    Hi all

    Am just trying to set up mail under Leopard. Under Tiger there was an option to leave a copy of the mail on the server.

    Can't see this option under Leopard - is this option available and if so where do I find it.

    TIA

    Is it a POP or IMAP account you are setting up?

    In Prefs->Accounts->Advanced. there is a check box that says
    "Remove copy from server after retrieving message"

    Why is it that the same feature isn't available for IMAP servers? I've had problems w/ Mail deleting all my emails (every now & then) from MobileMe.

    What about IMAP in Yosemite?

    I have the same question - how can I tell the Mail app to leave a copy of messages on the server in Yosemite? The option noted above for POP does not appear in this same window in Yosemite for IMAP accounts. Little help?
