    HELLO!

    I have a question regarding microsoft exchange email and am hoping someone can help me! My Droid Incredible is hooked up to my Exchange server. How can I delete emails off my phone without it deleting off of my computer? I have looked through the phone settings and wasn't able to find anything...Does anyone know how to fix this? PLEASE HELP!!!

    Thank you!!:D:)

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    In a normal POP3 email client you simply would check a setting to not delete the emial from the server. With an Exchange client you're technically making a comparable connection to the server in the same way that MS Outlook connects to the server. As such I'm not sure there is a way to set it to allow you to delete from the client but not from the server... Unless, of course, you connect to the service using a different protocol, assuming that your particular Exchange server supports it, like POP3 or IMAP.

    Ooh okok, I have to find out more about the type of email...so if I can do POP3/IMAP, how would I set it to only delete on the phone?
