These are two separate issues of course.
I have never seen message disappear from my phone that I deleted off the server through the AT&T/Yahoo web interface, so it appears that ther is no reconcilliation there. With my Windows Mobile phone, I could delete a message via my PC, go to my phone, do a manual sync, and the message would be gone. With my Curve, if I delete a message via my PC, it will still be on my phone two days later. I never let it sit longer than that, but would think that if something were going to happen, it should by then.
On the other side, if I highlight a message on the phone, hit my Menu key, scroll down and select Delete, I get a box titled "Delete message?" with options, "On Mailbox & Hand...," "On Handheld," and "Cancel." After five minutes, if I check my email from my PC, the message is usually gone (over 95% of time), but not always. This may simply be an issue of network traffic and latency. I can accept that.
It is the first item that bugs me more, as I get well over 100 emails per day, and having to manually delete each of these from the phone is a pain in the tail! I would think that there'd be something I could do from the phone. If I have a message selected in my email account and click the Menu key, one of the items listed is "Reconcile Now," but it doesn't seem to do anything.
