Found 28th Oct 2010
Recently got my first iphone. I have set up the email and it seems to be working. My problem is that when i delete an email the phone grabs another old one off my laptop. In the settings i can have 25, 50, 100 emails etc. Personally i would prefer to have none other than the new ones that come in and ones that i decide i want on there. I feel for me this is better for security.
Whatever i do if i delete one it will grab another to maintain my list of 25. Is it possible to do something to stop this.

I'm not sure you can change this other than reduce the number of stored emails - I could be wrong though. It annoying however to delete one email only for it to grab an old one to replace it with!

Set 'mail days to sync' to 1 day or something similar, so it only has the most recent.

email is 1and1
I have set my list to the least which is 25. I cant believe you have to have a list. Also dont like how you have to delete individually no select all type button but thats another grype.

Hi babbabooey (weird i dont have the options at the side of yours to reply)
Is that something i would do on the phone settings cant even say i have seen it say sync anywhere. Maybe i am not looking in the right place.
