    eMail Deletions, And POP vs IMAP ?


    Hello,

    In my 80's now, so please bear with me a bit.
    Probably miss many of the nuances now.

    Use Comcast for all eMails, etc.

    Have the Account, I think, set up as a IMAP, which was recommended.

    Problem is, if an eMail comes in, and I see it first on my iPhone, it is apparently automatically
    also deleted from my Mac eMail (called "MAIL") if I delete from my iPhone.

    Also apparently from my windows 10 pc eMails.

    Should i change to a POP Account ?
    Advantages and Disadvantages of doing so ?

    If I leave as the IMAP which it is now, any way of not having the msgs automatically
    deleted from my W10 pc if I delete from my iPhone ? (It's O.K. if deleted on Mac,).

    How do you folks handle this ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    :)

  2. Emails won't delete

    Here are a few suggestions.



    • Have you set up your email as a POP account. If you are not sure, call up your mail provider and ask them.
    • In all probability your email service will be POP. Ask them to change it to IMAP and then get the IMAP settings. Use the IMAP settings to setup email on your phone and we are done!

    email switch from pop to imap

    Imap is recommended if you access your email on several devices. Some ISPs/email providers are moving to imap for various reasons.

    You would need to recreate the account using the same details but using imap rather than pop.

    Many email clients automatically create imap rather than pop these days.

    Which email client are you using?
