    Help!
    I've switched to Outlook Express from Netscape Communicator for my e-mail purposes...
    Question: In Communicator there's a setting to the effect of "leave messages on Server", that I like to use when I call into my work and get e-mail (I want to be able to re-get that mail when I'm back in the office).
    I've looked high and low in OE and haven't had any luck finding a similar setting. Is there one, or am I out of luck?
    Thanks in advance for any info...

    In Outlook Express, select Accounts from the Tools menu. You should see a list of accounts, including one called Mail(Default). Select this and click Properties. Click the Advanced tab. There is a check box near the bottom that reads "Leave a copy of messages on server".
    If you have more than one email account set up in Outlook Express, you'll have to do this for each account that you want to keep messages on.
