    Does anyone know how to delete mail from the droid without actually removing it from my exchange account? On my old blackberry I could do this and would not actually delete from my inbox but it would delet from my phone. Is this possible? I have poked and prodded everything i can think of but cant see how to do this.
    Thanks.

    i dont think the stock email app will let you do this with outlook but maybe check out K9 email - free and has a lot more options than the stock one

    Touchdown allows you to do this, along with a lot of other nice things.

    You can choose to delete from the droid only or droid and server, ALL the time, no choice for each email, all or nothing. I ahve not found a way to do this with the stock email or k9. Maybe with the gmail forwarding or touchdown, I haven't tried those yet.

    Is there a section in that thread on Exchange accounts or am I missing something?

    I don't see anything in the stock Email app either but I never use it so I'm not extremely familiar with it.

    +1 for Touchdown.

    K9 enables you to delete from the downloaded email while leaving it on the server. Check the options under Menu>More>Account Settings.
