Mail Not Deleting From Server?

Dec 8, 2010

Does anyone else have this problem? I have my mail accounts set so that they should delete emails from the server as soon as they are deleted from ipad. It doesn't seem to work though.. as I just came back home after a trip and all the dozens of email messages came flooding into my Mac inbox

Does anyone have any suggestions? Do I also need to delete the mail on the ipad's mail trash perhaps...

Mail Is Deleting From Server?

Nov 27, 2010

I have a POP account set up to run on my iMac, MacBook Pro and iPad. Under Mail:Preferences:Advanced we are set up on the first two to Remove copy from server after one week. Going fine with the iPad, too, until I downloaded the new iPad OS on Wednesday. Since then, the act of downloading email to the iPad clears the server.So, on the iPad, I go to Settings:Mail:Account:Advanced - and where others say I should see "Delete from Server - Never" - I find "IMAP Path Prefix."Something has changed and I'm - as usual - out of my depth! Any help would be gratefully received...

IPad 2 :: Email Not Deleting Off Server From IOS

Mar 2, 2012

I searched the forums but did not find anything relating to my query. I have set up iOS to delete emails from the server when deleted from the inbox using iOS native email app.

A couple of minutes later, the whole inbox has downloaded again, this happens several times through out the day, until I log in via the web browser and manually delete them off the server.

This was on iOS 4 on my iPod Touch and the same on my iPad 2 with iOS 5. Excuse my language, but its starting to ........ me off!

Deleting AOL Messages Offline Does Not Delete From AOL Server

Sep 16, 2010

I set up the resident Mail application to access her AOL. On a laptop, she used the AOL Webmail interface (not a separate mail program).When she opens a message and reads it on the iPad, and later checks AOL online, the message has moved from "New Mail" to "Old Mail", just as it should. But if she DELETES a message on the iPad, and later checks AOL online, the message has not been deleted. I've used AOL/IMAP on other (non-Apple) devices and systems, and it's operated fine. This is my first experience with this craziness. I'm sure there's a setting somewhere I'm overlooking, but not finding it. So, can anyone tell me, when she deletes AOL messages from the iPad Mail application, how can we set it up to delete from the server?

Ipad 2 Suddenly Deleting Emails From Server?

Mar 29, 2012

I started out with an ipad 1, it gave me the option of not deleting email messages from the server when I delete the message from the ipad. When I upgraded to an iPad 2, my emails still did not get deleted from the server. Suddenly last night, when I delete a message from the ipad it is deleted from the server and gone forever. This is no good. I have been told I need to change the email account from IMAP to POP but I see only one place to make that change but it will not take.

Mail App- Deleting Emails Causes Older Mail To Pop In

Apr 11, 2011

So my wife just got a new iPad2. She loves it, but mail is behaving unexpectedly. She doesn't remember this happening before, but yesterday she told me that deleting mail wasn't working, that it kept coming back into the inbox.

So I did some testing, and the individual emails she was deleting weren't coming back. Rather, once she deleted an email, mail was then loading in an older email. I can only guess that mail wants to keep a certain number of emails in the inbox at all times. Is this correct? It seems weird to me because my iPhone doesn't behave this way.

So, first off, can someone confirm that this is normal behavior for mail on the iPad2? Second, if this is normal, is there a way to change a setting so that it doesn't load in older emails after deleting emails in the inbox?

Losing Mail Off Server?

Apr 20, 2010

I am set up with Outlook Express on my computer. I have configured my Ipad mail to access my ISP server (Road Runner). When I wake up in the morning, I can read my mail on my computer. When I want to look at the same mail on my Ipad, I can't read it, although any new mail that comes in appears there. In other words, if I access my computer before accessing my Ipad, the mail won't show up on my Ipad if I look for it later.

Will Not Connect To My Mail Server

Nov 11, 2010

I have just got an Ipad and tried to set up my mail server.I have a server that has SMTP on port 25 and IMAP configured on the default port 143, nothing special.In addition, I have port 144 for secure IMAP and 26 for secure SMTP. SSL is a self signed certificate for a custom root that is installed in all devices that allow it.I use SSL exclusively here and every laptop, desktop and other device works fine with it.I first tried to set the Ipad up with this, but when it did not work, I deleted the account and tried the non secure standard 25/143.The failure message - "Cannot Get Mail - The connection to the server "name" failed." happens straight after entering the mail application. After many failures,I turned on logging on my mail server and found whenever I attempted to retrieve emails, the following message happens:TCPConnection - SSL handshake with client failed.
