I'm a former Blackberry user and I want to know if my HTC can be set so if I delete a message on the phone it doesn't delete on my Exchange outlook.  I could do this on BB.

If you are configured via Activesync - no - if you are configured via POP3, yes.

You were able to this with your BB because you had a Bes Server. With HTC this is using Active Sync, to sync with your mailbox on the Exchange Server.

Thanks.  Is there a setting for how often the phone checks for email?  It seems like I have to touch the mail button for it to start receiving.

Setting a sync schedule

By default, your phone automatically syncs your work email, calendar and contacts with your corporate Exchange Server at a fixed schedule. You can change the sync schedule, or disable auto synchronization if you prefer to manually sync your phone.

Press HOME > MENU, and then tap Settings > Data synchronization > Exchange ActiveSync.
Tap Schedule, and then select your choice from the Schedule menu.
Tap a time interval that you want to use for automatic synchronization.
Tap As items arrive if you want your phone to sync whenever there are new email messages, calendar events, or changes to your work contacts.
Tap Manual if you want to manually sync your phone.
Changing sync settings

You can control how work email and calendar events are synchronized and downloaded to your phone.

Press HOME > MENU, and then tap Settings > Data synchronization > Exchange ActiveSync.
Press MENU, and then tap Settings.
There are three groups of settings that you can customize:
General Settings. Specify how to resolve conflict when the same items exist on both your phone and the Exchange Server. If you need to change your Exchange ActiveSync account settings, tap Configure server.
Mail settings. Control the amount of work email by setting limits for the number of days of email messages that are downloaded to your phone. You can also set the mail size limit, message format (HTML or plain text), and choose whether to include file attachments.
Calendar settings. Set the number of weeks of calendar events to sync to your phone.
Press BACK after you are have finished changing the settings.
