[accordion][item title=”E-mail” inner_title=”Delete Your Emails”]Any email you have previously sent will be stored in sent Items. Go to sent items and delete emails you don’t want a person to see. If you started an email but didn’t finish it, it might be in your drafts folder. Go to the draft folder to delete it.

If you reply to any email, the original message will probably be in the body of the message – delete the email if you dont want anyone to see your original message.

When you delete an item in any email program (Outlook Express, Outlook, Thunderbird etc) it does not really delete the item – it moves the item to a folder called Deleted Items. You have to delete the items in Deleted Items to remove them completely

If there’s a risk that someone may know how to access your emails, it’s a good idea to set up a new email account. Use a provider like Hotmail or Yahoo for an account you can access from anywhere, and use a name that is not recognisable as you, for example [email protected] Keep this email secret.

For example, for the Google toolbar all you need to do is click on the Google icon, and choose “Clear Search History”. With AOL, to remove trace of the websites you’ve visited, hold down the “control” key and the “h” key.[/item] [/accordion]
