Once the messages are already downloaded only the new incoming messages will be removed from the server. What you could have done was delete the "lmos.dat" file. That file is located in your Eudora\spool folder. It stands for "Leave Message On Server" it is the file that tells Eudora what messages have been downloaded to your system. Depending on which version of Eudora you have there may be 2, the other located in the Eudora folder. When this file is deleted all your messages on the server will be re-downloaded to you computer and removed from the server provided the box is checked in the options menu. You can also simply hold down the shift key and click the check mail button in Eudora, this will bring up an option to delete the messages from the server also. You can also just login to the earthlink home page and select webmail and delete from there. Sales Person needed. High commission. Independent nation wide Fast growing industry.
