Saving received email messages on POP3

Is anybody who knows how I can keep the received messages from a POP 3 account on the device after deleting them on server?

I would appreciate a response, as I think it is an important matter for the ones who want a direct access to the emails received, even after deleting them on server.

Thanks!

Re: Saving received email messages on POP3

Hello,

I do not have any accounts integrated as POP anymore (no need for such an old configuration anymore), but even prior to BB10, POP email accounts would reconcile items deleted at the server up to the BB (removing them from the BB). Via BIS, one could defeat that function...but, now there is no more BIS...it's all on-device ActiveSync now, and if you don't see a setting in your Account Settings for that account that would let you control that, then it's not available.

There has been much discussion about many issues related to email delivery, retention, and "delete on" capabilities...it is heard here that BB is actually looking into those features and may well apply some of them in future OS versions. But, if and when they will cannot be firmly answered.

For now, you must live within the restriction that the device and the server are intended to be a replica of each other, reconciling any changes made on one over to the other.

Good luck!

Re: Saving received email messages on POP3

Thanks for the feedback!
Anyway, this is something that is making a difference for the moment between BB and competition. I think if this restriction will be removed, than they will be able to gain more customers from the small-medium business segment.
In rest, seems to be a nice phone, but for somebody who is not working in a corporation, and the hosting space of the email is limited... this feature of the email - being able to keep the messages on the device independent of server - will bring a lot of admiration and satisfaction.
Thanks !

Re: Saving received email messages on POP3

I suppose I could agree...but for one thing...the BB will always be limited in it's storage capacity and such...it's a mobile device after all.

For me, I use a full PC-based Outlook client as my "master repository" for everything...all email comes to it and it even auto-copies everything that arrives into a PST for permanent storage. That way, I can (via any device or interface) manage the Inbox to my needs (deleting from anywhere anything that is no longer "current") yet the items are permanently stored in that Outlook client regardless of what I may do elsewhere.

But, to each his own! Good luck!
