Tutorial: Set Outlook to Delete Email from Server Automatically: Outlook 2013 and 2010

NEVER USE #IPAGE – I highly recommend to anyone considering using #IPAGE NEVER USE #IPAGE! WORST customer service I’ve ever had the displeasure of dealing with, my site was down multiple times in the same week while every time I contact them they say they will contact me back in 12 hours which ended up being a LIE ALL 3 TIMES THEY SAID THIS, on top of that I’ve used their keyword and social media lift recomneded services through them for 5 months and a few thousand dollars with literally ZERO RESULTS! I urge you to take this warning and choose anyone but #IPAGE!!

If your email account continually reaches or exceeds its quota, you can set Outlook 2013 to delete email on the server after it has downloaded the messages. This tutorial demonstrates how to easily set up this feature. This tutorial was created using Outlook 2013, but the steps are also the same for Outlook 2010. The interface looks a little different in Outlook 2010, but all of the options are in the same place.

    I have outlook 2013 and don't have the delivery options you have in the same tab.

    I have something that says with a check box "Mark Items for deletion but do not move them automatically. Items marked for deletion will be permanently deleted when the items in the mailbox are purged"

    that's under deleted items section and probably has noting to do with the server but I cant say for sure.

    There is a slider in another tab that says Mail to keep offline with a moving slider

    sliding to different notches gives different time periods
    1,3,6,12,24,months and the last position says all

    Do you know what that does?

    The only problem is that in outlook 2010 if you choose the option of delete after so many days it doesn't delete them so it doesn't appear to work…
