    Haw to stop evolution mail from downloading mails that are already in my inbox

    Hi Good peoples!

    I am a new user for ubuntu and my problem is with evolution mail.
    I configured the evolution mail with "Leave Messages On Server" check box checked and I am trying to organise my mails into a folder. But evolution mail is keep downloading massages even though it is in my mail box. What will be the solution to stop evolution mail from downloading mails that are already in my inbox? Pleas help me out.(Server Type is IMAP for sending and POP to receive)

    Elias!

    It sounds like you should be using IMAP rather than POP.

    IMAP leaves your messages on the server. On my system users can use a mail client like Thunderbird or use Webmail, for this I use an IMAP server as it allows them to see the same inbox where ever they are.

    Outgoing mail is SMTP?

    Obviously if you are to use IMAP on your evolution mail client, the server will need to support IMAP.
