I've got the new HTC Windows Phone 8X and set up my personal POP3 Outlook email account. I can't find a setting to tell the account to NOT delete my email from the server. Is there a way to do this? I do not want the phone to delete my mail from the server.

Thanks for the reply Riddlin, I guess I'm still on the learning curve with the 8X. I found as long as I don't delete them from the phone, the email is still available on the server. If I read and delete from the phone, it does delete from the server as well.

Asking for a friend: if you're using a POP Outlook email account on your 8X, are you getting to synch your calendar and contacts also? My friend is at a company that uses Outlook, but does not have an Exchange server (as I do at work). She is having trouble getting her calendar and contacts to synch. I don't think her IT set it up correct. Any help would be appreciated.

The POP3 protocol removes from mail from the server unless there is an option in the client to leave it. I am unsure if the client on 8X has this feature or not. I don't know who you are using for email, but if they have an IMAP option, that would work as it leaves mail on the server.

The behavior on Windows Phone 7 was like this: When you deleted emails on your phone, they were also deleted on the server, even when the option was set to leave the mails. I always thought this is a terrible solution, but with IMAP I don't care anymore.
