Outlook deletes IMAP messages on IP server

I am using Outlook 2007 as my email application. One of my email accounts is

through an IMAP server. Until recently, messages I deleted locally would show

with a strike-through on the IMAP server until I did a purge through Outlook.

Now, however, whenever I delete locally it also deletes the email on the

remote IMAP server. My IP Administrator says this must be a problem with my

Outlook set up and that no one else is reporting this problem. I cannot find

any place in Outlook where a local deletion can be set or un-set to delete on

the IMAP server except through using a purge. I have not checked the option

in "purge options" to delete on the remote server when I change folders

online.

Can anyone help me change this situation? I would like to have the locally

deleted emails stay on the IMAP server until I do a purge.

Did you enable the feature to automatically purge if you change folders?
