Solved How to delete email from laptop and iPad at the same time?

I am trying to delete emails from an iPad and a laptop. I deleted emails from the iPad but it did not delete them from the laptop. I then reversed the procedure and deleted email from the laptop but it did delete them from the iPad. Is there a way I can deleted emails from both the iPad and the laptop at the same time?

Thank you,
Brian W

✔ Best Answer
If the email account is using IMAP not POP3 then “usually” if a change is made on content in the n/sent boxes on one device, is mirrored on any device which accesses that account.

So delete an email on the iPhone and it will be deleted from the iPad too; again as long as the email accounts on either/both devices are set up using IMAP not POP3.

Using POP3 not IMAP, changes on one device are not mirrored on the other (or any computer either).
