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.

It does work with your connections unfortunately I am still getting the inbox messages deleted in Windows Live Mail when I delete them in Mailwasher.

I know that there were problems with Outlook.com last week but not sure if that is the cause.

Methinks that you are right Woolwell a poor decision from Microsoft.

A good try JB but unfortunately the wrong one for me.

The problem appears to lie with the interface between Outlook.com, Mailwasher and WLM. Is Mailwasher deleting them from the webmail?

I gave up on these spam filter programs a while back as they caused more problems than they solved as far as I was concerned. I find that Outlook's (the program) junk mail filter works well and so does gmail's spam filter. When I had a Freeserve account I set up message rules at Orange webmail to automatically move certain addresses and some subjects direct to junk.

Yes looks like it is deleting it from the Webmail hence leave a copy on the server would have came in handy.

Now I found this on Outlook.com the other day.

Don't let another program delete messages from Outlook. (If your other program is set to "delete messages from the server," we'll simply move them to a special POP folder. They won't be deleted.) Do what my other program says — if it says to delete messages, then delete them.

I dotted them one at a time and when I delete the e-mail in mailwasher the mail gets moved from the inbox to POP. If I dot the bottom one it goes straight into the deleted items folder without showing.So I have to keep the top one dotted.

The only problem is they have a POP box if you go into Outlook.com but they don't have one in Windows Live mail so the mail gets deleted.

I tried deleting one of my e-mails providers and downloaded it again but still no pop folder on it.

I think you are right it is causing to many problems and I will be better without it.

If I don't find a solution by the weekend that is what I will do.

Thanks for taking an interest.
