    Email Problems

    Don't know if this has been posted yet. Is there a way to keep a copy of your email on your phone as well as on your server? So far, every time I open my server, it pulls all my emails from my phone. For my business, I really need to have a copy on both the phone and the server.

    It doesn't sound to me like you have your mail set up correctly. Do you have your email forwarded to gmail, do you use gmail alone? I'm not quite following you.

    I have yahoo mail. I will receive an email on my phone as well as on my server. When my phone checks for more mail I will lose the mail that was already there. I can't figure out where it goes or why it is disappearing.

    Ditto. It provides much greater flexibility in terms of how to handle deletion on the phone versus the server. Cannot vouch for how it works with Yahoo!Mail, however. That is always something of a question.

    Sounds like IMAP vs. POP As far as I know, Yahoo! only offers IMAP if you pay (one of a few reasons I finally left). With POP, the message will be downloaded to the client and removed from the server, whereas IMAP will allow flexibility and give you the option to leave it on the server. Gmail's default is IMAP.

    Yes.

    Here's a nice walkthrough for you:

    Motorola Droid - Setting Up Yahoo Mail IMAP | Mobile Technology Deals and Help

    However, there is one typo in those instructions-where it asks for your user name, ONLY enter your username, not username@yahoo.com as the instructions and the pictures illustrate.

    OK, I just set it up the way it says and my mail still disappears when it loads new mail. But if I move my mail to another folder it stays put. I don't understand.
