Is your email account POP3 or IMAP? If POP3, does your provider
support IMAP? An IMAP account will do what you want, POP3 does
The problem you have and the resolution are a function of the type of
email account you are using and not the device you connect with. Set
your email up as IMAP (if possible) and your problem will go away.
If you are using a POP3 account and cannot set it up as IMAP because
the provider does not offer IMAP, consider setting that account to
automatically forward all email to an IMAP account (Gmail is one, there
are many others) and work from the IMAP account. You should set the
POP3 account to automatically delete the emails after forwarding.
