I'm thinking of switching from pop email (which I've used for years) over to IMAP. Before doing so, I have just a few questions: 1. Is it possible to delete an email locally without deleting it server side? For instance, if I'm checking my email at work and someone sends me a private email, I will want to delete it from the work computer but still have it show up on my home computer when I get home. 2. I'm going to have my IMAP email downloaded to my computers and stored locally. I've been reading however that IMAP folders must be monitored to make sure that the server side disk space isn't exceeded. Will the servers automatically purge old email after a certain time? Or will I have to log on and manually purge old emails to prevent my inbox from filling up? 3. In the Apple Mail app, is there a way to manually refresh the folders, just to make sure that everything is in sync? thanks!
