Support » Plugin: Postie » want to use existing gmail address – will Postie delete all existing emails?

    Postie settings (___/wp-admin/admin.php?page=postie-settings) says:

    Note that Postie will read and DELETE all the email in this account

    If I use an already-existing account (not my main gmail account), will Postie delete all email that is already there, or just all new email?

    Will it delete new email sent only by me (the authorized Postie user), or will it delete email sent by anyone to this address? I know it won’t post email sent to this address by someone else, but will it delete the email?

    Further down the settings page, it says:

    Delete email after posting?
    Only set to no for testing purposes

    I’ve got 15 GB free space in the gmail account – I won’t run out of space. Can I set it to No permanently?

    Postie will delete everything in the inbox.

    If you don’t let Postie delete it will post the same emails over and over.
