Outlook version
Outlook 2013 32 bit
Email Account
POP3
I am using Outlook 2013 32 bit on Win 10 64 bit. I have several POP3 accounts on three different servers and until recently, Outlook would delete messages from the server when I deleted the message in Outlook.

"Leave a copy of messages on the server is checked" and "Remove from server when deleted from 'Deleted items'" is also checked. Until recently this was working. Because the same issue is happening with the e-mail accounts on three different servers, this is almost assuredly an Outlook issue.

I have tried to uncheck "Leave a copy ..." and restart Outlook then recheck this box. I have tried to repair the .pst file. I found a post which suggested that I enable Outlook logging and look to see if Outlook is sending the delete messages to the server. I have looked at the log file but can't make any sense of it and I can't find anywhere on the web to help in this regard.

What can I do to get the deletion functionality working again?
