Mary Ann replied with the Outlook procedure, I use Eudora, and it's under
Tools/Options/Checking Mail

Netscape email has a setting under Preferences I believe, but as Mary Ann
said, each email program is different, somewhere in the settings or options
will be the option to "Leave mail on server", UNcheck this option and it
will delete the mail each time you download it.

Good luck,
