Help me delete my emails, please

Hello everybody - hope someone can help me. Up until recently I had two ways to check my emails: my computer at home Outlook Express, and when away, I went into BT Yahoo on other computers. Now my daughter has bought me an iPad which is great BUT there is nothing more annoying than getting home to find all the emails I deleted whilst I was away pop straight into Outlook Express! I went into iPad settings to sort it, but it isn't sorted,Furthermore, BTYahoo has jumped on the bandwagon, so on my computer, the emails now come into both, whereas before, if I opened OE and deleted them, they didn't appear in BTYahoo, and vice-versa.  Nothing worse than getting all your emails three times! Any ideas?

Go into settings on your iPad and unselect  "Leave messages on server " !!

 

Not an iPad but... same kinda thing (email receive option in Evolution)

An MSCE in computing is like having a McDonalds Certification in World Cuisine, pointless.

Depending on how you use email, some would consider this a useful feature rather than an annoyance 🙂
