I have a web domain and I pull my email from the mail server at that domain. I use MS Outlook on my PC. One of the setup options is to sync email with Outlook. But I don't always have my PC turned on, so it seems like a better idea to pull directly from the POP3. That way I will still be able to get my email on my phone when my PC is turned off.
I could set up an email forwarder to a different web address on my domain and pull the email from that account. But I've found that gmail does a better job at filtering spam mail, so I instead set up a forwarder to a gmail account, and I'm pulling messages to my Storm from the gmail. But I'm having 2 problems:
1) Any replies that I send from my Storm have the gmail email address as my "Reply to" address. I want people to reply to my standard website domain email address.
2) The IMAP sync doesn't remove messages from my Storm when I delete them from gmail. So I have to go through and delete the messages three times under my current setup... once from Outlook, once from my gmail account, and again on the Storm. I don't frequently do this, so the messages build up in all three places.
I'd like to be able to delete one time at one location and my PC and my phone synchronize to keep only the messages that I haven't deleted. The easiest place to delete messages is in Outlook... it takes a delete/confirm delete 2-step process to delete messages on the phone.
How do you have your email setup on your phone? Thanks in advance for your help.
I can't help with a three way sync in your setup (POP3 can't do it and I don't know if your current email host supports IMAP - many don't).
If you like gmail, you could ditch your current setup and change your domain's email over to a gmail business account. Your domain's email is attached to a gmail account transparently; your reply-to would be appropriate. And Google has a variety of mobile tools to help.
Not BES, but not too bad, either.
