GoPOP

Remote Device Configuration

Prior to configuring your remote access client, make sure you have completed the GoPOP setup steps.

Quick jump to Remote Laptop/DesktopWireless Device/PDA

For purposes of clarity, the term "primary computer" will refer to the computer running Outlook and GoPOP - the computer that you are going to access remotely. The term "remote mail client" refers to the mail program you are running on your remote device (e.g. your laptop or other remote desktop computer, cell phone, PDA, other wireless device) and that you will be using to connect to your primary computer, to access your Outlook mail.

Note: You can now control how GoPOP disposes of deleted messages. Using the Tools --> Options menu, you can configure GoPOP to either delete messages completely, or send them to the Outlook "Deleted Items" folder on your primary computer.
