leaving a copy on the hotmail server when downloading in outlook

is it possible to download your e-mail in outlook express
from your hotmail account but leave a copy of the server,
so that if you were to go into your hotmail account you
would still have those e-mails in your inbox?

thank you for any help

That's what happens by default.

But If you delete the message in Outlook Express that also deletes it on the server.  And
deleting it on the server deletes it on Outlook Express.

Outlook Express synchronizes with the Hotmail web site so that you always have the same
messages in both places.

If you want to keep a message in Outlook Express but not on the web site, copy the message
to an OE local folder before deleting it from the Hotmail folder.
