    I just got an HTC Desire through Telus (running Eclair), and while I'm absolutely loving it, I have a couple of questions.

    1. I have an email address set up as a POP account. (I used this same email address on my previous phone without issues.) I read my mail on the phone during the day, then in the evening I access it from my computer, downloading the messages into Thunderbird and removing them from the server. On the phone, the next time it checks that email account, I would expect it to remove the messages from my phone, as they've been deleted from the server. It doesn't, though, and I then have to delete everything a second time. I've never had to do this in any other way of accessing this email account. Does anyone have any thoughts on how I can get back to the behaviour I'm expecting?

    2. Telus seems to be one of the very few carriers who won't allow a long distance call to go through without a "1" in front of it. My previous phones have had an option to automatically put a "1" in fron the numbers when dialing, but I'm not seeing anything like that. Is there any way to do this (other than just manually putting a "1" at the front of every number in the contacts)?

    Thank you!

    Just a partial solution for anyone else reading this with the same issue - I was able to work around the email issue with K-9 rather than the stock email app. K-9 has an option "sync remote deletion" that, when turned on, gives the behaviour I was looking for.
