Need Record Of Sent Mails


Recommended Posts

Until now, I've always downloaded my incoming emails off the server (to save space) and kept my inbox and sent mail just on my computer at home. Now I need to make sure I have a backup of those emails. I've changed my Outlook Express settings to leave a copy of incoming emails on the server. The server also has all sent mails that I've sent using webmail (Horde) which I only use when I'm away from home. But what about emails I send from home (not webmail) using Outlook Express? Is there any way (short of a bcc to myself) to have these emails stay on the server that I'm sending them through, i.e. mail.****? If not, any advice to make it easy for me to have a safe backup of my sent mail?

Well HI there! You have been MIA for a while! We missed you!

 

At the risk of making a complete fool out of myself, I will make a possible suggestion.

 

If you changed your account in OE to IMAP instead of POP3 won't that leave all messages on the server that you can access via OE or webmail?

Cookie for Ellen. :angry:

 

Hoorah!! I LOVE COOOKIIIEES! LOL

 

If you keep giving me correct answers and getting cookies, you're going to be very large!!!!! LOL

 

Yeah... I've been incommunicado for a while... just dealing with business. Or trying to. I missed you guys too!

 

Thanks Ellen... problem is, I can't find where or how to change it to IMAP...it's not giving me that choice. I have OE6 if that matters. Can you, or anyone, walk me through it.

HA! Now I can blame my weight on being too smart!

 

Bruce is right, just create a new account and on the 2nd or third screen you will see a drop-down that defaults to POP3, just change that to IMAP.

OK... I did it and totally screwed it up... had to delete account. I'll try again when my brain clears. :angry:
