Can't receive all emails on phone AND laptop

  San Alwigi 15:29 12 Jan 2011

I've just got an HTC Desire phone and I've set up an email account on it.

However, I also have the same email account set up in Outlook 2007 on my laptop. My provider is Virgin Media using the old service. Its a POP3 mailbox set up.

Even though I have ticked the "leave a copy of the message on the server", I only get certain emails on both phone AND laptop.

Most emails only appear on either one or the other. I would like all emails to appear on both.

Can anyone help me please?

Many thanks.

the username, in both setups.

Add "recent:"

so the username changes from;

[email protected]


recent:[email protected]

That's what I had to do for mine, and it works fine now.

Good luck,

You would be better off with imap account which is designed for just this sort of situation rather than using pop. click here
