I should probably register on a Linux forum for this but thought I'd get equally as good an answer here as I would on a dedicated Linux forum. I install openSUSE on one of the spare computers in work to test it out before i install it on my own laptop. I tried connecting Kmail to MS exchange and did so successfully using POP 3 but never checked the box saying leave messages on the server and it removed the emails from the server. Now i have nothing in my Outlook Inbox on my XP machine. Any suggestion as to how i can restore the emails from Kmail to the server. Thanks Before somebody suggests contacting the IT department. I am the IT department.
