Why is it that imap email does not work properly in the z10 but it does work perfectly in the playbook? What is the difference?

Not sure I understand. What about IMAP is not working with the Z10?

I have the exact same issue on my 9930. Only the POP accounts delete the messages on the server. So it's not the phone itself. I unfortunately do not have an answer as to why this is happening in general. Has to do with IMAP but I would love to figure out why myself.

Is this with a gmail account? If so, instead of deleting it, try filing it to the trash folder.

IMAP is a copy of the emails in your POP mailbox, you should be able to select delete on handheld, or delete on mailbox and handheld. Look in your email options.

It doesn't work exactly the same on Gmail, and the options are different in BB10.

IMAP most certainly does delete on server, but is not configurable to keep on server when deleting from a Z10. On the Z10, when you delete e-mail in a Gmail account, the option to delete /archive or file can be configured within the Gmail web client.

Deleting messages from google using IMAP is slightly different. You need to log into your gmail account on your PC. Go into settings, select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab. There are a series of check boxes under IMAP Access.

Enable IMAP: Check
When I mark a messsage in IMAP as deleted:
Auto-Expunge off - Wait for the client to update the server: Check

When a message is marked as deleted and expunged from the last visible IMAP folder:
Move the message to the Trash: Check

Save these new settings and now when you delete on you Z10, the emails will be deleted from gmail. By default gmail just re-labels deleted emails and keeps them in the archive.

Am I right in saying if you set up a Google account via Google(IMAP) it will include the calendar and if you set it up via IMAP you just get the email?

Well, the IMAP is not as standardised (yet) as POP there are lots of implementations. It already starts with the folder management.
It very much depends on your providers preferences.
And not every client covers all the different possible setups on IMAP.

No, there is a standard.

RFC 3501 - INTERNET MESSAGE ACCESS PROTOCOL - VERSION 4rev1

Without RFC I doubt we would have seen any official mail server implementation of the protocol.

In specific older clients struggle with modern implementations/interpretations like Google's.

Should have mentioned that you can adjust your Google mailbox behaviour to your client. Hence "modern".
