I am using (Mac) Mail on my computer. My incoming mail and attachments are download to my computer automatically. I go through them and delete the ones I don't want in my computer's inbox - where they are then moved to the trash folder for the mail program on my computer. After a month the trash emails are detected automatically (set up in the preferences for the Mail program).
My question/concern has to do with what happens to the emails on the Cox server. They seem to stay there in the inbox, and require some action on my part to move them to the trash on the Cox email server. Does anything happen to the emails on the Cox server similar to what I have set up on my computer or do I have to take action to move emails not desired to the trash folder and then eventually delete them?
