    I have a yahoo email account. I also have Outlook set up to check into my yahoo email. Everytime I check Outlook, it moves all of my yahoo email messages out of yahoo and loads it into Outlook.

    I dont like the fact that my yahoo inbox is cleaned out everytime I open outlook. I may be away from my home desktop and need to access my email messages.

    -Is there a way to single handly move all of the messages back into my Yahoo inbox? (I have about 400 messages)

    -Is there a setting in Outlook I can change to prevent it from moving the messages away from Yahoo?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Besides forwarding all of the messages to yourself, I'm not sure about the first request.

    As far as the second request, In Outlook:
    Click Tools ->
    Email Accounts ->
    View or Change Email Accounts ->
    Select Your Account, Click Change ->
    More Settings Button ->
    Advanced Tab ->
    Check "Leave A Copy of Messages on the Server" ->
    Apply Changes

    There is no easy way, no. You could maybe forward all those emails to yourself, then when Outlook downloads them again you could delete them. But no, there is no easy way.

    Oh, and you should switch to Mozilla Thunderbird. It's self-learning spam filter beats anything Outlook has to offer.
