I use OE, and it doesn't delete the messages. Try poking around in the menus, there are lots of options.

Sometimes it happens if the options are set such that old old messeges 
are not downloaded .. hence if a new reply is made to an old thread, you 
won't see the thread, only the reply.

This only follows if either the older posts have expired or their headers have not been downloaded because of the 'download up to xxx headers' (whatever it's called, it's a while since I used OE) option. Otherwise the headers will have already been downloaded. And since over here it seems that posts never expire.... Stewart. -- My e-mail is valid but not my primary mailbox.

But many clients clean up messages that are so and so old, or can hold a maximum number of messages. Lars Ivar Igesund

Actually my client (KNode)has the ability to clear old messages, but keep the thread. Lars Ivar Igesund

True. But that wouldn't follow from an option such that old posts aren't downloaded. Stewart. -- My e-mail is valid but not my primary mailbox. Please keep replies on the 'group where everyone may benefit.
