    Hi there
    We have 2 iPads and 2 iPhones in house all linked up to the one email account. Is there a way to receive the email on 1 device then delete so. It doesnt download on to one of the other devices? I don't want to be flicking the mail on / off all the time. Thank you.

    Don't know what email you are using, but in the app I use you can set it to delete from the server when you delete it from your phone. If you were to switch of automatic syncing and manually sync your emails, then I would think the email would show up only on the first device to check it.

    I think..........?
