IPAD mail problem

Good morning

I use Outlook to deal with my 2 ntlworld mail addresses. I download, read, and file or delete without difficulty. If I later use my iPad I get all these messages again.

Doing things t'other way around it all works properly i.e. deleted messages don't reappear.

Ta for info/advice.

Re: IPAD mail problem

I'm guessing here that if you check your mail settings in the respective devices

Outlook is using POP3
iPad is using IMAP

Can you confirm this?

Re: IPAD mail problem

The easiest option is to use IMAP on everything.

You would need to delete the accounts in Outlook and re-add them.  Note that Virgin have recently set up autodiscover servers for their email settings, so when you re-add the accounts just let Outlook find the correct settings.

Re: IPAD mail problem

Just remember - only delete something you definitely want to go.  IMAP syncs across all devices while delete normally puts stuff in trash first, it's best to safe.
