    I have the Yahoo e-mail app. working great on my Ipad3.
    However, how do I tell it to delete the duplicate e-mails on my computer when I delete them on my Ipad3. When traveling, I don't want my messages to be stored up on my desktop computer.

    You'll have to access the account online (browser) and look at your settings there, or at the settings on the computer.

    In a browser, enter yahoo.com or www.yahoo.com. Select the mail icon at the top right. Then login and look for your settings. You can use your iPad (Safari or another browser) to do this.

    Don't I have to sync my Ipad3 and desktop computer first?

    The Yahoo Mail app syncs emails automatically. There's nothing you can do.

    There's a setting in the online account or on the PC that's preventing the same on your PC.

    Used to be that Yahoo only offered POP3 accounts for desktop mail clients. Those don't sync. If they still do this your best bet is to use your web browser to visit Yahoo mail when on the desktop.
