Hello everyone, Recently I moved on from POP3 and onto IMAP, and as an iMac-iBook user, it has made life a lot easier. I do have one fear, though, and that is of losing my mail. Currently I have Mail.app set up to keep all messages on the server as well as keep local copies of them. However, what if the mail server pushes up daisies? Will Mail talk to the server and assume all the messages were deleted legitimately, and in turn clear out its local copies? Thank you for dealing with the paranoia.
