    I've installed K9 on my DX and have a question -

    Is there a specific setting in K9 to leave email on server after fetching? I see some options for K9 handling deletions and syncing, but nothing that says "Leave Email On Server".

    K9 seems to be a great solution for mimicking Outlook Express behavior and even seems to handle the SSL requirements on our Qwest email accounts.

    Thanks.

    Open K-9. Long press on account name. Account options window will pop up. Select Account settings. Go to Fetching mail. Look for "When I delete a message." From there you can choose what to do.

    Thank you. I think I'm a little to Outlook Express oriented. I did a few tests and K9 does leave the email on the server after a fetch which is just what I needed.

    It's tough moving away from something so similar. I was used to using Hotmail as my web email accounts. Then I switched to Gmail when I got my android and it's like a whole new ball game.

    I have the same problem for which you provided a solution. Unfortunately it doesnt seem to work for me. Scenario is:
    - I use Gmail.
    - If I send an email to myself it arrives in my Gmail Inbox
    - K-9 then fetches the email, but then it disappears from my Gmail Inbox.
    - What I need is for the email to remain in my Gmail Inbox after K-9 has fetched it.

    Can this be done?

    I would appreciate any help and guidance anyone can give. Thanks.
