    Is there an easy way to purge deleted items?

    Advertisement



    I have 4 email accounts and I find it tedious and just a little annoying to have to go to options, then to email reconciliation, and then proceede to purge each account individually. Is there a faster way?
    Life is like a sewer. What you get out of it depends on what you put into it.

    Skip that is very true..... I keep my in box on my computer cleaner than my BB. This would not work for some people... I also don't use outlook so there is no sync issue for me...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ check you server they are still there. I always chose the "Delete from handheld and server" option but if I don't purge them they still show up. For most this isn't a problem but I use my BB as a modem and the reconciluation with outlook takes forever.

    ahhhhhhhhh ok I don't have it forwarded from my outlook... that might be the issue... now are you sure this isn't BES? cause I can see that being the problem. With BIS, I have never had a problem.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~mmmmmm good question. I really don't know. I assumed I was on BIS cause I am not on a company phone/service. I guess I will have to call and findout. But what about Yahoo mail. It has the same problem, and I don't use outlook for that.

    ok if you don't use corporate mail you are BIS, yahoo deletes no problem, so its gotta be something with outlook.. ya know I was just thinking... outlook isn't really where the email is coming from so that is the problem. It is coming from an ISP that is just routed there. Therefore when you delete from mailbox and handheld it is just deleting it from those specific isp's.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the only ones that were gone were the the ones I had deleted earlier today and had just purged. When I checked earlier the ones I had deleted but not purged were still there.

    that has got to be an outlook thing. I use thunderbird and they delete. I am not to fond of outlook. Is there an option in there for "remote" email? or something of the sort... I really wish I could help a bit more. Lemme do some research for you. What version of outlook are you using?
