Deleted emails

Recently, I re down loaded comcast on my iphone.  Now when I delete messages on phone they are also deleting on my home computer.  For years they remained on computer so i could review again at home.  Why are messages now being deleted on computer ?

Re: Deleted emails

If both the computer and the phone are set up using IMAP for your account, what you are describing is normal.  When you put the Comcast account back on the phone, if you let it auto-configure it, the default is IMAP.  With IMAP everything is synced, so that if you delete a message on one device, it's deleted on all of them with that account on it.
