    I have my .mac mail set up on the mail client in osx but also outlook express on the PC. For some reason when I check the .mac mail on outlook express all my old mail disappears from my osx mail client. Is there anyway I can fix this?

    Yes. Go into your Outlook account settings and check "leave message on the server" option for your .mac account.

    The location of this option will depend on what version you have -- but it's there somewhere.

    Thanks for that. I changed it in Outlook and then went back to osx and again my mails disappeared so hopefully it will work from now on?

    in outlook express did you set it up as a POP email or an IMAP email? It should be IMAP.
