  • Hello,

    POP3 downloads mail to the client unless you speficially tell it to leave a copy on the server. I am not sure I understand your post. When you say you moved from POP to Exchange, can you be more specific? if you want to go from POP3 to Exchange:

    1. Get Office for MAC and make sure you install the latest updates.

    2. Export your old mailbox.

    3. Set up Mac Outlook for Exchange settings.

    4. Import you old mailbox and allow time for sync.

  • Hi Miguel Fra ,

     I mean to say I'm not leaving any copy on pop server.

    I created two accounts in mac mail.

    1.) POP

    2.) Exchange

    Now what i did was i moved the mails from pop inbox to exchange inbox within the mac mail.

    and it was showing on exchange inbox on that macbook and so i removed both account. but when i give OWA access to that user, mails are missing.

  • OK, just wait for Exchange to fully sync. Then they will appear in OWA. If the emails are in the local Exchange inbox, the all you need to do is wait till the local Exchange synchs with the server. Make sure the mailbox on server has enough space to accomodate the emails you just moved.
