HTC Incredible :: Gmail App Does Not Delete On Server?
May 3, 2010
I was using HTC's mail app, but I wasn't getting notifications when the phone was in sleep mode so I switched to Gmail. I sent myself a few test emails and deleted or read them on the phone. However, when I open my account on a browser, it shows that they are unread and they are still on the account. What am I doing wrong?
Is this something I have to deal with or is there a setting I'm missing somewhere? Same thing w/ the calendar reminders. I have dismissed them on my phone but they still come up in outlook when I get home.
I use hotmail using the standard mail app. I have it checked to delete mail on the server but when I delete the mail it comes back once it refreshes the inbox. Anyone else encounter this? I searched but couldn't find anything similar.
Is there any way I can delete exchange emails from my Incredible without deleting them from the server? Still would like to be able to access messages from my laptop at a later time like I could with the pos Storm.
I'm using the stock mail app for my hotmail account. I receive the mail just fine and I can delete the messages from the phone no problem. But if I delete the messages from the phone shouldn't they be deleting from the server as well? I would like to see them gone the next time I actually sign into my hotmail account from my laptop but they aren't. I have to physically delete them again from my laptop for them to actually be gone. Can anyone shed some light?
I'm a gmail guy all the way, but receiving second-to-second emails via the gmail app is DRAINING my battery. I re setup my account through htc mail and active sync and its working great my only problem is that It wont let me delete my account from the gmail app.I'd prefer not to have mail flowing in through 2 apps.It's telling me I have to do a factory reset in order to delete it.Is there any way around this?
I put in my gmail and facebook accounts during the initial setup of the phone. Now I have a crapton of Contacts.. many are just people I have emailed once in my life or some random friend of a friend from facebook. I really don't went them cluttering up my contacts list when I go to make a phone call.
I tried to unsync Contacts in both of these apps, but the contacts didn't go away. Is there some way to delete all of these?
I am using Gmail. When I receive an e-mail, I get the same e-mail twice one in the HTC mail box and the other in the Google mail box. I have tried to delete the HTC mail but it will not allow me. If I go to manage applications and choose HTC mail, I can choose forced stop which temporarily stops the double e-mail. It will always revert back however to receving e-mails. Is there a way to permanently stop HTC mail or delete it permanently?
On my old droid eris there was an option to "delete mail on server" in my email settings. the inc doesn't have this option.. it is quite annoying that every time i get on my actual computer i have to then go in to my email and delete those emails that i have already deleted on my phone. anyone else hate this problem?
I connect to my works Exchange server using EAS (I think, it was the default) and it syncs with my mail automagically as stuff comes in. I'd really like to find a way to automatically delete stuff on the Hero as I delete stuff on the exchange server. Is there a way to do this without involving another program?
This subject seems to be have been discussed at length various times in the past and I have to confess, I am confused.So can I keep it simple and take it from the top (again)?I have just installed K-9 v2803 on my HTC Desire (Android 2.6.29)It is connecting via IMAP to a Zimbra server.I haven't fiddles with settings straight install, setup the account, off we go.So far everything seems to work EXCEPT deleting.I'm a simple soul - I expect that when I delete a message on the phone it gets deleted on the server as well right?Wrong.If I delete a message on the server side (Entourage on a Mac talking to the Zimbra server) bang! it gets deleted off the phone exactly as I want.But not the other way. Deleting off the phone removes it out of the inbox in K-9 but the message resolutely stays in the server inbox.Can someone explain why this stupid behavious is happening, and better still, what I can do to fix it?
I did a search and found nothing in the forums that was directly related to this so I started a new thread.I just got my EVO last night.I have two email accounts.A hotmail account, and an Exchange Activesync account.Both are set up and are working fine.Coming from a Blackberry, I am used to deleting the least important emails from the phone as I am on the road, leaving them to be handled later when I am at the computer.My job is email driven so I get 100+ per day from my work account.It is important to me to be able to delete the emails that can wait from the phone, leaving only the most important ones for me to answer while on the road.I called Sprint and after they played with the phone for 20 minutes while on hold, they could not find a way to delete emails from the EVO but leave them on the server for later download by computer.
Once I delete an email I've read on my phone, can I have it set so that it deletes it from the mail server? It's pretty annoying that I'm seeing these emails again when I login to webmail. I don't see an option in email settings.
New to Android - kind of overwhelmed.My big problem now is that if I get an email (gmail) on my phone, and I delete it, it is deleted from my server as well.I need to be able to delete it from my phone if necessary but keep it on my server.
I used to have a BlackBerry. The global setting was to leave email on the POP server. However, when I deleted emai(s) from the BB I was asked if I wanted to also delete it from the POP server. This was handy in that I could selectively delete junk email so that when I got back to my computer I didn't have to bother with them. The Android doesnt seem to have this capability on an email by email basis. You have to set a global setting for the application for all email. Am I missing something or can I actually selectively choose emails to also be deleted from my POP server.
My Configuration: HTC Droid Incredible on Verizon Wireless network. 8GB memory card. Android 2.1 OS. Home computer = iMac running v10.6.3 Snow Leopard. I use Apple Mail, iCal and Address Book on the iMAC. I use a POP3 server for email. I have a Google Gmail account; which I only use as a go-between to sync contacts and calendar between my iMac and Droid I dont really send/receive from Gmail. I link my iMac to Google to sync contacts and calendar events. I link my Google accounts to my Droid to sync my contact and calendar events. I only open up my Apple Mail application on my iMac when Im at the computer, so that I can get incoming email on my Droid. I have accounts on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. I use a Plantronics discovery Bluetooth 925 headset as well as a wired over the head headset with a jack adaptor.
I have a few hotmail accounts and I access them via Live Mail on my work computer and my home computer as well as my hero. If I delete them on my home computer they still show up on my hero (Same with my work computer, delete and stills hows on my hero). What settings do I need to flip so that if I delete the emails on one system they don't show up on any of the other systems. (same with showing read). Is it a matter of IMPA vs POP3? It gets annoying to have to delete 30+ emails every morning on my hero after I've read them on my PC.
I was using K9 and it was working fine for gmail (not for hotmail). All of a sudden it won't delete the emails from gmail that I delete on droid. The box is checked to delete the email when I delete it on droid. Anyone else notice this?
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.
Just got my Epic and am trying to figure out how I can delete message from email that I read off my server from my email. Like on my blackberry it use to ask me when I hit delete somelike like off handheld or off handheld and server.
If we are using gmail does it matter if we use the gmail app or the regular mail app to get our mail? Does the gmail app just sync with the server and not use as much battery life? Is there an advantage to 1 over the other?
Galaxy Note 8.0, Suddenly my gmail would no longer sync. So, I browsed the internet for a couple of days looking for a solution to getting reconnected to gmail. I deleted the gmail account from my tablet, uninstalled all updates from the gmail app under applicaton manager. Tried to setup the account again and still got this message "Cannot safely Connect to server". It seems thousands have had this issue and for some reason no one has been able to provide a correct solution. I'm thinking to go back to APPLE! WTF. Can it be that difficult to fix? I don't want a work around by changing ports, accepting bad certificates, etc...I don't want to ROOT my device, and I don't want to do a factory restore!
I'd like my Android app to receive notification when new messages arrive in my gmail account. I realize that the Android gmail client does not broadcast notification when it receives messages. Instead I want to utilize the gmail server's Cloud to Device Messaging capabilities to do this. I read the article at http://code.google.com/android/c2dm/ - the only "missing piece" for me is to understand how my app sends a registration ID to the gmail server. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
