iPhone Exchange emails - Leaving deleted emails on the server

Hi,

Is there a way to configure the iPhone Exchange account to leave emails on the server when deleting them on the iPhone? We would still want to use activesync and will not be able to use POP or IMAP. Is there maybe an app that can do that?

it does leave it on the server doesn't it (in the trash folder)
you can't have it remain in your inbox on the server, and not the iphone. The 2 are synched so having them different isn't possible.

I meant leaving the email where ever it was before it was deleted, - e.g. deleting an email from Inbox would leave the email on the server's inbox folder while deleting it from the inbox on iPhone.

On a  blackberry, you can configure this behavior.

As has been stated, there is no way to do what you ask using only Exchange.  Exchange automatically synchronizes all mailboxes between all devices -- so if you are using exchange on your iPhone and delete or move a message on the iPhone it will do the same on the server and therefore in Outlook or your other Exchange-capable email clients.

The other direct way to get this behavior would be to use POP, which you stated you can't do, so that's obviously not an option.

However, if you set up up forwarding on your exchange server to forward a copy of all messages to a dummy account, say, a gmail account.  Then set your phone to check the gmail account, and you can do whatever you want to any mail on your phone without having any effect on the exchange server.
