If you have configured your e-mail address as a POP account then you will have the option to decide whether downloaded mail should remain on the server as well as how long it should remain there.

The following steps will assist you in adjusting the setting for leaving mail on the server in Entourage

1) Click on the Entourage menu and choose Account Settings.

2) Double-click on the e-mail account you wish to change.

3) Click on the Options tab.

4. Leave a copy of messages on the server:
  • Remove the tick if you would prefer to have the messages deleted immediately after they have been downloaded.
  • Place a tick in this box if you want to leave a copy of your downloaded mail on the server (recommended if you access this account from another device, such as a mobile phone).
  • If you have enabled this option, then you should also tick the box labelled Delete messages from the server after "x" days and set this to a period of either 1 or 2 days.

5. Click OK to save the changes.
