    Hi all, first time post so forgive me if posted in the wrong area.

    I purchased a 9720 yesterday, after owning a windows 8 phone for a few months. The proper keyboard is already proving so much easier to use for managing my work emails (I get a couple of hundred a day!!). I have noticed one annoyance though and that is the marking of emails as read or unread.

    On my previous phones, a Nokia and an Iphone, if i read an email on any individual device (phone, tablet, pc) it would mark it as read on all of them. Im finding that if i read an email on my ipad or pc it is still flashing as unread on my BB. This is becoming annoying already as I am having to keep double checking email.

    Is this something I will have to live with or can it be fixed? I was under the impression that if i used IMAP rather than POP for email then it syncs the reading state over my devices. I cannot find how to make the email to be IMAP though. I enter my email user name and password and it auto sets it up.

    Any pointers would be very welcome.

    Many thanks
    Carl.

    Hi Carl,

    Welcome to the CrackBerry forums! We can get this sorted out for you. The thing I love most about my BlackBerry is how it's a virtual extension of my office - everything is mirrored - messages read at my desk and marked as read on my device and vice-versa.

    What's your email provider? We can probably dig up the settings for you and run you through a "manual" account setup.

    Many thanks for the quick reply.

    My business emails are running through domain.live.com, i use hotmail servers to manage emails for me@mybusiness.com (i do that to reduce spam). I know on my pc I used m.hotmail.com as the server but cannot find where to pop this on the BB.

    Thanks again.
    Carl

    This is not something that I have really thought about but also a problem that I have on my personal email with my wife on Aol, it would certainly be interesting to see if there is a particular setting that will enable email status to be mirrored across devices.

    Also, welcome to the 9720 club. Had mine 3 days (came from a 9320) but its great. Although similar, but better :-)
