    Just got the latest iPad Mini 3. If I delete an email on my iPad, it doesn't come in on my computer (Mac Mini 2009). Is there an incoming mail setting that allows you to select "Never" for "Delete from server"?

    On my iPhone 5, I can delete emails and they will still come in on my computer. The setting is located here:
    Settings > (my email account name) > Advanced > INCOMING MAIL SETTINGS Delete from server

    Thanks so much!:)

    Sounds like you have a POP account? Who's your email provider. There may be a setting for that at the provider. Better yet, you might be able to switch it to an IMAP account.
