    Dear Sirs,

    After setting up Gmail to go to my POP account, can I then have email
    that is sent to my POP account automatically deleted from my webmail
    version of Gmail? As it is, after I get my email via my regular mail
    reader (Seamonkey) and then delete it, it is still on the Gmail web
    site and I then have to manually delete those emails a second time.
    Any suggestions?

    yes - try looking at the POP options in Googlemail - it's quite
    straightforward. You HAVE looked there, haven't you?

    You may have logged into your gmail account and then wandered from there
    into googlegroups, but you are *not* talking to the gmail people here.
    You are talking to a lot of people who have nothing to do with gmail -
    they don't run gmail and most of them don't even have a gmail account
    like you do. In fact, most of the people you are talking to here not
    only don't run gmail, and don't have gmail, but they also aren't reading
    and posting into googlegroups the way you are.

    Think about where you are and what you are doing. You are posting to a
    worldwide newsgroup full of non-gmail people and non-googlegroups
    Yes. Or archived away from the inbox.
    When you configure your gmail account to be able to pop the mail [to
    Seamonkey], part of that configuration is what you want to do with the
    mail which has been popped - leave it on the gmail server's inbox,
    archive it, or delete it.
