Why does Outlook Express get full of emails even when I delete them from Mail. They seem to build up in OE. I only have the Mail application open in the dock (the stamp with an eagle on it). I thought by deleting from mail, that would be it, done.

What do you think?

After deleting from mail do you use command K to cmplete it?

Hi
I let them build up a bit, then go to empty deleted messeges, (i've just had a look and it says command K nextr to it) but they're still in OE. It takes ages opening that, as it goes through classic which takes a while to open.

It seems you may wanna stop using OE then? That should be easy enough by removing the e-mail address from it so e-mail no longer goes to it. In other words, all your e-mail is being duplicated into OE?

you mean that I've got 2 e-mail addresses?

No....it means that both OE and Mail are "downloading" your email off your ISP's server.
Go to Mail's Preferences, and look for the option to "Delete retreived messages" and select it. This will delete your email off of the ISP's server, so that next time you open up OE, you won't get duplicate messages.

Is there any reason you need to use both Mac Mail and OE? Seems a bit inconvenient, no?

brilliant, ive (you two!!) have done it. Ive deleted my account from outlook express and left it open in mail. Now my e-mail only goes to Mail (stamp picture) which is what I wanted so I don't need to open OE anymore - and wait for classic to load!
I didn't realise both accounts worked at the same time coz when i set mail up, i only did it in the Mail (stamp) one, not even looking at OE.

Cheers to you both for your help. I feel like Im getting to know my mac now...slowly!!

So very glad it was helpful! If you don't already have a method on daily weekly and monthly crons, (like Mac Janitor) let me know and I'll post it (you may have already seen it somewhere in the firums)

I've seen something about crons, but don't know what they are or what to do with them. It would be great if you could let me know.
Thanks :)
