    E-mail of Epic 4G is making me MAD!, Help please... =(

    Hi Android Forum:

    I'm a newbie in this Op.Sist. of "Android" don't have much time with my phone (Epic 4G) either & it seems I dont understand very well the "E-mail Settings" yet...

    I want my E-mail to refresh each half hr (:30) BUT the problem is that in the 1st half hr I delete (example) 10 of them & in the 2nd :30 min's the same 10 I deleted BEFORE COMES BACK TO WARN ME and to tell the truth is making me mad already!

    I can't put it to vibrate (or in silence) because obviously I don't hear it and I need it to work without fail...

    Can I make this cellphone to refresh ONLY recent E-mails & delete them (if I hit the delete button) as I read them in the Internet too???
    Thks in advance!

    If you don't mind me asking, which provider is your email account with? Most email accounts have to be setup as IMAP to have the functionality you're talking about. With IMAP you can delete a message off your device and have it also delete it out of your webmail account simultaneously. IMAP also will push instant notification of email, and if you've read a message on your device... it will also show as read on your other accounts.

    If you can tell us what company its with and what device you're using, we can help you set it up how you like it.

    Ok, i'm with Sprint & my webmail is from Hotmail... (The Epic 4G make me do a Gmail account to use the market but I don't think I got problems in that 1). Where do I found this "IMAP" you're talking about?
    (BTW, Thks for the reply) :-)

    Try this:

    How to Add Hotmail IMAP in Android | KhimHoe.Net

    On IMAP, you can't set a time when it checks for new messages because as soon as you get a message it's pushed to your phone. It's almost instantaneous.

    Is there another way to do it?, because I'm folowing the instructions (Word by Word) & doesn't let me =(... it says: "Unable to connect server".

    I've deleted the account to do it like to have it for the 1st time and I can't even connect it, it only appear on "POP" format.

    Log into your Gmail from your phone. Tap your menu and go to settings. Click add account and then enter your email you want synchronized.
