delete emails form server when downloaded (Evolution)

  Date: Jan 08    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 376

I use Evolution for email, and when I first setup my account, I
remember setting it up so that the messages would remain on the
server. I now wish to change it so that they are removed from the
server when downloaded. I cannot find that option. Does anyone know
where it is?

At first I thought I knew right where that is but, now after looking for
it for several minutes - I cant find it either.

On Evolution under Edit open Preferences - highlight the account you
want to manipulate and choose Edit - choose Receiving Options and enter
your criteria.

I dont have that option in that location. Actually, I cant find "leave
on server" under any tab.

Edit menu/preferences/Edit mail accounts/Receiving options.

Have you tried the options that comes on the server itself? My ISP has that
option in the "Settings" part of my online inbox.
