    I hope this is an easy fix and just a matter of settings that I don't understand :confused:

    I have a few hotmail accounts and I access them via Live Mail on my work computer and my home computer as well as my hero. If I delete them on my home computer they still show up on my hero (Same with my work computer... delete and stills hows on my hero)

    What settings do I need to flip so that if I delete the emails on one system they don't show up on any of the other systems. (same with showing read)

    Is it a matter of IMPA vs POP3?

    It gets annoying to have to delete 30+ emails every morning on my hero after I've read them on my PC.

    IMAP should be the preferred setting to make this happen. If not, its a limitation of the Microsoft Live Mail product.

    spoke too soon... Hotmail does not support IMAP :(

    BUT... doing some more digging on this site I did find that I can hit menu delete and delete multiple emails at once... makes life a little easier.

    Hmm... This does not happen on my hotmail acct. If I delete mail from the computer I don't get it on the phone. Not sure this will help at all, but here is how my acct. settings look -

    Incoming settings:
    Protocol - POP
    POP server - pop3.live.com
    Security type - SSL
    Server port - 995

    Outgoing server settings:
    SMTP server - smtp.live.com
    Security type - TLS
    Server port - 587

    What do you use as your mail client? I've been using Windows Live Mail for years... not a big fan of MS products per se, but it's worked for my msn, hotmail, and gmail accounts all in one place.

    I tried Thunderbird, but I seem to remember running into issues with hotmail's settings.

    I just use the Hotmail site in a Firefox browser.
