New to this forum and so glad I found it. I basically went to Deadspin to read sports, then saw Gizmodo, to which I then saw TiPb. So hello to all!

I am having problems with my email on my Iphone 3g. I have three gmail accounts linked and my hotmail account which is my main account. It is so old that I can't get rid of it, otherwise I would dump hotmail. When I read my email on my iphone and delete what has been read, when I then login to my email on my computer, everything I deleted still shows up as unread mail in my inbox. How can I make the email I delete on my iphone, be permanently deleted?

Thanks for the help!

Probably need to wait for your phone to actually tranmsit the data to the server so that it does delete before you check it on the pc

In Gmail make sure you have imap enabled and your accounts are set up as imap on your phone and your computer. On hotmail if you can you would need to do the same.
