webmail issues deleting

I have just discovered that emails dont delete from webmail when i delete from my computer.  Are there any settings i can do to make sure they do once i download to my computer as deletign 50 emails at a time is not going to work since i now have 110,000 emails on the server.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Are you using POP or IMAP as your connection protocol? IMAP will automatically sync any changes made on any device, while POP will only delete from the server if you tell it to in the account settings on your computer.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

If you change to IMAP (as mentioned by @Jupiter) you can find the recommended settings at https://www.telstra.com.au/support/category/email/set-up/imap-pop-and-smtp-information-for-manual-em...
