Steps 6 - 10 are optional, however they are recommended. If you check your mail from different computers, you may want to save a copy of your messages on the server, then have Outlook remove them after a specified amount of time. If you skip these steps, your messages will be downloaded to your computer and permanently removed from the server. This means that emails you have downloaded to your computer WILL NOT be accessible from any other computer.

  1. Click on More Settings...
  2. Click on the Advanced tab at the top of the window.
  3. Put a check next to "Leave a copy of messages on the server". You can specify to leave a copy for a certain amount of days and/or have them deleted after you delete them from Outlook.
  4. NSU's mail servers also allow for secure connections. To allow secure connections please check "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)" for both Incoming and Outgoing servers (If you are using an ISP other than NSU, please confirm with them if they offer secure connections).
