I use Hotmail to pull down emails from my pop server but I cannot find a way to have hotmail delete them on the server once they are downloaded. The result is my email box is full. I cannot find a setting that will delete the downloaded messages from the server. Is there a way?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
There is an option to leave the messages on the mail server or not.
If you are setting up a new account, click Advanced Options in the setup page (figure 1), or if you have already created the account, then click Edit in the account-management page (figure 2). Then in the account Add/Edit page (figure 3), un-check the Leave a copy of my messages on the server option.
