Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Support Forums.
Mark, are you on a corporate BES or a personal BIS? That will happen easily on a BES.
On a BIS, you won't get those "read" reconciles and your BB-sent email. I some extreme IMAP server setups you might, but I am not even positive there.

First, as noted above, true reconciliation only works with BES.
That said, if you're using BIS, personal email through a service like Yahoo or Gmail, you need to understand how email works.
Email sent to you is sent to an Email server. Typically you can access this email directly through a Web interface. However, if you're using a Client lik Outlook, the email is copied down to your computer, and it's marked as Read on the server, but it's marked as Unread on your computer until you read it. Email on your computer won't be marked as Read on your computer once you've read them on your BlackBerry unless you set it up in Desktop Manager and do a wired synchronization.
HOWEVER, many services including Yahoo! Plus and Gmail now reconcile Read messages on their servers. Yahoo! Plus seems to do it automatically.
I don't know about the free Yahoo email service. I just tested this with a Free Yahoo account, and you can optionally set this type of account to use Wireless Reconciliation too. You need to set up Gmail as an IMAP client in the BIS setup to get this to work. Once properly set up, when you read an email on your BlackBerry, it's marked as Read on the server. This will not effect the read status on your computer since when your email client pulls down the email, as far as it's concerned, it's still unread!
Instructions for setting up a Gmail account with an IMAP connection can be found here:
Hope that helps.

Related question... I have a BB Storm 9530. I had to wipe it to eliminate a chronic freezing problem (that part worked!). Now, when I try to delete an individual message, I'm asked "Delete message?" On Mailbox & Handheld or On Handheld or CANCEL.
There WAS a setting, I think under Email Reconciliation, that allowed me to bypass that and ALWAYS delete on HANDHELD only.
Now, under Email Reconciliation, there is a drop-down menu for the 4 email accounts I use on my BB, but no other options regardless of which account I choose. 3 are Gmail accounts (I use IMAP), and the last is a Yahoo account (POP3).
HELP??? How do I get it to stop prompting me for where to delete?? I've already taken "confirm delete" NO under Messages/General Options.
Thanks in advance!!

I have a new Torch 9800 and having problems with my email syncing/reconciliation. I have a private/personal email account - POP3 - so I have to sync via the desktop manager. But it's not working. The calendar works sometime - one way actually. How do I get it to work properly? I've tick wireless reconciliation OFF but nothing. I don't see any email setting in the desktop manager. So now what? How can I get it to work?
Thanks for your help.
