    When I delete the email from my X, it is removing them from my home computer. What do I do to change that setting?

    Do you have "delete from server" checked in the app?

    Are you talking about the Gmail app or the native email app?

    If you delete them off the Droid they should delete off the web portal as well.

    How do I "check" that?
    Or should I say, "Uncheck" that?

    I'll have to pay better attention, but I think both.

    I looked and can't find it. Settings, My accounts, opened all emails and don't see that option. Can you be a little more specific?

    If you're using IMAP then anything deleted on your phone will be deleted from your other email clients. Based on what you say in your message, I would guess your phone is set to IMAP while your Apple is set to POP. Though useful, POP is not as efficient as IMAP>

    Check you Webmail POP and IMAP settings by: Web Gmail > Forwarding and POP/IMAP

    Here's gmail FAQ links for both:

    Thank you very much for the needed info & help.

    Weird thing is, I think when I installed Launcher Pro my email settings got messed up or something. I was trying to figure out why I couldn't pull up my gmail account settings to change it from pop to imap.

    After opening my accounts page I noticed that only the google accounts stuff was there and not any email accounts. So I had to add my an email account and change the settings from there. Hopefully everything works after setting up from the info you provided! Thanks
