Why can't Shaw switch to IMAP mail? Even Telus offers that option if one really pushes for it.
For those of us who have several units, a computer, tablet and phone, we get emails in each and then have to physically delete them on each unit! Simply absurd. I don't want to use gmail, or any other email offer out there, but I am really tempted. Or look into Telus since I know of at least one person who had their email shifted to IMAP.
