My email setup: Laptop downloads all mail off the server. Devices (WM phone & iPad1) leave mail on the server (unless I delete).
Reason: This allows me to delete unwanted email during the day and download the remaining to my laptop when I get home.
Problem: Once my laptop downloads all the mail, there is nothing left on the server. When I refresh my phone email, the mail syncs with the server and cleans it all off (because there’s nothing left on the server). However, with the iPad, I have to manually delete mail because it doesn’t seem to recognize that the mail has been removed from the server.
Anyone know how to fix this? I’ve read several forum posts claiming that it’s a POP3 issue. I’m thinking is a software issue. Why can my phone sync with mail on server but not the iPad?
P.S. I don't want to use another email account as a workaround.
Thanks in advance.
