Leave a Copy of Messages on Server

 

By default, your emails are removed from Webmail at http://webmail.shaw.ca/ whenever you retrieve them through Windows Mail. You can change this setting so that you can access your emails online through Webmail when you are away from home, otherwise the emails will only be stored locally and accessible only through the computer on which Windows Mail is configured.

 

To change this setting and leave a copy of your emails in Webmail, please perform the following steps:

 

  1. Select Tools
  2. Select Accounts
  3. Select your mail account from the list to highlight your account and then select Properties
  4. Select the Advanced tab
  5. Enter a checkmark next to Leave a copy of messages on the server. This ensures that a copy of the emails in your Inbox is left in Webmail so that they can be accessible online at http://webmail.shaw.ca/ when you are not using this computer.
  6. Select OK
