Removing emails from server

How can I set outlook in Windows 10 to delete emails from server after opening in Outlook on PC?

You would need to enable the account in Outlook using POP3 instead of IMAP.  What version of Outlook are you using?

I tried to change the incoming mail from imap.comcast.net to POP3.comcast.net and it would not accept the change and gave me an error message the the test after the change failed. So i changed it back to imap so that mail would work.  Any idea what I might be doing wrong?  Thanks

 

i am on a Windows 10 computer with Outlook 2016.
