iphone

i have an iphone and i get my company email which is from an exchange server. I used to have a blackberry and the setup on the blackberry was emails deleted on my laptop were then deleted on the blackberry - but if i delete off the blackberry first - it would not delete off the laptop, which is what i prefer. for the iphone, it is the opposite - if i delete off the iphone, it deletes off my laptop. is there a way to setup the iphone like the blackberry?

This depends on how the iPhone is configured to sync with Exchange. If it is using Exchange Active Sync or IMAP then you will not have any control over how deleted items are handled. When deleted from the iPhone it is deleted from the Exchange server and when deleted from the laptop (assuming you are using Outlook) it is deleted from the iPhone.

The iPhones use Activesync - which by it's very name suggests that the mail on the iPhone is synced to the Exchange server and thus if you delete a message from an iPhone, it will be deleted from the Exchange Server and thus Outlook if configured for Exchange too.

You could configure the iPhone to use POP3 / SMTP, but that would be like buying a Ferrari and then only using it for the school run.

i bet i am using activesync - but to be sure - would i be using activesync if when i add an email account i "click" on "microsoft exchange" - then add all the appropriate settings. if it is setup like this - then it is using activesync?

I managed to put my Blackberry back in the box after about 3 weeks and have never wanted to touch one again since!

Used to be a die-hard Windows Mobile phone user - but I am converted and won't be looking back again.  It sure takes some beating IMHO.

Sorry that you can't do what you want to do with Activesync.  Thanks for the points.
