    It can be very unreliable though.
    Many mail servers dont respect all the protocols properly in pop3.
    Especialy Virgin as I found.

    I had to switch to imap as that seemed more reliable.

    Yeah, always go with IMAP if your mail service supports it. Although, I haven't had any problems with POP3 not deleting...but not all servers are created equal.

    Also, I use K9 which I find to be vastly superior to the stock Android Email app.
