Here’s the problem:
I switched my old computer for a new one. The old computer was a laptop and I had Outlook 2007 on it. The new one is a desktop with Outlook 2010.
I moved the archived folders to the new computer, and set up the new Outlook program to talk to the email server. The archived emails are sitting in a “Personal Folders>inbox” section on 2010 Outlook, and new emails show up under a section that is headed with my email, i.e. “email@example.com”>inbox. So far, so good.
Emails have been downloaded and read for the past few weeks on the new computer. I haven’t used Outlook on the old one since the new one was put online.
I went to the server site today to check on spam, and there were all of the past few weeks’ incoming emails sitting in the server inbox. I thought ‘glitch’ and deleted them off the server. Unfortunately, now they’re gone from the Outlook 2010 inbox also.
Why would that happen, and how can I stop it from happening again?
