    Dear All,

    Hello. I bought a MS 640xl a few weeks back. I synced my email using the default app but noticed it is saved on the phone memory despite of having a 32 GB SD card. Is there any way I can save all of it on the SD Card. Or is there any good third party email app that can help me to do it. Can there be security concerns where it comes to privacy with these apps. I am looking to sync my gmail/icloud/outlook for the same.

    Any help is appreciate !!

    To the best of my awareness, email is stored only on the phone's memory. The same is true for Windows 10 for Mobile (as of build 10166). There are very few third party email apps. Metro Mail is an option but I would expect that it, too, would store its files in the phone's memory and not on the SD card.

    Same here, haven't figured this out. So with the OS itself, emails, and maps, I'm almost completely out of room on the main memory. Hope Win10 will allow at least the maps to go to sd.

    Maps on WP8 can be stored on the SD Card. You have to configure that in storage sense. You will need to delete and download your maps again for that to be effective (if I recall correctly).

    I'm not sure about WP8, I have WP8.1 update 2, in storage sense, my 4 options are : 1) store new music, videos, and podcasts on my 2) Store new photos on my 3) Store new apps on my 4) store new downloads on my

    All 4 are set to SD card, and map downloads still go to main memory.

    "WP8" is used to globally cover all variations on the mobile OS in my previous post. RichardTheKing nailed it. I was right that WP8, for a while, had the ability to store maps on SD cards.. But Microsoft removed that ability back in April. I somehow missed this article by Daniel: http://www.windowscentral.com/micros...-storage-cards

    That. Sucks.

    Looks like a hack/workaround might be available, if you're up for trying it:

    Specifically, Ultrashricco posted the following:

    "You can bring offline map storage to SD card back by modifying 3 registry keys, like so:

    You will need to developer-unlock the phone first with the WP SDK, and then install vcREG to be able to edit the registry: (h t t p : / /)forum.xda-developers.com/windows-phone-8/help/qa-vcreg-lumia-reg-editor-live-interop-t3135348

    It is long and somewhat complicated, but it worked on my Lumia 640!"
