    I just returned from my first business trip with the iPad and it worked out much better than expected. I was disappointed to see however that my emails deleted on the iPad were not deleted from the server. I use cox.net.

    Is there a set up I can use to have the emails deleted from the iPad also delete from the server so they all do not download again when I return from a trip?

    I use Outlook 2007 on my desktop, fyi. Thanks!

    Hm, curious. I can only confirm that my gmail and exchange server mail work perfectly. So it isn't a general problem.

    On your iPad, in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Select Your Mail Account > Scroll Down to "Advanced" and under Deleted Messages, select Remove "After one day" (It's probably currently set to "After one month". That should get your deleted messages off your server so they don't download.

    Three notes:

    1. It's got nothing to do with using Outlook 2007.
    2. Imap isn't an issue or a solution.
    3. If you're using a web interface (this is true of Gmail), it might be set so that deleted messages get downloaded, unless you empty the trash. (I know this isn't your situation).

    Is that because the iPad mail app doesn't do imap? I was under the impression imap was created to address just this sort of problem with pop3.
