    Every once in a while, my boss will log in and read his email from the remote desktop.
    He cleans the old files, deleting them.
    The next day, they ALL return, as NEW unread messages.
    We get them from a POP3, and they are routed to the users OST (We do have Exchange, but not used for delivery)
    Thanks!!!

    :)

    When using the remote desktop, are the emails removed from the server?

    Thanks for the response.
    By default, we leave mail on the POP for 2 days.
    Thought about that, but it does not happen consistently enought (In MY mind) for that to be the issue.
    If so, that would happen ALL the time, yes?

    Yes, it should happen all the time, but each machine has different settings which can produce different actions.
