[BCAB] Deleting messages from Gmail server query

Hi,

Bear in mind Gmail doesn't honour (or didn't previously) the dele command in the POP3 protocol, so messages don't get deleted.  There was an option to fix this in the Gmail settings, or better to use IMAP in my view.

Andrew.

Hi,

Does she have it set up as Imap or POP3?  If Pop3, then the only way I know
is to set it to delete messages on download.

All the best

Steve

Hi All

Asking on behalf of a friend.  She has the Windows Mail client with NVDA set
up on her laptop, but wants to know how to delete her Gmail messages from
the server.

Any suggestions gratefully received with thanks.



Kind regards,
