    Default Leave email on server?

    Is it possible to leave email on the server? Everytime I delete an email on the Droid it also deletes it from the server so it is no longer available on my computer. Any way to set it so it only deletes from the handset?

    Can't find it....I think its always a 2-way sync. Why don't you just wait until you are at the computer to delete?

    Another idea is to set up another gmail account and forward your inbox while keeping gmail's copy. then you'd have a backup of all your emails.....in case you need to archive them....

    Ok, thanks for the replys. I guess I will get into the habit of leaving the emails on the phone until I can get to the computer.

    I just checked my Comcast account settings on my Droid and there is an option on "Incoming Server Settings" that allows you to Delete from Server or Never delete from server.

    Click on mail. Go to settings. Click on incoming settings at the bottom you can select leave on server hope this makes sense

    are you asking about gmail or the native email app? the native email app gives you a choice

    acct settings > server settings (on the bottom) > delete email from server > (drop down box) never or when i delete from inbox

    gmail is always sync'd so if you do something on the computer (or on phone) it'll reflect on phone (or computer).

    eta: darn, 2 cross posts!

    Ah, interesting. Thanks all. I have the option to never delete on my Verizon email account but for some reason it is not available on my AOL email account. Oh well, I'm trying to move away from that one anyway.

    I do not have this option. In the native email app, I go to Menu > Account Settings > Incoming Settings, and there is nothing at all about deleting/keeping on the server. Am I looking in the right place?

    Default Exchange Server versus POP3

    I cannot find the feature to save email on an Exchange server, but it is available for POP3 EMail. See Receive Settings/Sync Deleted Items from Server options.

    I am new to Android but it seems the Archive option might provide some sort of solution. By tapping Archive instead of Delete the message is removed from the Inbox and appears to not be deleted from the server until it is deleted from the All Mail folder. (Deleted messages all end up in the Recycle BIn and there seems to be no way to remove them from there.)
