    Hi, I hope someone can help me with this: I delete me emails and they eventually all return!!
    I contacted Verizon and Motorola to no avail. They both told me to do the same thing on the phone, but it didn't help! It is driving me crazy!!
    Thank you,
    Cheryl

    Search the forum for the word "root." You'll be on information overload. :D

    The only reason I asked is because rooted users trend to experience that problem with gmail.

    There's a thread on setting up gmail to check your pop3 email accounts that I used for my aol if you don't mind all of your emails in one inbox. You can set it up to label them so you know what emails come from what account. Search "gmail you" and you should find it. It's titled something like "gmail, pop3, and you."

    Not a problem! Don't be intimidated. Do some reading in the forum, and you'll understand soon enough. Everyone has to start somewhere!

    I'm sorry I just now got your message to me.

    As Jonny said there are guides on here to set up POP3 mail, which you would be using for comast.net

    There is a handy trick that he I think he was implying, that you can forward the mail to the gmail account and have it labeled as say, comcast, but it will come through the gmail application which has 'instant push'.

    Instant push means that when it hits your gmail box, it also hits your phone's gmail app at the same time. Instead of the app having to poll the server constantly through multiple programs looking for email.

    A lot of times this solution is the best working because it eliminates multiple apps from running and polling email servers.

    To help a little, I dug up the thread you'll want to look at that Jonny suggested:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...66-droid-hints-pop3-gmail-forwarding-you.html

    Just keep asking questions until you get it right, that's the only way to learn and we'll be more than happy to help.

    should be simple

    In all that no one answered your question. In your email settings. Check settings on the phone, you have delete from server as "never". In this mode you can delete from your phone and not lose the message because its still on your server and you can retrieve it with your computer.

    You can get rid of this to make your life easier if you use the phone a lot for email, just be careful because when you hit delete it will be GONE forever.

    So in other words do not check off never.

    Quoting myself for more information.

    The default email app that you are using on the phone that would be accessing your comast.net account can be... frustrating at times. Since it is accessing another companies servers, they sometimes don't play nice together and you can often find problems like you are having where it's not actually deleting your email.

    The default email app(not the gmail app) has a lot to be desired, while the default gmail app could be a bit better, I think it works much better than the email app which would be used for comast, yahoo, hotmail, ,etc.

    So, as stated you can try to forward and it might fix the problem or you could consider using an alternative email app from the market.

    Please tell me where in the default email app that is. I can't seem to get there.

    I know you can do that in K-9 and possibly other email apps, but I can't find it in the default :|

    This sentence is confusing. Comcast.net email you delete and it keeps coming back. Which is the email on your phone? Which is the email on your laptop? When you go check comcast.net email on the web is it still there or not? But it still is on your phone, or still is on your laptop?
