Interesting that it took a while for someone to suggest the lowest tech
solution of all! Not that I'm complaining, as I think procmail, fetchmail
et al
are in my very near future. : )

I was doing what you suggested
but, for a reason unbeknownst to me, one machine is not playing nice
in the sandbox: Even though I have the setting you suggest (along with
deleting a message locally, remove it from the server') the mail does stay
the server, but the same mail keeps loading over and over. So, I get
copies of the same mail. No problem with my other computer - it's Netscape
leaves mail on the server until I delete it locally (i.e. empth Trash).

I'll try check my settings on both PCs yet again. Then I'll test them both
downloading, deleting, emptying Trash folder and see if the mail is removed

from the server.

Thanks, Peter.
