There does not seem to be a way of doing this. I am using Windows Live mail and can't do it from there and going direct into Outlook.Com there does not seem to be an option there either.

No problem doing it with Virginmedia just can't find a way of doing it with Outlook.com or live.co.uk

Anyone any ideas.I don't have office so it is not that Outlook.

"leave a copy on the server using the new Outlook.com...There does not seem to be a way of doing this...."

When you use any webmail interface, you're simply viewing the messages that are stored on the server so there's no need for the option you're looking for.

"I am using Windows Live mail and can't do it from there"

Go to WLM's Options -> E-Mail Accounts section. Double-click the account you want to configure then click the "Advanced" tab. That's where you can tell WLM not to delete messages from the server after they've been downloaded.

Tried that and there is no Advanced for Outlook.co or Live.co.The only choice that you get is General.Server.and Security,No advanced.

But there is for Virginmedia.

This is the mail service I get with Outlook and live using Windows Live mail.

https://mail.services.live.com/DeltaSync_v2.0.0/sync.aspx

Do you know if that is normal or should it be different.

I only ask as my e-mail inbox messages are deleted every time I close Mailwasher.

They say I need to have Leave a copy on the server ticked but can find no way of doing it.

If the worst comes to the worst I can always remove Mailwasher.

"Secret-Squirrel..Tried that and there is no Advanced for Outlook.co or Live.co."

Apologies Jock1e, you are of course correct - the "Leave messages on server..." option doesn't appear for HTTP mail servers. When WLM downloads an Outlook/Live/Hotmail e-mail it doesn't remove it from the server so that option you're looking for simply doesn't exist.

".........Do you know if that is normal or should it be different."

The server URL you've posted is normal.

For normal Outlook I got this advice from Woolwell on another thread:

It is much easier with imap than pop e-mail as imap does it automatically. However so that emails downloaded on Outlook are still readable on the iPad then go through to the more settings stage and on the advanced tab tick leave a copy of the message on the server. So that emails read on the iPad can still be read in Outlook then Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendars select the email account by clicking on the right arrow next to it, in the window that opens up select Advanced then under incoming settings - Delete from server change to never. This only works for incoming emails. With pop sent emails from the iPad cannot be seen by Outlook which is why imap is better as it syncs all emails between all devices

You would have thought that MS could have seen that the outlook was confusion with outlook.
