email and office outlook

  iqs 19:47 20 Jul 2010


I am using Office Outlook 2007 to retrieve my email from my blueyonder email account.

All works well.

When I purchased my iphone,I synced the email program to office outlook.

All works well.

The question,when I retrieve emails form blueyonder to office outlook on my my PC,I cant retrieve the same email to my iphone.Same applies when I download to the iphone first.

Is there a way to retrieve the email/s to both the PC & iphone ?.

Thank you

if i understand you correctly there should be a setting in the e mail a/c to leave a copy on the server and that way it would be available one way or tother

Hi johnnyrocker.

That's what I thought,the original email is left on the server.

I logged into my blueyonder email account,instead of using office outlook.

I have checked all the settings again,POP & IMAP are both enabled.

Cant seem to figure this one out.

Thanks for the advice

In outlook go to tools/Account Settings/emails click on the email account select more setting go to the advanced tab and put a tick against leave a copy of message on server.

For viewing e-mails on more then 1 PC and on a smartphone you may well be better off setting the e-mails up as IMAP rather than POP click here
This should allow you to easily see all of the e-mails on every device.
Virgin Media has some odd (too me anyway) settings. It will automatically keep e-mails on the server unless you change their settings through webmail. You can set it up to delete as soon as downloaded, mark as read, archive, etc. Check what your settings are.

too many o's should be to

Blueyonder I think is now part of Virgin media and the web page and email accounts have been changed and redesigned. If you log on to your email account via the Virgin media web page and go to settings forwarding POP/IMAP go down to IMAP and click on the learn more or configuration instructions you may find information that could help.
