my friend just got an iPhone and he has a comcast.net email addr.
he uses outlook on his computers to view his emails
if you login to his email accnt from comcast's website there are no emails in his account.
i assume outlook is taking them from comcasts server then putting the emails on its own server???
so now that he tried to set up his email account on his iphone he only gets about 10% of incoming emails...(on the phone)
i've searched through outlooks options and from what i can tell it IS set up to NOT delete messages on the comcast server, but im not certain.

end result, i'd like to help him get his emails on his iphone

plz help OT :hs:

He's better off sending the mail to a gmail account (you can probably set it to forward at Comcast's servers), then setup both the iphone and outlook to fetch it from Gmail via IMAP.

You can do what you suggest, but that's not the way I would go.
