I decided to do a bit more testing on a Nokia Lumia 800 running the 12072 firmware. I did a basic test using the Nokia battery diagnostics application. I found that when using as items arrive the battery discharge would wildly fluctuate between 80-420 mA, with long periods of around 280 mA. Changing to check hourly the discharge was reasonably calm at ...

You're only able to attach pictures to e-mails from the e-mail application. Consider using a more appropriate collaboration tool for documents, instead of sending them per email, such as OneDrive or Office 365. For Office documents, open the documents on the phone, and press share in the the application-bar menu. This allows you to share a document using ...

This is not possible. The choice of Microsoft not to support this is security. If you download html or images automatically the sender could see if you read the message for example by checking if you downloaded the image. Hotmail supports whitelisting senders. would be great if you could also do this on your Windows Phone device but that's currently not ...

Tapping the sync (refresh) icon in the Email app should force all items to sync.

The Windows Phone OS has been built from the ground up to manage power in a newer, unique way. For one, like you mentioned, a push notification system. This system is designed to circumvent the old way of having to expend power by polling a server.. especially since most of the time there wasn't anything new there. However, not all services offer it at this ...

Based on my own experiences I have found the following: Windows 8: IMAP only SSL SMTP over STARTTLS Windows Phone 8: IMAP over STARTTLS SMTP only SSL Incredibly inconvenient (for server administrators) and frankly astonishingly stupid and inconsistent. I would have believed the two clients shared at least some code in between them. PS: I have not ...

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 ...

Email inboxes show up in the app list. So you can simply find your inbox there, long-press (press and hold) on it until a context menu pops up, then select "pin to start".

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.

The times are driven by the type of account -- those that support direct push (such as Hotmail, Gmail, Exchange, etc.) get the option to download items "as they arrive". Older style mail servers using the POP3 protocol do not get this option, and instead get the "every 2 hours" option.

I've tested this a while back and this was what I observed. Automatic synchronization only takes place with the Inbox. Any folders you have are not synchronized automatically. This will include your drafts folder. To check if you have any new e-mails in any folder (including the draft folder), from the Windows Phone inbox options> tap folders > if required ...

The Messaging hub on the Windows Phone can't do this, perhaps in another iteration in the future it could come to existence but until then I don't see any MS way at doing it. When I looked through the Marketplace using several terms like mail, email or e-mail and then combining them with warning, alert or reminder I didn't came across any applications that ...

I found this and this which explains how the as items arrive option works. Here is some information pieced together from these links. When you setup an Exchange ActiveSync account, the default synchronization mode may be Direct Push. With Direct Push, the device maintains an open connection so that information is delivered to the device as it becomes ...

If your email provider offers POP3/SMTP or IMAP/SMTP server endpoints, then you can use them. One of Windows Phone's strengths is the ability for the enterprise to enforce policies. This is the same type of policy that the admin would enforce for laptops and other business assets. I would ask your IT department what they offer in terms of access.

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. In the settings you cannot only set the interval at which the account should be synced (every 30 or 60 minutes for example) but also from which moment on the mail should be retrieved. For example: from the past 3 or 7 days, last ...

To view the entire archive of your mail, you can set the sync settings of an email account to "download email from" "anytime".

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.

Short version: Outlook Mail -> Settings -> Reading -> External content -> "Automatically download..." option. Enter Outlook Mail (opening any account's inbox or other pinned folder from Start screen or app list will work). Tap the three dots in the bottom right, and select "Settings" from the menu. Tap "Reading", and then find the "External content" section....

I use a workaround for that. I also have a GMail account, which I use for stuff like internet forums reply notifications and corporate spam which I have actually signed up for. Instead of adding this low-priority email account as a separate inbox, I forward the email to my main Exchange account on Office 365, where email with that To: address is filed into ...

I configured by Windows Phone to work with my Pobox.com address, as follows: Configure my Pobox.com inbox to forward to one of the free publicly available IMAP services. I chose GMX instead of Gmail, because GMX allows you to disable spam filtering completely. This is desirable because Pobox.com already has good, configurable spam filtering. Configure my ...

As far as I know there is no option to automatically do that for you. This to prevent data usage when you get email with big image files in it.

You should be able to download the message following these steps: Tap the attachment and let the error message appear. Tap the BACK button Tap the Synchronize botton (the one with arrows) Return to the message - the attachment should be downloaded and available now. Works with Exchange 2007 and 2010.
