Author/Date test 12 mail stays on server

Hi Fret,

Test 12 seems to be not deleting mail on the server after it retrieves messages.
"Leave messages on server" is not checked for either of the 3 mail accounts I have but I keep getting same messages after a receive.

Are there any other account settings that would prohibit a full "receive and delete" from the server?

I'll have a look into it. I've been using delete after 5 days, so maybe there is a problem I havn't noticed yet.

I deleted the mail that kept being retrieved from the net mail interfaces and the repeats stopped. The mail I had downloaded with Scribe was still in the net mail interface as if it hadn't been retrieved but once I deleted it there it stopped coming in.

I then sent a test mail to the account and it (Scribe) retrieved and deleted as it was designed to. Weird... maybe it was a server thing?

I should note that my manual backups of the mail store and setting file were performed with a simple select > copy > paste : resulting in the standard Windows "Copy of ......." files with no extension renaming. I moved those files to a separate folder before the test mail went out. So as another test I moved the files back to the root dir and sent another test email. Everything worked as advertised.

I think we may be able to chalk it up to something I did or didn't do right. This was all right after my settings disappeared (from the other post).
