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. 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 ...

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.

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.

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 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 ...

So I have struggled with this a few times; in the hope this helps someone else follow these steps. A couple of notes: These instructions include details for GMX mail, but it should help if you are having issues with receiving email on your Windows Phone Set up like this I have avoided most error messages including "there is a problem with the ...

My GMX account works with imap.gmx.com:993:1 as the incoming server. My user name is my email address (the primary one if you've set up aliases). Under "advanced settings" I've got "Require SSL for incoming email" checked.

This is indeed possible. I added my own CalDAV and CardDAV servers this way: Add a new Google account and enter some random account data. The login should fail. Reboot your phone (this is important!) Select the just added Google account and change the default IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV settings to your own ones (those from Yahoo). Save, activate and sync. ...

However if you only want to change the account name you can set up aliases linked to the original account using the control panel at https://account.live.com/names/Manage. Note that if you want to sign into your Windows Phone with one of these new aliases you ...

It's best to speak to your local firendly IT dept - they should have a policy as to when they would do something like wipe your phone. For example, where I work, a device would only be wiped if reported stolen to the IT dept (to protect intelectual property, etc.). It is my understaning that removing the Exchange account removes their ability to do this, too....

Pull uses less battery power as it checks for new email messages at a (specified) regular interval. Using "push" email however allows message to arrive on you device virtually instantly. In order for this to work, your phone needs to keep some form of constantly network connection online

The email app automatically tries to detect hyperlinks. Android and iPhones do this as well. There are instances where each of these incorrectly try to place a link where none belongs. I believe this is the case here.

The problem is the email client app sees the "inbox" folder and "All Mail" as 2 different folders. So you have turn off the syncing the "All Mail". Slide the menu on the bottom. Look for "folders" and select "show all Folders". Select "All Mail". Now if you slide the menu on the bottom, you will see an option "don't sync this folder". Hit that, and that ...
