I have a Desire HD and I was having major issues with hotmail pop. I could send emails from my phone but it would not show incoming messages.... So I changed the account to use activesync instead and yippee I can now both send and receive emails (and push too!) however one really annoying issue is that if I read an email on my phone it does not sync the status to the account so each time it refreshes all my messages become unread again! also it will not sync the deleted status so all the messages I delete on my phone re-appear on refresh! if I read a mail on my hotmail account (on the pc) this change is reflected on my phone and the message is synced across as read. What on earth have I done wrong?
