Using Both Methods

If you frequently access your email via an email application and the Webmail service, this tip will likely increase your productivity.

Email applications generally delete messages from the email server when they are downloaded. This helps avoid over-filling the email server. However, if you then access Webmail all of your recent messages will not be available. Many email applications have a setting that allows messages to be kept on the server for a number of days after they're downloaded. By activating this setting you'll be able to see the email messages when you access Webmail.

To activate this setting in Microsoft Outlook, choose Email Accounts from the Tools menu. Edit the relevant account using the Change button. Click the More Settings button and then find 'Leave a copy of messages on server' settings in the Advanced tab.
