Help! Want to delete email only from phone and not from server - but comes back
hi! New to the Android world. Formerly iPhone and prior to that, Blackberry. Just purchased the Galaxy Mega 6.3.
I currently have my email hosted through my own domain at GoDaddy. I have my laptop (my main device) set up using Microsoft Outlook 2010 and it receives all my emails. I set up my email accounts (POP3) on the phone fine and am getting emails there too. I have the setting "delete email from server" set to "never" under incoming settings on the phone and on my laptop, I donít have it set to delete from the server when I empty deleted items as well. However, every time I delete an email from the phone, the next time it syncs the email just shows back up again, guessing because itís still on the server.
I donít want to set it to delete from the server when I delete it on the phone since my primary device is my laptop and if I did that, it would never get synced to my laptop since it would be already off the server (my laptop doesnít send/receive when itís in sleep mode). I also donít want to have it delete off the server if I empty the deleted box in Outlook because I like to have my deleted items out there for a while in case I have to refer back to something (so I donít want to empty my deleted box, in other words).
Is there ANY way to ďreallyĒ delete it from the phone and NOT have it come back every time it syncs? With my iPhone, if I deleted it from the inbox, it went into the ďtrashĒ folder and did not keep coming back like an electronic zombie.
Thanks in advance for any help (and I hope I explained myself ok!)
