Checked mail is building up question

Thu Jun 27, 2019 12:56 am

Not sure if this is the right place for this question but here goes......

I am a new user to Mailwasher Pro. I notice that the number of emails listed is over 7 hundred +.

Do those emails stay in the Mailwasher Pro or do they get deleted? Is leaving them there slowing down Mailwasher Pro?

This comes back to your Outlook.
If your Outlook is set to check the accounts using POP, it will have the option set to leave emails on the mail server after download.

If Outlook is using IMAP, then this means all mails are left on the server, as it's more of an online email system.

Do you happen to know what your Outlook is setup as ?

Also if you used IMAP in MailWasher, that will by default load Unread emails in the Inbox from the last 7 days. Which might be better.

I have several emails that I am having Mailwasher look after. Five (5) of them are pop and one (1) is IMAP.

All the POP emails were set to delete from the server after 14 days. I changed it to delete after 7 days.

I'll see how that effects the number of emails that are visible in Mailwasher.

Thanks for the help.....
