      Sky mail on mobile

      Before the switch to Google I was able to download my mail to my PC and also to my phone. Now I can only download mail to my phone if it hasn't already been picked up by my PC.

      I've not changed any settings on my PC (except for the obvious server name and user name), the server settings are to "Leave messages on server".

      On the website I have POP download set to "When messages are accessed with POP keep Sky's copy in the Inbox".

      If I download the e-mail to my phone first it is still on the server when I use my PC, but not the other way around. Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

      Hi, you need to use recent mode - see the tips and solutions page (in my signature) for the full setup.

      Nope, that's no good. The mail client on my PC checks for new mail automatically every 2 minutes. With that setting, and the amount of e-mails I receive, I'll get hundreds of e-mails downloading every couple of minutes. Totally impractical.

      What I don't understand is that it works fine when I download the mail to my mobile first. It is still there for the PC to get when I load the client, but not the other way around and it always worked before.

      No you misunderstand. The first time you do it you'll get all the mail but subsequent checks only get the new stuff.

      It works perfectly. Apologies for not making it clearer in the instructions.

      Oh I see, so it does, thanks! Have you changed the instructions to make it clearer because I've just checked them again and it seems pretty obvious to me now. If they are the same then my apologies for being an idiot and not understanding what was written in front of me.

      Yup, I updated them after re-reading my cack-handed job of explaining it.
