Webmail - mobile phone - Outlook

Answered
My brand new Samsung Galaxy s9 doesn't give me the "don't sync inbox" option that my HTC allowed. That means my phone can't act as a storage device for Telstra bigpond emails, because when I download them onto my computer through Outlook they disappear from the server - and therefrom my phone. I don't think there's a "save inbox" option on Webmail. And I can't find anything on Outlook to uncheck. This problem makes my phone unfit for purpose. Does anyone have any solutions? Thank you, grateful for any ideas.

Re: Webmail - mobile phone - Outlook

To stop emails being deleted when downloaded to PC open outlook go to your bigpond email account settings > more settings > advanced tab and place tick next to "Leave a copy on message on server". In the image below messages will still be deleted from server and the phone after 14 days. If you want to leave a permanent copy remove tick from remove after 14 days.

If be able to save a permanent copy on the phone set up the email client on your phone to use POP instead of IMAP. When setting up account select "Manual Setup" and use these settings. If set up as POP there will still be a copy of the  on the phone when they are removed from server.

I'll try changing the phone to POP, thank you. If it works that's better than saving emails on the server. Will post again regarding success or otherwise.

Re: Webmail - mobile phone - Outlook

So - thanks for the reply to my question. But I want to make sure I"m doing the right thing if I change the settings on my phone. 

Here are the account settings on my Galaxy s9. (ID is scrubbed out)

Are you saying I should just change the incoming server to POP instead of imap? Is it case sensitive? ie, POP or pop?

And will that keep copies of any emails downloaded onto my phone, while still allowing all emails to be also downloaded onto my computer?
