Wonder if someone can help me with this.
Im trialling Mobileme which is a push email/calendar/contact soln from Mac on the Iphone

I have configured Outlook 2007 to access this account.
I have a Windows XP on laptop.
When I delete email on the PC and Iphone there is a line though it on Outlook but obviuously not actually deleted.

Is there a 'Trash' folder? you may find you have to either move the e-mails here or configure your client so when it deletes a message it moves it here. This is how it works with Gmail IMAP - don't have any experience of how mobile Me does it though sorry.

IMAP structure works in the way that the mail is not deleted until you purge it... it is flagged as deleted. In Outlook, just make sure you purge the deleted mails. I can't remember where but could try right-click on the IMAP server in and see if there is a Purge, or use help to find how to purge.

Thanks for that Chiefie.

It's a pain isn't it! I use IMAP all the time, and I find this very annoying.

I do think this is the benefit of IMAP where an item is marked deleted but not purged. IMAP is designed to store and keep where POP is designed to store and forward.

The purge-command is common across all IMAP clients, but some chose to automatically hide deleted items and may even purge on the exit etc.

Outlook can be set up to purge on exit I think (or was that Outlook Express)

Ok
Ive never used Imap before.
Just upgraded Outlook to 2007.
Mobileme is quite a good service now albeit a bit pricey
