Subject description: SOLVED - See last post
 

The subject line says it all.

I have been using smm for years and can not live without it. However the last few days it will not delete the messages off the server.

For the record I am using a full install of 3.01 - yes I know but it still does everything I want so cannot see any real reason to "upgrade".

Any ideas/suggestions please.

G'day,
I used to use this type of email-checking package (e.g. Mailwasher under wine) but have found it just as easy to log into my ISP's web-mail option (as though I was travelling and wanted to check emails, but I'm just doing this from home).

I have bookmarked my ISP's web-mail page and have added it to my Seamonkey Bookmarks Toolbar.

I simply click on this toolbar tab to check what emails are on the server - Seamonkey remembers my log-in details so after another click, I quickly see the list of waiting emails.

The package my ISP uses (SquirrelMail) allows select&delete, or if I want, to open (preview) a particular email in a new Tab to see what it says. I can also Forward an email directly from the server without downloading.

David S.

Has your pop3 server account recently been re-configured to "use the "keep on server" pop3 feature"?
"pop3 setup->Help" within SMM mentions this "keep on server" pop3 feature.

davids45,

Thank you for that idea. I checked my ISP and I am able to do the same thing- good to know if I cannot get smm working again.

Sylvander,

The way I use smm is to check, i.e. mark, the emails to delete, click Disconnect and then click Quit which, in the past, was all I needed to do. Confused!

I do exactly the same, but...
Perhaps your pop3 account has been reconfigured to save a copy of each email, even when the original has been deleted.
Not sure how that's done, but I vaguely remember seeing that option offered to me at some time in the past.
Ask your ISP's tech assistance via telephone.
They aught to know.

just guessing : pop3 smells for hotmail/live account .

Windows had recently some month ago changed things because too many Email-clients had "delete messages from server after download" as default settings .

Nah! As soon as you mention Linux that is the end of the conversation.

For what ever reason smm now seems to be working correctly. No, I do not have any idea why or what I may have done.

In my case the emails, when they are downloaded, are no longer on the server anyway.

Interestingly I fired up my 98 install with Mailwasher and the emails were deleted as expected.

I will wait a while before marking the thread as solved however.

I know it is almost 2 months since the last post but 'I think' I know the reason why the emails were not being deleted off the server.

There is 'I think' a bug in smm which if you have clicked "Show Headers" then the emails are not deleted as expected.

If "Show Headers" is unclicked then the emails are deleted.
