Hi All - early days with the Mac so please bear with me...

I'm trying to set up Mac Mail with a Yahoo account using POP.

I want to receive email from Yahoo, but I want to keep the emails on Yahoo until I delete them from Mail, after which I want them deleted from Yahoo.

Now in MS Outlook, I would simply go to the account's advanced Tab and check "leave copy of message on server", and check the sub option "delete from server when deleted from 'Deleted Items Folder'"

i cant find any way of doing this on Mail. Hope you can help.

Thanks in advance

I think this is what you are looking for in the Mail preferences.

You click it and you can't read it? Looks fine here.

Thanks for the replies.

That doesnt really do what I need it to...
I like to keep messages in my Yahoo mail until I delete them from my laptop - at which point I also want to remove them from the Yahoo mail server. Easy to do in outlook.
Preferences in Mail only allows deletion if I 'move' the mail from Inbox (not the same as delete!) or after a certain period of time....

Unless you have Yahoo Plus (a paid version), you cannot have the mail forwarded.
