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 ...
You don't mention which phone or Android version you're using. On my Motorola Droid (Android 2.2) the built-in E-mail application allows me to connect to my employers Exchange server. When I created the account, I had three options for connecting: POP3, IMAP, and Exchange. There are other e-mail clients out there that may also connect to Exchange.
This is not an issue of your email client. This is the way POP3 works. In Gingerbread's email client, you'd had set leave copy of email on server. So, your ICS email client is downloading all past emails from server. Unfortunately, POP3 doesn't allow selective downloads. Your mails are being fully downloaded (not just header) with attachments too. That's the ...
You could try K9 Mail. I use it for non-Exchange accounts and it works great, so I know it's a great email app in general. I believe it has the ability to connect to Exchange servers, too, so...there you go!
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 ...
The behavior you described is what I'd expect from an account that uses both IMAP and POP protocols. Your emails are deleted from the server when you open Outlook and sync over POP but when you sync your phone over IMAP it keeps the mails on the server. You can get the desired behavior by switching your outlook sync protocol to IMAP. This keeps the emails ...
You could give POP3 Refresh for Gmail app a try. It sounds like it does what you are looking for.
POP3 is meant to mark the server copy as read once it's been downloaded Completely. The default setting in the stock Email app is 2kb of the email is downloaded. If changed to one of the higher options, you risk completely downloading the email, and the server will mark it read at that point. (It's not a bug, it's a feature, see an old Superuser question): ...
If geffchang's answer didn't work, you can try this at a last resort. System setting > Apps > ALL > Email > Deactivate. However, this not only removes the account you wanted to remove but also all other accounts.
Are you really using POP3? It's a behaviour of IMAP... not POP3. If yes, it's certainly a bug. Better, use different email client like K9-mail.
You might consider adding your pop3 accounts to gmail anyway, but then turning off sync for gmail. That way, I assume, your phone won't automatically check your mail, but you'll still be able to retrieve new mail "by hand".
Does having the sync option enabled for an account literally mean that the account will remain synced with the mail server - regardless of type? The Sync option means your device will connect to the server automatically at established intervals. If your device sees what is on the server or simply download mails depends on which kind of connection you use ...
I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS ISSUE (sorry for caps but I have been dealing with it for a while). I don't have a fix but I do have work around: hit the show pictures button at the top of the message and let all images render before deleting. I wish I had a permanent fix for you. I wonder if this happens on other phones and not just the Moto Droid?
