Keep email on ISP

After installing Microsoft Windows I accidently activated Outlook Express 6.
Now OE automatically downloads my emails from my ISP provider anytime I am on
the internet. Is there any way to return the emails to my ISP? And is there
anyway I can prevent them from being downloaded in the future?

No.

Yes.

To leave future messages on the server: OE Tools > Accounts > [mail account]

To stop OE from receiving at startup: Tools > Options > General > Send and

You've been answered.. But I would check with your ISP as to your storage
space.. Most have modest email quotas - assuming their users will be popping
their email and removing it from the server.

Consider gmail.com if you want to always leave your email on the server..
