    How can I cause my email folders to sync/purge/update/fetch new emails?

    Or do they just do it when they want to?

    I've seen 'reconcile' on menu but what does it do?

    You can't. Email is PUSHED. You can't "fetch" it or cause it to be pushed faster.

    I think all email is 'pushed', but there is usually a method of forcing/prompting that to happen - in case of Windows Mail it's called "sync" button, in case of Outlook it's called "send/rec" button, in case of hotmail i think it's called 'get mail' button

    What does BB 'reconcile' do?

    As already said, the emails are pushed, and you can do nothing about that. However, you can use the "Reconcile Now" in the email options, which will update the phone / outlook according to the sync settings you have selected.

    what will it 'update' or are we playing semantics now?

    i think i'd found the right button for 'updating' emails in my first post, 'reconcile'

    The "reconcile" function is used to reconcile deleted messages between the device and the email server for email services that support that function.

    You may not want to believe it, but I will say it one more time ..... THERE IS NO WAY TO FETCH EMAIL ON A BLACKBERRY.

    Can't be done.

    So it should sync message that have been deleted - should it also sync messages that have been read/unread?

    Neither work on mine so I'll have to assume it's not compatible with Live Mail
