It depends entirely on how you have set up POP3. If you have selected "leave a copy on the server" then yes most likely you can recover it - by going straight to the server. There is also an option to by going in to mail>menu>folders>[show more]>deleted items But that option I think you may have to set up. I would always recommend you use IMAP for ...

Windows phone 8.1 does not support this feature. Hence if you are using WP8.1 there is no way to attach a document in a reply. Only photos are supported. The only way to send a document via mail is to share it from Files app or from Office. But as you said it will create a new thread. With Windows10-Mobile it is now possible to attach a document in a reply....

It is not possible to delete the Microsoft account that was used to set up your phone. You will need to reset your phone and set it up again with another account. Which will lose all your apps, music, etc. Hopefully this problem will be fixed in Windows 10 for phones.

Can you change the settings yourself. If so, you can follow this guide: How to Set Up and Manage Email Sync on Windows Phone 8.

I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure that's not possible with the Windows Phone 8.1 email client. I just checked. Depending on your email provider, you may be able to go to their website on your phone and add it there. I was able to do this on my WP8.1 in Outlook.com, but I had to use the desktop version of the site.

I guess the easiest solution would be to have two separate contacts, one with you wifes maiden name and her e-mail address and one with her "nickname" and her phone number. You could try linking those contacts but I'm not sure how for example an incomming call would be announced - something to try out. If you're worried about loosing your phone, there are ...

Curiously this doesn't seem to be a "feature" yet. There is a proposal on the Windows Phone Uservoice Site you should check out (and vote for). The only way at the moment to get rid of those suggestions is doing a hard reset. Other things I've tried that don't work: Clearing temporary files Doing a soft reset of the phone

Google has no love for Windows Phone, and has decided to show this by turning off Exchange ActiveSync support for new devices (last I checked, it still worked for devices that had been set up before the cutoff, though... even though that was around two years ago). Because of this, MS changed the way that they connect to Gmail accounts for WP8.1. The new ...

Marking e-mails as junk is done by you e-mail provider (i.e. Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Fastmail, ...) and not by your phone. If you manually move e-mails outside the junk folder to your inbox folder for example, the spam engine running on your e-mail provider's servers should, after a time or two, understand that those e-mails are not spam and don't marking ...

(Assuming you're using WP 8.1) That error message comes from Google, not your phone. Apparently the way you connect your Google account to Windows Phone was changed in 8.1 - you no longer enter your username and password directly to your phone, but instead are redirected to https://accounts.google.com and asked to authorise your phone the same way you'd ...

This is a limitation with Windows Phone 8.1. I have updated to Windows 10 Mobile. Mail client (Outlook) with Windows 10 Mobile is able to send full size photos and other files too. It also supports many more features like text formatting, inset picture, etc.

The mail client in Windows 10 Mobile expects the tiles to have specific ids for the notifications to work - if you tap on the email account, bring up the menu via the ... button at the bottom of the screen, you'll see that it doesn't think the folder is pinned. If you re-pin it (and remove the old tile) you'll see that notifications will work once more.
