    A quick question.... has Froyo changed the way it manages email?

    My Evo checks my POP email. I have a few accounts, no biggie. But before Froyo it would download the messages, and once the message was deleted from the server (by downloading in Outlook), the message would remain on the phone.

    After Froyo, however, the messages are better sync'ed. If I delete a message from the server, it is removed from the Evo. This is how my Palm Pre managed mail and I like it!

    Anyone notice the same? Was that a setting I overlooked?

    Lastly, signal strength has improved with Froyo. I never had better than 1 bar in my office 36 floors up, but now I get 3-4 bars. :D

    Yes, it lokks as if it defaulted the Send & Receive settings. I had to go back and and turn off deleting messages from the server on the accounts I didn't want that to happen.

    Where do you see that option? In my send & receive, i see no option that turns off deleting things from the server..

    The OP is saying that messages they have originally downloaded to the phone are now being deleted. It used to be if you downloaded messages to the phone, THEN deleted them from the server from home, the messages still stayed on your phone. Now, (as I also noticed happened), if you delete the messages from the server from your main email client (mine is POP), it is deleting them from the phone also the next time you check your email on the phone.

    I agree ... sometimes I want to leave the messages on my phone for reference (just as I want to keep messages on my main email client after downloading), but now if the message has been deleted from the server, it's automatically deleting it on the phone. There's no setting to fix that. That just started with Froyo, I definitely think you should be able to choose whether to manually delete your messages from your phone or not. It seems the only way to keep them on your phone now is to NOT delete them from the server, which sux ....

    Same here - I want to keep the mail on my EVO after I've viewed on my computer. Before Froyo, I could. Now, I can't.

    I think this is an on-purpose change. This is exactly how it was handled on the Palm Pre. On the Pre, too, I wasn't able to flag a message to not be deleted when removed from server.

    There have been times that I wanted to keep a message on my phone. Now it seem we've lost that ability. Hmmm... I suppose I could move it into a different folder, I never tried that.

    I noticed the problem as soon as my EVO restarted following the froyo update. All messages I had been keeping on my phone initially showed up and then disappeared as soon as it was detected the messages were no longer on the server. I finally realized the messages are deleted on the phone after I have downloaded them on my PC, which deletes them on the server. This was not the pre-froyo behavior.

    I found a message in another thread that said HTC Support responded "we are aware of the issue and working to resolve it as quickly as possible". The Sprint Support site seems to be having problems right now, so I have not been able to check there.

    I have a HTC Incredible and my Mail application was working perfectly for my two POP email accounts. After the Froyo 2.2 update, all my stored email disappeared. My inbox will receive new email and keep it there for a time, but a few hours it disappears. This is very frustrating, because I need to keep much of my email in the inbox so I can go back and reply or reference it.

    Even K-9 Mail does the same thing, so I suspect it's not the individual application, but the way in which Froyo handles POP email. By the way, my gmail app works just fine.

    K9 has a setting to "Sync remote deletions". If you uncheck it, your mail will stay on your phone even though you've removed it via your desktop/laptop computer.

    Also, you may want to set every client that accesses your mailbox to "leave mail on server" and "delete from server when I delete".

    Finally, if you can, go with IMAP so you don't have to worry about all of these settings.
