    Hello, appreciate any help here. Been struggling with this for a couple years and finally posting after being unsuccessful in my searches.

    When i go into my Gmail app throughout the day and clean up my inbox. After doing so, i might sit back at my computer and view Gmail on the browser. But then I always find that all the work i had done on my phone app, did not sync to the browser. I hit refresh on the browser, on the gmail refresh in the browser, go out of inbox and back in. Still the same...no changes.

    The only way to resolve is to be patient and wait 15-30 min and still have to hit sync on the browser sometimes. or I could into the gmail app on my phone and drag the screen down in order to sync or get the round circular arrow to show up on my screen. At that point, i go back to my browser and hit the refresh and all is well.

    Thanks again everyone!

    If you set things up normally, your Gmail account is set for IMAP - the mail is saved in your browser and when you delete it you only delete the copy in your browser. That's meant for multiple devices accessing the same account.

    If you want it so that if you delete it in your phone it's deleted from the server, go to your email account (on the web) and change the account to POP3:

    1. On your computer, open Gmail.
    2. In the top right, click Settings .
    3. Click Settings.
    4. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
    5. In the "POP Download" section, select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
    6. At the bottom of the page, click Save Changes.

    Then delete the account in your phone (just the gmail account, not the Google account) and set it up again. It should pick up that the account is a POP3 account and set things up accordingly. (If not, the settings are:

    Incoming Mail (POP) Server
    Requires SSL: Yes
    Port: 995

    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server
    Requires SSL: Yes
    Requires TLS: Yes (if available)
    Requires Authentication: Yes
    Port for SSL: 465
    Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587)
