    Question Mac Mail Setup
    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.

    Even with a magnifying glass, I can't read anything on that thumbnail.
    Seriously.

    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.
