HTC Phone HELP !!!
#1
I picked up a new phone last night, an HTC One & what I need it to do is mimic my Outlook email. What its actually does is grab the incoming mail & downloads it onto the phone & then my PC doesn't get it & vice versa, if my phone is turned off the email down loads to my PC then the phone doesn't get it.

The phone contract is with Vodafone
My email is a Virginmedia blueyonder account

Help would be very much appreciated  ;D

Which Outlook are you using, Outlook or Outlook Express?

In the account settings there is a 'Leave messages on server' check box. This will allow other devices to sync the mailbox as well. If you let me know which version I can give you instructions.

I suspect there will be a similar option on your HTC, but as an iPhone user, I cant do much more than Google it!

Just the standard Mail App you get with the phone

Microsoft Outlook 2007.

Blueyonder mail is Google web based so luckily when I log onto my account on the web they still stay on the webmail site (in case this is relevant)

This should do the job from the Outlook perspective

Tools
Account Settings
Choose your account and hit change
On the bottom right you'll see "more settings" click that
Go to the Advanced tab and you'll see
Leave a copy of messages on the server

Are you using POP3 or IMAP?  IMAP will automatically leave a copy on the server, and is better for syncing between devices.  If you are using POP3, you should be able to switch.

Ah ignore me - Outlook is the new Hotmail service thing I think. I now realise you mean your Outlook as in on your computer...?  Undecided

POP3... sounds complicated changing to IMAP when you have my technical ability to understand the insides of a computer software  Big Grin
