When I delete an email from my desktop computer it does not delete it in my account on my Smartpone, or visas-versa.  What do I need to do to get the settings to acheive this process.

Re: Email

Then either the desktop or the phone is set up using POP3, most likely the desktop.  To get the syncing functionality you want you need to have the account set up on both using IMAP.  Then whenever you do something to an email on one, it will be reflected on the other.  Also, IMAP supports local folders--------POP3 only works on the Inbox folder.  How you proceed depends on what kind of PC you have and what kind of smartphone.  But the settings will be the same for both.  Post back if you need help with this.

 

What kind of phone do you have? (I have an iPhone), and what email client are you using on the desktop-----Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail, Apple Mail etc.?
