I have my outlook account configured on my iPad. I also have iTunes flagged to sync the account. I get mail instantly on my iPad and outlook as well (or when I open outlook and download them). What I am trying to do now is two things. * When I read a message (or move it out of my inbox) in outlook, i want the mail to be flagged as read on my iPad. I have tried to 'replace information on next sync' option but this does not help. I am forced one by one marking each mail on the iPad as read to clear the new email counter. * In addition to the above, I would like to understand the options for removing older emails from the iPad. I would like to control this again from the sync above but right now it just seems the iPad is randomly keeping emails it received from my pop account and I dont understand what is being considered to be retained (e.g. doesn't seem affected by sync, not sure if it keeps x amount of emails, or keeps emails based on date). Thanks in advance!
