I have a user whose mailbox in the Exchange Server keeps getting full.

How can I set his account to automatically delete the email from the Exchange Server after it has been downloaded to Outlook?

Create a rule to move all incoming emails to a local PSTs folder and treat that folder as your inbox. Then it is moved off of the server to the hard drive. I do this with copy all of the time because the user wants a copy even if they delete it off of the server.

Make sure the Leave a copy of messages on the server option is not checked. enter image description here

I don't think that someone who uses Outlook in conjunction with Exchange uses POP for connecting to the Exchange. By default the proprietary Exchange/MAPI connection is used. – Robert Aug 24 '12 at 9:11
