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?
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?
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.)
None of the above works for me. I am running Android 4.4.4 on a new Nexus 7 tablet. I have the email set up for a third party server. I have discovered (to my dismay) that when I delete an email from my tablet it deletes it from my server making it impossible to recoup it. When I go to Settings>accounts>imap there is no option to leave messages on server anywhere that I can see. Also if I go to incoming messages as suggested above, there is no option to leave mail on the server. There is the possibility to never sync but I don't know if this will solve the problem or not.
Does anyone have a suggestion about this?
Of course, I always have the option to wait till I get to my computer to delete stuff but this leaves a lot of mail on my tablet.
