7. Once setup is complete verify the number of days you want to “Leave messages on server”. Premier Communications recommends setting this to five days, but you can adjust this to meet your needs. This does not affect the emails you save on your computer. It is only the number of days that a copy of the emails are kept on Premier Communications email server.
