I have a new iPhone 5s and I hooked it up to my desktop which does not have an Exchange server. I was able to get both my calendar and contacts to sync but not my mail. When I read or delete an email from either iPhone or desktop they do not communicate and delete or showed email read on the other device. Please assist.

Thank you
Michael

Hi Solsticeint,

I guess the issue is occurring due to the POP3 account which is configured in Microsoft Outlook and by default POP3 account delete a copy from the server once it download email from the server.

So, you need to create a copy of each email on the server with the help of “Leave a copy of the messages on the server” option.

This option will automatically create the copy of each email so you could access them from the other devices (iPhone5s).

Real more about “Leave a copy of the messages on the server”: http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/outlook-help/leave-e-mail-messages-on-your-e-mail-server-HA001150793.aspx

Thank you, makes sense.  Was not sure if by syncing the iPhone it would update the email.  I wish the company would do an exchange plan.  

Thank you,

I would imagine your company would be able to easily afford Office 365 at $4.00 per user per month which would give you a much better experience and then you could sync your phone with your email.

Probably cheaper than their POP3 accounts too.
