    Default Emails are getting deleted on server.....
    OK Ive done this before on my other iPhone but I cant get this new one figured out.

    I have an IMAP Email account. It works fine except when I delete off the phone it deletes off the server.

    Under advanced settings > Deleted Messages > (I have selected never)

    Under deleted mailbox I have selected:
    on my phone-Trash

    on server nothing (inbox is greyed out.)

    please help-What am I missing?

    Isn't that what IMAP is supposed to do? I have never been a fan of IMAP for this reason.I mainly use my iPhone to read messages but I like to manage them on my computer. I lost a whole bunch of messages when I first set up my Gmail account on my iPhone. I now have it set up as a POP mail (you need to set it up manually to do that - do not select Gmail when setting the account up).

    I just deleted that account and added it as a POP account and all is good now. Thanks
