    Trying a Win 8 phone, on my BlackBerry when i delete an email it also deletes from our small office exchange server and outlook. But when I delete an email from the W8 phone it does not delete from server. Is there a way to get this done.

    WP8 does not force a sync when you delete an email or move it to a folder. It will wait until the next incoming email for it to sync, or you can force a manual sync.

    This is to save battery/data. I wish it was more instant, but you will get used to it.

    I think that the philosophy behind "don't sync on delete" is that people often handle their unread mail in two passes: 1) go through deleting the obvious junk, then 2) handle what's left which may involve reading, responding, and deleting). In such a scenario, forcing a sync between items in phase could be wasteful. I believe that responding to a message also forces a sync so any response may cause the deletion of items to get back to the server.
