  • Prevent Message Deletion through Exchange ActiveSync

    Windows Server 2003 SP2
    Exhange Server 2003 SP2 Standard
    Motorola Q

    When using Exchange ActiveSync is there a method to prevent messages deleted on the phone from being deleted in the Mailbox on the server?

    We have a user that likes to delete all the messages on the phone when he is done with them but does not want them deleted on his "Laptop" (i.e. Exchange Mailbox).

    Not that I am aware of, and in any case, that would defy the logic of synchronizing your mailbox, wouldn't it?

      I would agree with you but that is not how this gentlemen feels. I do not like Wireless Sync from Verizon and was hoping that I could accomplish his needs in an easier fashion.

        Well then, you might want to tell them to use POP3, which will d/l all the new messages from the inbox (be sure to configure it to KEEP A COPY ON THE SERVER). But then you'll lose all the real ActiveSync capabilities.

          Just because someone wants to work in a certain way, doesn't mean that the technology will work in that way. I believe that Blackberry works in the same way. Handheld devices should be considered an extension of the live mailbox, where changes made on the device are reflected in the live mailbox data.
          As Daniel has already pointed out, you could use POP3 access, but the chances of data loss are quite high and you will have no method of wiping the device or blocking access to the email that has been downloaded in the event of the device being lost or stolen. Furthermore the device will mark all email read on the server, whether it has been read or not.
