I apologize if I’ve overlooked this topic in past discussions. I have an iPhone. I have a gmail account, however I do not use for mail. I use my local ISP( for email. My phone is set up with what they call gmail exchange. My question is: When I delete mail on my iPhone, how or what do I need to do to delete it from my desktop PC? I hope there is a simple fix. Thanks in advance.

The easiest way I know of is to use the inbox. You don’t need to give people your address, Gmail can ‘fetch’ your email, but using the Gmail universal inbox on all your devices automatically keeps them in sync.

See episode 5 of our weekly show “What Does This Button Do?” it was all about synchronizing email.

Also, here’s an article I wrote a while back: Use Gmail for one In-Box

Otherwise, you’d need to ask the folks at how to make their system synchronize.
