Connection Logging Enabled

Postby jsyl » Sat Nov 03, 2018 11:07 pm

Using OS 12.0.1. Under "Inbox" I get a listing of ALL emails that I received for past 2 years. Subsection of InBox: "John Telus" I only get a listing of current received emails. I donot recall seeing this before. Is there a way to "Dis-enabled" Connection Logging?

It sounds as though your Telus email account is a POP account, and is thus only showing you new emails (once you've acted on them, they are removed from the server -- because POP accounts download to whichever machines checks the inbox, and I'm betting you have a home computer that receives and stores most of your email from the Telus account.

The solution -- if that is indeed what's going on -- is to have Telus switch the account to IMAP, which is designed to store email on their server and sync what's been done to it across multiple devices. OR never check your Telus email on any device other than the one you want to have store all the emails, i.e. your home computer.

This has nothing at all to do with connection logging, whatever that is.
