Hello,

I'm trying to set up a way of having a pop3 account pulling email witch are selected without having to mark it.

I configurated the "pull only heads" feature (sorry, my outlook is portuguese and I dont know the exact expression).

But when I receive an email, i try to open it and i get a box asking to mark it. After that I have to process the marked emails.

Well, I think that thats a big waste of time.

Is there a way of automaticaly "mark and pull now" and email when I select it (ofcourse, without recurring to IMAP)?

Thanx

Unfortunately it doesn't work like that with POP3's headers only option. You need to mark the mail for download then on the next mail poll, outlook gets it along with any new headers.




IMAP woorks the way you want - headers only, download when you select it in the readingp ane or open it.
