    Hi everyone

    I tried to use Outlook 2002 to access my hotmail. I used the POP3 settings, got it to work, and hit send/receive. Now none of my emails from my Inbox are in my hotmail account when I use my web login. Why did it do this and how do I reverse it? I tried to find some answers on the Microsoft site but they give pretty generic answers there. The answers I've got here in the past were much better.

    Thanks in advance,

    Greg

    Try going to Tools > Email Accounts > View or change existing accounts > Select your account and click Change > Click More Settings > Advanced tab. From here there should be a check box that allows you to set whether you want your emails to be left on the server.

    Thanks. I need to not rush these things I guess, that was an obviou option.

    So is there anyway to get them back into my hotmail account? I use hotmail basically because I can get it everywhere, and now I've kind of ruined that.

    You could send them back to yourself, although they will lose the original order they were in.
