    There are several posts about this, but I am still confuses...

    I have two e-mail accounts on my Mail app- a comcast and a Gmail.
    The comcast e-mail allows me to delete a message on the phone but keep it on the server (I can still access it on my computer later).
    This is what I want.

    The Gmail, however, deletes it on the server when I delete it on the phone. I have tried going through settings into the "advanced" menu, but that's not working (from what I can gather, it's because I'm on an IMAP sever instead of POP.)

    I would really like to be able to delete messages on my phone but access them later on my computer.

    Any ideas?

    POP3 & IMAP can offer so many confusing options - you might need to 'experiment' a little w/ your account on Gmail - enter your account there and then go into 'Settings' and look @ the POP & IMAP options - there is a POP choice that will leave a copy of your inbox mail on the Gmail server - see what is checked in your settings - good luck! :)
