    How does one copy the sent email folder and content from one's phone to a computer? I am using the android email program on a Galaxy SII phone. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Go to the computer. Open your email program. Go to your email account. Copy the folder to your computer, using whatever method your email program uses.

    Thanks for your response, Rukbat. When I hook up my telephone to my computer, I am able to view my phone as if it were an external hard drive. However, I cannot see the sent folder in the directory.

    Hi

    Why don't you set up the same email account on your computer (Using the same server settings)?

    It appears that the sent e-mails are localized to whatever device I am using. For example, if I send an e-mail via my computer, it shows up in the sent folder on my computer only. When I send an e-mail via my phone, it shows up in the sent folder on my phone only. Does it have anything to do with it is a POP server?

    Hi

    Yes, use imap and it will properly sync across devices.

    Hi Roger-
    I will do as you suggest and use IMAP. That said, I will need to find a different e-mail service as the one that I am using uses POP.
    Thanks again,
    M
