Gmail/Pop on TP2

When I set up my gmail account on my TP2 it will only allow me to use IMAP.

Basically what happens, I go a couple of days with out checking my email at home with Outlook. I check emails on the phone and delete them from the phone, when I download through outlook I get days worth of emails. I only need the ones that are in my inbox online but I get all of them even the deleted ones.

When I had it set up as a POP account it would delete them but the phone won't let me change it to a POP setting.

Solutions?

Thanks!

You can do it!

There is on trick to setup a pop for gmail.

Since Outlook Mobile will automatically set you up to gmail if you enter a gmail email address to start with, I enter my address, but temporarily change it to something else (joe.blow@gmail1.com). That way Outlook Mobile does not automatically set it up for you.

After I finish with the setup, I go back and correct the server name. No problems.

Hope that makes sense.

If you set up your desktop Outlook as IMAP as well, you should see the same thing on the phone and the desktop.

Awesome.

Yeah that is a PITA when you want a pop setup but it decides for you that you want imap.

Glad it works for you.
