The problem that I had was that when my wife read and deleted emails that were for her (throught the MSN web interface) they would not delete from my gmail inbox. Also when I read and deleted email from MSN through my gmail inbox they would not show as read and deleted in the MSN web interface. I am really looking for a way to do that. Do you know of any way to do this.

    Thanks
    I haven't tried it but this from Gmail Help may solve pettinej's problem:

    Using POP on multiple clients or mobile devices

    What is 'recent mode?'
    If you're accessing Gmail on multiple clients through POP, Gmail's 'recent mode' makes sure that all messages are made available to each client, rather than only to the first client to access new mail.
    Recent mode fetches the last 30 days of mail, regardless of whether it's been sent to another POP client already.

    Setting up 'recent mode'
    In your POP client settings, replace 'username@gmail.com' in the 'Username' or 'Email' field with 'recent:username@gmail.com'
    Once you enable recent mode, please be sure to configure your POP client to leave messages on the server according to the instructions below:
    • Outlook or Outlook Express: on the Advanced tab, check the box next to 'Leave a copy of messages on the server.'
    • Apple Mail: on the Advanced tab, remove the check next to 'Remove copy from server after retrieving a message.'
    • Thunderbird: on the Server Settings tab, check the box next to 'Leave messages on server.'

    I have gone back to my Blackberry and Verizon has the droid back. I gave up after having my Hotmail account hacked. I just don't need my mailing list to get 2 separate mailings on how to get Viagra. That includes the CEO of the company I work for. It may have a nice internet screen, but it can't hold a candle to a BB if your email is more important to you.

    Good Luck...

    Too bad you have to go. Unfortunately Droid doesn't work for everyone. Enjoy your Blackberry.

    Thanks. The droid would have been more enjoyable. The BB is a business tool / hockey puck that I hate until another system comes along that will forward my emails within less than a minute of being received in my Hotmail account.

    btw.... for you travelers out there. If you go out of the country with your droid and take it with you shut down your EMAIL polling. If you don't and you have it set to poll your emails every 15 minutes you are going to be surprised, BIG time. A coworker left his on and got a $290 data feed bill for less than 24 hours in Santo Domingo.

    I didn't get the bill because I had already gone back to my BB. Another benefit of the BB operating system regarding emails.

    I have VD. Oops! Verizon Droid
    #86
    I have tried to do this, but when I hit Add Account, it tells me Server returned error: "Connection refused" . I have tried repeatedly, starting fresh each time, but still get this. What am I overlooking?
    ..................

    I hate technology. I got it to go through, says it is working. But, though I have set my url domain as default, it shows sent by gmail for domain. That ain't gonna work for me. Plus, gmail isn't picking up mail to my domain, even though it will send. I guess I need to stick with the post office. Just shoot me now.

    Oh g..mail

    Hi-thanks for all your work here. I followed all the instructions yesterday and all my @verizon.net mail was dumping into my gmail app on droid, and I was ecstatic. Today I can't get any incoming, unless it is addressed to my gmail acct. Went back and read the google pages, and it seems it can take 48 hours for the POP to start. Yet I rec'd a couple dozen a day ago... I guess I should wait another day or two before I scream, but I want instant gratification. That, and I have to go out of town next week, and must be able to receive my work related email. On my droid. Any thoughts from way up there?

    Well I've never done it but you can configure the non gmail app to receive your work email. It looks pretty straight forward on how to get it going. There is also the K9 mail app in the market. That is highly recommended by many people.

    640k, Thanks for your hard work on this topic. I was beginning to get frustrated with the email and my droid.
    Couple questions for you,
    If I want to send an email from one of my pop accounts so that the client has that address and not my gmail address I need to use the normal email app and not the gmail app, correct?

    If i change the settings on the pop accounts to check for new mail to never than would that eliminate the same emails showing up in the gmail and regular email, correct?
