    Ok, so I have a few questions. Just got my Eris today (upgraded from a Blackberry Curve) and was wondering if I can do the following -

    On my Blackberry I could view all my messages (missed calls, voicemail notifications, e-mails from 4 different accounts and texts) in one place, is there an app or program that allows me to do this on the Eris?

    Also, I have 3 gmail accounts (2 work, 1 personal) and yet another work e-mail. I have all 4 linked to my computer's Outlook. With my Blackberry, when I would delete an e-mail it gave me the option to delete it just on the Blackberry or on the Blackberry and the server so it wouldn't download into my Outlook the next time I turned on my computer. Is there a way to do that with the Eris? I just don't want to have to delete the same e-mail multiple times if I delete it from my phone or have to keep the e-mail on my phone if I just want to keep it on the computer to reply to later. I also want to make sure my Outlook will download e-mails even if they show up as read on gmail because I read them on my phone.

    Not sure if I'm being clear on what I'm asking, so let me know if you need clarification.

    TIA!

    Thanks, that sorta answers one of my questions. Basically right now there is no way to view all messages (e-mails or otherwise) in the SAME inbox. However by changing the notification option on the gmail app I can get all the e-mails in the same mail app, but I still have to go between accounts. It's better than having to go between apps, but still not ideal.

    I still would like to know about the deleting part though. If/when I delete an e-mail on the Eris, does it delete it from the e-mail server? Or will I have to delete e-mails manually on the computer, or in Outlook?

    I think i saw a setting where you can have it only delete it from the app on the phone or delete it from app and server.. Browser around the settings im not sure exactly where i saw it but im pretty sure i did.

    Go to the Mail app Menu>More>Settings>Send & Receive> Check delete on Mail server.

    Thats for the HTC Mail app BTW

    Gmail automatically deletes mail from the server as default not sure if theres a setting for gmail.

    Thanks, that takes care of the Mail app account.

    Maybe this is more of an outlook question than Eris question...but I still would like to know if because the Gmail message is marked as read on the server after I read it on the Eris (or is it?) will it not download to my Outlook? Sometimes I will read an e-mail but don't need to respond right away or just want to save it for reference so I want to delete it from my phone but want it to then go to my Outlook for me to deal with when I get to my computer.

    Yea if you open it on the Eris it will be marked as read. Its just like going to www.gmail.com when you use the Eris gmail app.

    On MS Outlook, there is a delivery setting to leave a copy of email on server.

    What I ideally want is if I read an e-mail message in the Gmail app, it will still download to my Outlook unless I have deleted it through the Gmail app. Even MORE ideal would be if I could have the option to delete it from the phone or delete it from the phone AND the server. Looks like that's not an option with the Mail app or the Gmail app. I only have the option to not delete a message from the server when I delete a message from the Mail app, but I can't be prompted for each e-mail whether I want to delete it from just the phone or from both.

    I guess it's not the end of the world, it just means that if I delete an e-mail on my phone, it's still going to download into Outlook and I'll have to delete it twice.

    You could just check the setting to delete from server only when you want to delete both, and uncheck when you want to keep it. Seems like a hassle but ya gotta do what ya gotta do sometimes XD
