    I am trying to sync my DX default email (currently set up as POP3) with my (3rd party) email server, mainly because I would like to have the messages in my inbox deleted once they are off the email server. I read on the Forum that IMAP can do this, but POP3 cannot.
    Could someone please confirm this, or give me some related tips?
    Thanks in advance --

    Yes imap will sync and pop will not.

    If you search the droid x forum you will find more useful tips. GL!

    I re-set up the native email client with IMAP and it works the way I want it.
