There are numerous discussions regarding the deletion of emails from Outlook on the computer when they are deleted from the iphone, mine being a 4s.  I have two email accounts set up on my iphone.  One setup in Other for my personal domain email account and the other is setup through Exchange for my business email that interacts with my Server.  True there is an Advanced setting for my personal email account but there is not an Advanced setting for my business email.  I have tried setting the Synch setting for my business email account on the iphone to 2 weeks.  Unfortunately the Push setting defaults to the Inbox and you cannot uncheck Inbox on the iphone.


There is no setting for my business email to tell it not to delete from the iphone.  I have actually had my iphone next to me deleted the email from my business Inbox on my iphone and watched it also delete from my Inbox in Outlook on the computer.


What do we do to stop business emails from being deleted in the Outlook Inbox when deleting them from the iphone?  Please advise of the correct settings and how to get to it when there is a business email set up on the iphone that is on an Exchange Server that when the email in the inbox on the iphone is deleted that it doesn't delete from the Inbox in Outlook on the computer.
