  2. Unable to sync emails

    Hello Roger,


    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Please provide more information to assist you better.


    1) Which email client are you referring to? Is it Outlook desktop client?
    2) If you are using Outlook desktop client, then what is the type of the email account? Is it POP3, IMAP, Exchange Active Sync, Microsoft Exchange Server?
    3) Do you receive any synchronization error code/messages?


    I look forward to your reply for further assistance and suggestions.

    Thank you

    Problem with emails from POP accounts being deleted from the server

    Usually on your desktop there is a setting in the email client to leave messages on the server. Check the setting for your email account on your phone for a similar setting. Probably in the advanced setting for the POP account.

    Perhaps the easiest solution, and one I use, is to use IMAP vs POP if your email provider offers that. IMAP allows you to fully sync email between the server and multiple clients. I use my Cox IMAP email with a Windows 8.1 laptop, a Windows 7 desktop,
    an iPad 4 and a Lumia 520. I see the same email folders on all devices.

    If your provider does not offer IMAP you might consider switching to Outlook.com or Gmail which do.

    Which email desktop client do you use and why?

    I just use my browser to read my email, GMAIL.
    I do like Thumderbird and I really should test it out in Win10TP.
    I've also used Eudora in the past and it was very good. IMO.

    I rarely use PC to check emails. I get all my messages on my Windows Phone.

  10. eMail clients are one of those preferential things. Once you get used to a way of doing things, you tend to stick with that.

    I use Windows Essential Mail (WEM/WLM) 2012 (win7, Win8, Win10) and the MS Mail app (Win10 only). I don't see the value add for the MS Mail app, probably because I don't have a Windows based tablet or phone. As it stands now, I use the MS Mail app to separate my normal life from .

    I also use the web clients for eMail addresses that charge for POP3 or when on the road.

    I've tried a number of other clients, but eMail is eMail ... get it from the server; read, store, reply, or delete it.
    I used Outlook 98 when it was free. Outlook is more than an eMail client though - it has powerful collaboration features.

    Isn't postbox a fork of Thunderbird and you have to pay for it?

    Since I have MS Office anyway I use Outlook if I must but most my correspondence is done thru webmail.
    Speaking of Mail, where did my Mail App go, can't seem to find it, don't remember uninstalling it ? Wander if installing MS Office Outlook "ate" it. ?
    Typing "Mail" in search opens Outlook.
