    Inside your email program (dont know which one you use, so I'm gonna keep it broad) go to settings ->delete sync options. In this menu you can set how the program should behave while deleting emails.

    Why are you deleting emails on your phone that you don't want to actually be deleted? It's not like the phone is deleting emails on its own, is it? Email isn't being deleted from the exchange server as it's delivered to the phone, right? If it is you're configured in a mode that is really the wrong way to go.

    Also if you're truly configured with Exchange Activesync (the best option), if you accidentally delete an email it ends up in the trash folder. I'm able to pull those emails from the trash back on my desktop if I need to.

    Thanks for the help I am using Outlook so I will review the sync options (the reason I delete from the phone is that I can recieve upwards of 200 emails a day on very sensitive subjects which need to be kept secured, and my lap top is the secure device not the phone - hence in the BB world I read answer delete but never off the laptop (it is a complicated sys) - the people in the office are saying iPhone has the same process - I need to change my way of thinking) - but the phone can play Angry Birds which i am well pleased at :)

    Those e-mails aren't on your laptop; they are on the Exchange Server and your laptop is just viewing them, no differently than your phone.

    For security, lock the phone and encrypt its contents (Settings|Security) like you do with your laptop.
