I want to stop emails syncing across devices

Hi

I have 3 devices with emails plus the Bigpond Webmail account.

 

I want one device to be my Master record of the emails. I want the emails on the other devices plus the Bigpond webmail to be deleted after 2 weeks.  This was how I used to have it set up but something changed.

Is this possible? What do I need to do?

 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: I want to stop emails syncing across devices

On your master device set it up to use POP3 and to delete messages from sever after 14 days. On your other two devices set them up to use IMAP. When POP3 is used the messages are downloaded to device and stored. They don't get deleted on device when deleted from server. With IMAP the messages are also downloaded to device but are synchronized with server. If message is removed from server it is also deleted on the devices using IMAP.

Thank you that makes alot of sense. What is the set up for POP3? Otherwise where can I find this? I have the IMAP one.

You can find the IMAP & POP settings for Telstra Mail on the webpage
