When I delete an email from another device, why does it not delete on my desk top computer

Email Expert

Re: deleted email

Because you have either the other device or the computer with the account enabled using POP3 instead of IMAP.  If you use IMAP when you delete a message in one place it will be synced and deleted from any other device with the account using IMAP.  POP does not sync anything, nor does it support local folders.
