Just use the GMail app and not the Email app. You can select what email to send from -- it shows all the addresses you have set up in GMail -- and has a surprising number of GMail's features for a mobile app. It does go through GMail's servers and you will have your archive. I don't think you can set up and manage POP accounts from it, but if you're not ...

The default settings by K9 have at least two mistakes: use imap.gmail.com instead of mail.gmail.com. use full emails for usernames such as forname.surname@myFirm.com, not just forname.surname. Example settings Incoming Email settings Username: forname.surname@myFirm.com Password: correct IMAP server: ...

Open Email. Enter your email credentials (the address and the password). Choose Manual setup. Choose IMAP. Enter server settings.

Default email app on my G2 supports IMAP, including encryption. I personally use K-9, which is free.

There are three ways to access Gmail in Android: Setup an POP/IMAP account using Email app. This is not recommended, since you lose many of Gmails' unique feature. Use the Browser and Gmail's mobile view. This is not recommended, since you don't get mail notifications. Setup Gmail account in the Gmail app. This is the preferred way of using Gmail on ...

You need to go into the Mail application and set up an account through there. The Accounts area is for syncing accounts for the phone (like your Gmail address).

There are email replacement apps, but unfortunately the few that act similar to HTC Mail will cost money. Touchdown by Nitrodesk: Touchdown is my preferred email replacement as I use the exchange functionality, and imap protocol. It can tie into most major email services, and also offers some premium features for business users. Enhanced Email: A more ...

Unbelievably this bug is still outstanding as of Android 4.0.4. http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1029 The only fix for this is to use a different email app. Most people end up switching to GMail. Not happy. I miss my Nokia N900.

Do you use GMail? Or the default "E-Mail App"? Which device you own (Samsung has another than stock google). But I remember, that both of them support IMAP.

I think I've finally solved this one by using some of the folder settings in K9. In Settings --> Account Settings --> Fetching Mail, I set Poll Folders and Push Folders to "Only First Class Folders", and this seems to have done the job. To be honest, I'm not sure what these settings mean exactly, but I'll live with that.

For the incoming username, you need to use your complete email address ("myName@firm.com"), not just the account username ("myName").

There are standards for this, as in the XLIST command for IMAP, which has recently been superseded by the Special-Use extension of the IMAP LIST command. Gmail supports these, and Fastmail, and mail clients like Thunderbird and Opera, and even Outlook 2013 apparently. The problem with the Android Mail app (at least for me) is that it doesn't understand these ...

I think there is no need to set those settings in the Email app. You only need to set them in e-mail clients where you are getting duplicate copies of the email, provided those clients have a way of setting those settings. If you notice in the image below (from the desktop GMail web app), there is a Sent Mail and an [Imap]/Sent folder. The Sent Mail folder ...

Unfortunately, the Stock Android Email app has the IMAP folder names hard-coded in the application, they cannot be changed by the user. The app expects the folders to have the following names: Inbox Outbox Drafts Trash Sent Junk If your IMAP server uses different names, they are not properly synchronized with the Email app. There are two solutions to ...

As far as I can tell, no, there is not a way to configure where sent mail is placed using the IMAP email account on the Galaxy S III. There may be a 3rd party email app that can do this, but not the stock one on the S III. As suggested in the comments K-9 Mail does what you want.

As with IMAP mails are stored centrally on the server, you can see all mails from all IMAP clients. You can automatically store sent mails to a "Sent" folder (instead of only send them and not storing them), which is configured on a per-client basis. I cannot tell for your desktop clients how to do this, but with K9 you can select the folder in Menu → ...

The Couldn't open connection to server happened to me as well on IMAP Email set-up, then I noticed that the default IMAP server was imap.mydomain.com. So I made the following changes and it started working: Incoming: IMAP Server: mail.mydomain.com Outgoing: Security type: SSL/TLS (Accept all certificates) - If I didn't change to this Security type it ...

Ok, I tried restarting the IMAP server with no luck and then I decided to try a second factory reset, not that I was expecting it to work but apparently something changed because suddenly it worked and I have no idea why. Ah, the magic of user-friendliness.

You need to enable IMAP on your account. See Google Help Page here: http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=77695

Android doesn't do that (nor do iOS and others). IMHO it's not smart to automatically try to do such a thing. It's just a coincidence that your credentials are the same for both those very different things. Exchange credentials and VPN credentials should really be not the same to begin with (for obvious security reasons).

You change the "Leave a copy on the server" option on the Android mail client.

Email APP If you are referring to the APP named "Email", you don't have to make any adjustments, the subscription process is fully automated, I just test. Ps: No options available on this application for that type of settings, perhaps the reason as to why its fully automated and by default in sync. Gmail APP If you are referring to the Gmail APP, you ...

There are mail headers for threading (in particular I'm thinking of References: and In-Reply-To:), why not use one of those rather than trying to overload something else?


1

Sounds like it's just not copying sent messageinto your mailbox at all, only keeping them locally. I would assume that's just a shortcoming of the app and you'd need to use a different one that supports that feature. The default client is very basic and buggy. Have you considered using Gmail? You can configure it (through the web) to get mail from an ...

I use moxier mail, works much better and worth the money, it syncs all the exchange stuff and even provides access to the GAL for contact lookups, plus the widget can display the configured synced folders only. Good stuff. Plus you can continue to use the pattern unlock.

I'm afraid this is not possible with HTC Email application. This email app sync the "Inbox" folder automatically, but every other folder you have is not synced, the app gets all mail in the folder when you enter that folder to see what's inside. You have the option to use K9Mail, a free e-mail client for Android which supposedly has support for push mail ...

I would get back in touch with your email provider's tech support. We know that your phone and network are working correctly (your other accounts work fine) and that your phone's apps are working correctly (you found no difference with K9). That means it's the IMAP connection you're trying to make with this particular server. Do they have any backup ...

I would suggest trying K-9 Mail, like Mr. Buster already said. It's IMAP support is better than the stock app's. For me, it receives my emails almost faster than Thunderbird on my desktop due to PUSH support.


1

Check that you have correct date time settings both in the phone and in the server, perhaps you have set wrong timezone or set an incorrect AM/PM, and this somehow confuses the mail client about which messages to get.


1

I'd recommend switching to K-9 Mail if the default Email app can't handle this. In K-9 Mail, once you've set up your account, long-press it and select Account settings -> Folders. On this page you can change the Drafts folder, Sent folder, Spam folder and Trash folder to your preferred ones.
