I recently replaced a computer with Windows 7 to one with Windows 10.  Now when I delete an email on the windows 10 computer it's deleted on Comcast so other home computers can't get it.  Before windows 7 they could.  How to change settings so that deleting email is limited to deleting from the Windows 10 computer only?

Re: email

On the Windows 10 machine, are you using the Mail app that came bundled on it?  If so, it enables the account using IMAP.  In that protocol, when you delete a message it gets deleted everywhere else you have the account enabled because the whole point of IMAP is that everything is synced.  Anything you do on one device is reflected on any others you have the account enabled on that is also set up using IMAP.  Is that what's going on?
