the orange File tab), there is an Account Settings

button. Click it, select your account, then click Change. Click More

Settings and select the Advanced tab and uncheck the box labeled "Leave a copy

of messages on trhe server"

This information is useless if using Hotmail or other outlook connector account.

Another BUG feature of windows.

Well, yes it is useless if you aren't using POP3, because it's a setting for POP3 accounts only. Mail is always left on the server with Hotmail Connector accounts - and if you use POP3 with Hotmail/Outlook.com accounts, Hotmail still wants to keep mail on the server for you. But... the new Hotmail is supposed to have unlimited storage, so it shouldn't be an issue.
