    Exclamation How to leave a copy of e-mail on the server if all users use pop3

    Hello,
    Right now my company switch the mail server from postfix to zimbra. All the users using ms-outlook to send and receive the email. The configuration of ms-outlook for receiving mail is pop3 for all terminals. My manager want zimbra to leave all the received mail(via pop3) in the server after open it from ms-outlook and delete it after 1 month.

    I know that ms-outlook has a feature to keep a copy of the received email on the server and delete it after period of time but are there any possible way to configure in the zimbra side? because all the terminal are not in the same place.

    If someone has the idea please help me. I am getting fired soon if I can't do it.

    Really appreciated,
    Vichao S.

    You should tell your boss he needs to understand how email works, POP removes mail from the server when a user downloads email and IMAP leave mail on the server when a user downloads email. The whole point of a mail server is to keep the mail on the server and allow users to download email fof offline use, in that scenario you will need sufficient HD storage for the email and (believe me) there will come a day when a user wants an important email that he's deleted and think you'll have a copy on your server, using pop3 it will be gone.

    Some reading for you:
