    Sorry this is hopefully my last question for a while on my transistion from my pc to my first mac. On my PC I allways got my mail from outlook and when you uploaded mail it was attomatically deleted from the host, so if I uploaded all my mail for exaple from my verizon account in outlook and then I loggen into my account on netmail.verizon.net it would be telling me that I have no e-mails. But with the mail program on my mac this does not happen, I have to mannually delete e-mail off the host and I have more then one e-mail so its kind of a pain in the A to do it because I dont want to go over the max limit my e-mails can hold. I tryed looking in options on Mail but dont see anything, am I missing something or am I going to have to start using a 3rd party e-mail app?

    No need to be sorry:)

    Go to Mail > Preferences
    Then go to your account.
    Go to the "Advanced" tab
    check the box that says "Remove copy from server after retrieving a message."

    That should be it!
