I have an email problem that I can’t seem to solve. I use a couple of different email clients on a couple of different machines to check my POP email. I also get a lot of spam. My main machine, at home, runs Apple’s Mail.app and does a pretty good job at filtering it out. The problem is that when Mail identifies and removes a spam email from my Inbox, I would like it to delete the email from the server immediately, or at least on the following connection to the server. If it did so, then when I checked email remotely using my phone, only good emails would be left, saving hassle and bandwidth (my Treo bandwidth usage is metered).
I have asked about this in Apple’s Discussion Forums and at Ask MetaFilter, but no joy yet. Is there anyone who reads here who might be able to help?
