When using the stock email client (not gmail) I find that emails disappear after a short while even though I haven’t manually deleted them. I can’t find a way to stop this happening. Any suggestions?
If your email is the mobile version of a desktop service you may need to find the account settings via your desktop and edit any automatic delete settings there. Or that may be no hope at all, but that’s what springs immediately to mind.
Hi Molepox, Yes, My PC is set to delete from the server after I have downloaded my emails, which is what I want. When I check my emails on the nexus it re-syncs and those that are no longer at the server are deleted from the Nexus inbox. So I need to find a way to just download any new emails and leave the existing ones as they are. Emails are not deleted at the server after I have downloaded them to the tablet, which is what I want.
Do you not have an option to “delete after x days”. That way you’d get everything on everything and can manage as required. Worst case, I’d set to leave them on the server and go on and manually handle it there.
Hi Michael, I can’t find anything to do with deleting incoming emails. I could as you say set Outlook Express so that read emails are not deleted at the server. I’ll give that a try.
My Windows Live inbox empties for no apparent reason (they are not in the junk or deleted folders). Their are no rules set on the email client (Outlook.com) and emails are kept on the server and can be viewed on my phone and PC. So where do they go. This is obviously a Nexus failure.
I’m afraid I don’t use the outlook client so can’t offer any tips myself but it’s worth adding that this is unlikely to be a problem with your tablet. Android / Nexus will have no influence over third party apps such as the Microsoft produced Outlook app. The best place to seek help will be through Microsoft support.
You could also highlight the problem via a review on the Play store app page. I can see that there are other people having similar issues although on the whole there are more positive reviews than negative.
