outlook.com is Microsoft's new free web email service and you can specify not to delete email from server

I was extremely frustrated that some yahoo.ca email messages which I deleted from my Z10 also deleted them from my yahoo.ca account on their server!  I should have checked the forums and BB how-to's before doing that.  Well, I have just discovered that there is a new Microsoft free email service that I knew nothing about called outlook.com, and I am not here speaking of the Microsoft email organizer and program called Outlook, that is something else...  it must be some kind of alternative to hotmail.com...  anyway, it's very nice and simple and clean, and well worth trying.  Also you can hold emails on their server but delete them from the Z10...  Anyone else using this?

oops, no I'm wrong. It does delete, but the outlook.com service immediately puts it in another folder called Deleted which at least stays there and is visible... but I presume you can't make subfolders within it... so, it's wishful thinking on my part that BlackBerry will soon add the capability to leave emails on the server. I just don't like cluttering up my phone with everything on there...

Re: outlook.com is Microsoft's new free web email service and you can specify not to delete email from server

Yes, the Outlook.com email is great -- I have two accounts myself.  FYI -- If you haven't found this already, look at the "Alias" options.  You can create alternate email addresses for receiving newsletters, promo material etc., and can specify those go to a prticular folder.  You can use these without endangering your main email address.

 

But as to your notion about not cluttering your device, here's what I've done.  Create a folder in Outlook.com for the messages you want to keep, but don't necessarily want on your device.  In the account settings on your device, don't check that folder to be synced.  When you receive an email on your device that fits that category, you can then file the message to that folder and it will appear to be gone from your device.  If you go back to the webmail page, you'll see it's been moved from the Inbox to that folder.  Easy-peasy.  Just a suggestion, but it works well for me.

Well well, I wondered about that...  I'll try that, and report my success with it.  Yahoo.ca seemed to give everything to the Z10 checked for syncing or not, but I may have been wrong on that...  will investigate and report.

outlook.com is very nice I use it to fetch my gmail account since gmail did not support Exchange active sync anymore
