Hi I have iphone 4 and like the ease of accessing my email during the day. However, what is odd is that some-but not all- emails are not there on my pc email program when I get home.(I have the iphone set to never delete mail from the server.) This becomes a pain when I am emailed jokey videos etc but cant then watch them on my pc later. My previous iphone, the 3gs, also had the same problem. Any comments would be appreciated. Hoops
With Virgin Media there is a setting, you enter recent: before the email user name in the Incoming Mail Server section of the account properties, which syncs multiple email clients (click here) for the link to the help page.
My iPod touch would download email from the server but wouldn't retain a copy for viewing on my desktop PC using Windows Live Mail until I made the "recent:" adjustment on the iPod.
I've no idea what provider you use but perhaps they have a similar option.
Hi. Thanks for that tip. I am with Virgin Media and have done as you say. It initially redownloaded the last 2 months or so of emails, have deleted them and now waiting to see whether it works. |Cheers
No problem superhoops, have you made the other adjustments to your email clients as well? If so then it should work fine. As I mentioned I've had no problem retaining emails over multiple clients after entering the settings, let's hope you won't either.
Hi, yes I have used the recent: command on my iphone and on Thunderbird on my laptop and it appears to be working. many thanks for your help. (my brother is also grateful as he was having exactly the same problem with his iphone and virgin mail so he now tells me when I mentioned it to him)
