I have my emails (pop3 ntlworld) on my android phone (Huwawei) About 2 weeks ago they started disappearing. They stay in the inbox for about 2 days then vanish, they are not in the delete folder. Strangely, I have another email account (IMAP virginmedia) on the same phone that is not affected.
I have both accounts on another android phone and it is not affected. I'm not deleting the emails from any device or from the server. I've contacted Huwawei but they say it's not a problem with the phone.
Can anyone offer any fixes?
I'm a bit of a technophobe so please keep any answers simple!
Miss PAsko thank you for your help and the link you provided. I've done as suggested ...now I have to wait. emails usually stay put for between 24/36 hours so it#ll be a couple of days before I can come back and let you know/
More for information as use of IMAP is likely to resolve issue… It is likely your device / email client is configured to remove read emails from the Inbox after N days to maintain local storage; I suspect if such emails were moved to another local folder then they would not be deleted.
As a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share my knowledge. I don't work for Virgin Media.
I posted earlier about emails disappearing from my phone and was given advice on some fixes which I've tried but have obviously done something wrong because I'm not receiving emails. I deleted and re-installed the account on my phone but am getting this message
