Question Trying to understand email nuances

Please Login to Remove!

Just started using a Tour and am a little confused about what is happening with email. When I try to send test emails to understand what is happening I cant reproduce the craziness. Maybe someone can shed some light on these questions.
  • Outlook on my computer receives email from my POP account (remove messages from server after download).
  • On the BB BIS page I have the account setup as IMAP and "Sync deleted items checked"
  • On the BB I have "Wireless reconsile" = ON
    "On conflict" = Mailbox wins
    "Display new message indicator" = YES

While out if I receive a message on the BB and choose "delete on mailbox and handheld" and then check Outlook when I return the message wont be received by Outlook since it has been deleted from the server (so far so good, no problem).

While home if I receive messages in Outlook (now they are removed from the POP server) and then check my BB it still says I have X number of new unread messages (the ones I have dealt with in Outlook). So I have to go through and "read" or delete the messages to clear the flag so I can tell what is new when I go out again.

Shouldn't the BB see that the messages have been removed from Outlook and remove them from the BB?

Other times (and I cant reproduce it to explain better) there will be a message on my BB. I will receive it in Outlook and delete it from Outlook, but want it on my BB as reference. When I check back later that day it is gone. This would appear to be contrary to the point I made above.

The message indicator light is erratic. Sometimes it is not blinking, but I check the BB and I do have new messages. The other night I thought I saw it blinking (while charging) and the next morning it wasnt blinking anymore (I still had the same new messages). I am using the PW timeout feature and originally thought the light wasnt kicking in when locked, but there are times when it is locked and it is blinking.

Very confused.
