Overcome

Message 1 of 4

I currently use Outlook Express for my verizon email (better setup)

I have to go into the verizon site to delete all of my emails because deleting them from outlook does not remove them from the verizon server.  I was not aware of this until I had an overwhelming amount of emails in my verizon acct.  (Over 7,000):smileysad:

Anyways, it will only let me delete 50 at a time and is taking forever.  There must be a quicker way.  Does anyone have any ideas on how I can do this quicker? 

Any help would be really great.

In OE, go to Tools -> Accounts.

Select your e-mail account.

Then go to the advanced tab. Remove the check mark for "Leave a copy of messages on server"

And press ok.

In the meantime as you wait for a faster way of deleting the mail on the server.

If you did what I told you to do:

#1 Once all of the messages are downloaded, you will never have that issue again.

#2 That is unless someone using your computer, changes that setting.. 😉


[EDIT]

Found something.

I do not know when it was added.
