I recently switched from Outlook 2007 to the new Outlook 2010 version. In addition to many new interesting features, to my surprise I ran into problems with my server mailbox reaching its size limits, so I started losing incoming emals, obviously a very upsetting situation.
Previously, I had Outlook 2007 set up so that all emails were simply downloaded to my PC any time I started Outlook, and automatically deleted from the server. So I never had this problem.
But now Outlook is actually synchronizing my email folders between the server and my PC. And as I have a nasty habit to keep many emails indefinitely (PC disk space is cheap, so that never before was a problem), the server allocated limits were reached within a few short weeks.
My incoming email account type is IMAP, and outgoing is SMTP.
Would someone know how setup the Outlook 2010 so that I can keep email on my PC, yet regularly empty the server folders? I don't really want any synchronization of emails between the server and my PC. Whenever I open Outlook, I want to simply download all my emails to my PC, and empty the server mailbox automatically.
THis is such an urgent and nasty problem to me, that I am considering going back to the previous Outlook 2007 version if I can not resolve this fast.
