Deleting email with no internet (exchange)
Ok, so I am on my first business trip since switching from BlackBerry to iPhone and iPad.
One thing that really got on my nerves is when I was on a flight, I was going thru my emails and deleting some stuff. However, a second or 2 after I delete, the email comes back into the inbox and I get a message saying something like: unable to delete message since I have no connection to the internet.
So what??!!! Why can't the delete action just get synched later on when I do have a connection?
It worked just fine in blackberry, and my windows laptop.
Anybody know a way around this?
I am using Microsoft Exchange email.

Thanks for the reply, but I think you are mistaken.
On my BB, yes I was connected to RIM, but RIM was then connected to my exchange server.
Also on my Windows Mobile phone which also uses exchange like my iphone, I don't have this problem either.

RIM maintains an active connection to your mail server. When you receive email, RIM pushes them to your phone. Your phone caches those emails pushed to you. When you delete an email while not connected to a cellular network, it is deleted off the phone. When you reconnect with the network, your phone reconciles emails with RIM's server.
Long story short, a limitation with most mobile mail apps.
