    I'm using my iPad to retrieve my email, not Hotmail or Gmail. It's an email account supplied by my service provider. When I retrieve my email, from my iPad, why is that when I go to my Outlook email on my laptop, email which I have already read days ago (on my ipad) still downloads in my Outlook? How can I fix it so that when I have downloaded and read my email on my iPad, then delete it,(from the trash bin) it goes off my service providers server so it's gone for good so I don't have to go to my Outlook mail and delete them from there?

    Do you have your mail account on your iPad set up as POP or IMAP. Does your ISP even support IMAP?

    This sould be in the iPad section, not the iPhone section.

    I think it depends, if you use POP it behaves different than if you use IMAP.
