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.

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 ...

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.

Tap "Reading", and then find the "External content" section....

There does indeed not appear to be any sharing nor saving options in Microsoft’s PDF Reader application. However, every PDF you open with it is stored for some period in the application itself. If you open the PDF Reader application on it’s own you will see all the PDFs that you have recently opened with it. Exactly how this work and for how long they are ...

It has mostly to do with how Mobile Networks work. Each connection results in the cellular radio being on for 10-15 seconds after the transaction. If you get over 12 e-mails an hour - polling every 5 minutes is more efficient than push. However, if you only get 1-2 e-mails an hour, push is more efficient. I blogged on this (with some math to corroborate). ...

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 ...

I have no experience with Windows Phone 8 myself yet, but the Windows Phone 7 IMAP4 settings only include checkboxes for "Require SSL" (one for incoming, one for outgoing email), and no port number settings. This could mean that just a fixed port number is possible, but I have not tried anything in this regard, so you might be able to use "host:port" syntax ...

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 ...

It is not possible to remove the Re: from the reply email subject unless he does it manually every time. The Re: is inserted in a lot of mail programs so this is not specific to windows phone. It sounds to me like this is a problem with Gmail not grouping the emails correctly rather than windows phone doing something wrong.
