Mozilla Thunderbird

Just downloaded and used THunderbird as a replacement for my Outlook express.

Realised that the software does not make changes to the email inbox when i deleted or shift the emails. I know that Outlook Express also deletes/moves the email from the actual email account when you do any changes in Outlook, but Thunderbird doesn't. Is there some function to enable this? (ie. When i delete an email in Outlook express, the email in my Hotmail account gets deleted also. Thunderbird doesn't do this) Or does GMail not support this feature?

Is there a function to enable it to read Hotmail accounts? Hotmail is a HTTP server, and Thunderbird can only read POP and IMAP servers...

TIA

evenstar, I think that what you mean is to automatically delete the e-mails at the server when you get them on Thunderbird.

I'm sorry if the names don't really match, I have it in spanish, but it would be something like...

Tools > Account Management > Server Configuration > Leave Messages at the Server (Uncheck it).


As for Hotmail.

Erm...that function is disabled. Or do I have to set the function in Gmail to delete messages when they are downloaded?

yes, must set on the gmail end.

i left it on. since gmail has 1GB it's good to keep them online. so even if your pc crashes, your mails are still intact. but i still use thunderbird to download so that i can arrange my mails in folders.

Actually what I wanted is that:
- Emails can be downloaded in Thunderbird (successful)
- When I read an email, the email in my Gmail web account marks it as "Read" also.(Failed)
- When I delete an email / shift it to different folders, my web account does the same settings. (Failed)

I know my Outlook Express 6 can do it with Hotmail...but Thunderbird can't with Gmail...:confused: :confused:
