    I log onto my Hotmail account using my laptop through my web browser www.hotmail.co.uk and have just deleted a lot of messages from inbox/sent items/junk folder and then from the deleted messages itself, but they are still showing on my android phone. I always like to use my laptop to delete messages as find it easier than using my phone. I have a Huwaei Kestrel, is there any way in the settings on my laptop when in outlook that I can change them, so that when I delete messages from my laptop, it also deletes them on my phone?

    Check the email account settings; if it uses the POP3 protocol then there should be a setting to "keep copy on server" (or something similar). You need to disable that so that local deletions are mirrored.

    The email app probably didn't refresh right away could also be the case
