I had set no-delete to one intentionally to leave copies on server
until I delete them. If this is causing the problem, how do I leave
messages on server until I specifically delete them on Yahoo web mail,
Thunderbird or mutt, which doesn't seem to work? There are some old
messages that I want to keep
indefinitely so how can I accomplish it otherwise?
Thanks for the reply,
