How to set up NON-Synced Gmail on Mobile and PC devices.

NOTE: Usually if you automatically set up your email account settings on both mobile phones and PCs, these days they usually configure them in IMAP to sync the account on multiple devices at the same time. For example . . .

If you delete an email from your mobile device it also automatically deletes that email from your PC as well - - - and vice versa - - - if you delete that email from your computer, it will also disappear from your mobile phone too. I didn't know that, and so I lost some important emails (stupid me).

But I found a way to set up a Gmail account on both devices (Android and PC -- maybe Mac and iPHone too) that allows you to delete emails on your mobile phone (to clear all the clutter) while also keeping copies archived on the server to later download to your PC to better sort and save until they're also deleted from the hard drive on your computer.

I learned all this after I temporarily lost my primary (DEFAULT) Gmail account and all access to my Google blog and YouTube accounts as well - - - and I was freaked out because (as a non-geek), I thought those accounts were lost forever.

But after almost 3 days and hours and hours of work, I got my account back and found a solution that many people have been asking about in forums that I've read . . .

How to SYNC incoming emails on 2 devices -- but not delete emails on your server/computer after deleting them from your mobile device.

(My PC uses WINDOWS LIVE 2012 for email, part of the Windows Essentials in Windows 7*, and Google says this is a less secure** than your new Android phone. More below.)

BELOW: Setting up a Gmail account on an Android mobile phone and PC using both POP and IMAP settings.

STEP ONE: First you'll have to log in to the Gmail website to "enable less secure apps" to allow your Google account to work in the POP/IMAP server mode in both devices. You will get a notice from Gmail saying:

"You recently changed your security settings so that your Google Account is no longer protected by modern security standards. Please be aware that it is now easier for an attacker to break into your account. You can make your account safer again by undoing this change here, then switching to apps made by Google such as Gmail to access your account."

STEP TWO: After that, you will also have to log in to your Gmail account at their website -- and near the top right side of the page, click on the "gear" and click on "Settings" as seen below.

Gmail POP-IMAP-settings

On the next page you see, click on FORWARDING AND POP/IMAP to make these server settings that are seen in screen shot below (click on the small image to enlarge for much greater detail.)

STEP THREE: Configure your email settings in the email program on your computer like they are shown in the images below. Gmail's explanations in the links on that page for the settings were very confusing for me, so I thought the screenshots of my actual settings could better explain. They are the current settings of my Gmail account on my PC to show you EXACTLY how to use a Gmail account on both your Android and PC without syncing and losing access to your Gmail , Blogspot and Youtube accounts at Google --- and NOT having your emails automatically deleted from your server or your PC's hard drive whenever you delete them from your mobile phone.

FYI: Seen below is all I could see on my phone for Gmail settings (which were configured automatically when I added a new Gmail account to my phone.)

Now I can open my mobile phone and download any messages I might receive, and delete the ones I've read or skipped, but yet still have them downloaded on my computer later at home when I open my email program (because they are still left on the server); and any new incoming messages will still go to both devices.


* You can use Windows Live Mail 2012 with any standard email service. However, Microsoft moved all its own email services (Office 365, Hotmail, Live Mail, MSN Mail, Outlook.com etc) to a single codebase at Outlook.com. And Windows Live Mail 2012 does not support the new APIs (applications programming interfaces) required to provide full synchronisation with Outlook.com. Microsoft could update Windows Live Mail 2012, but instead, it has asked users to switch to a different email program.

** I'm no expert, so I don't how "enable less secure apps" affects your email's security. Is it less secure on your PC or mobile phone or both? And Why? I've always used firewalls, anti-virus, etc. on my computer --- but am I now somehow more susceptible to hacks with Gmail because I changed that setting to use this account with both devices? Bfore I began using an Android, I was never informed that using Gmail on my PC was "enabling less secure apps".

Turns Out, Trump was Wiretapped

This week at a House hearing FBI director James Comey said the FBI has investigated Russian ties to Trump's team since last July, but he wouldn't say if leaks from our intelligence agencies (who claim they never wiretapped Trump) were being investigated.

It doesn't take a genius to connect the dots. Obama's administration colluded to sabotage Trump during the campaign, but Trump won the general election anyway. Now they are all colluding to destroy Trump's presidency.

Trump had tweeted that Obama wire-tapped his phone — which is mostly true, if you don't parse words. Prior to 2005, most people still used landline phones, not cellphones or smartphones — so telephones were "wire-tapped".

A NSA control room

Electronic surveillance is the monitoring of a home, business, or individual using a variety of devices such as CCTV, wiretapping, GPS, cameras, digital video equipment, and other electronic, digital, and audio-visual means. (These days, the NSA "wiretaps" the entire world!)

Obama's intelligence agency (with or without Obama's direct orders) used electronic surveillance on Trump and his transition team, and then distributed the collected data to other intelligence agencies (which was an Obama change in policy just prior to his leaving office) without masking (redacting/hiding) any of the names.

And then someone (maybe high up in the INTEL community) leaked portions of the surveillance transcripts to the media. The New York Times/Washington Post is often used — while CNN and NBC also work very closely with the Democrats, and colluded with Hillary Clinton during the primary and general campaigns (Why Trump calls them fake news).

The leaking of names to the media was how Trump's National Security advisor Mike Flynn was called out, and why he later had to resign for not being forthright with Vice President Pence regarding his LEGAL contact with the Russian ambassador.

The heads of Obama's intelligence agencies (Deep State: NSA, CIA, etc.) who, like Obama, publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton during the campaigns — and they all denied ever "tapping" Trump or Trump Tower. (Former head of the NSA James Clapper is on the record for being a known liar, so why should we believe him now?)

But last Monday FBI director James Comey said the FBI had been investigating Trump and his team for any collusion with the Russian government since July *. This was after Trump had already won the GOP nomination during the political conventions --> which was right after Bill Clinton had just met James Comey's boss (Attorney General Loretta Lynch) on the tarmac --> which was just prior to Hillary Clinton's fake interrogation (AKA "interview") at FBI headquarters.

Yesterday House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes said that members of the intelligence community "incidentally collected" communications from the Trump transition team during legal surveillance operations (obtained by a FISA warrant from a judge) of foreign targets, but that none of the reports Nunes had read had ever mentioned Russia --- and that surveillance transcripts were widely distributed without redacting any names.

QUESTIONS:

  1. Who or what first triggered the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign and the possibility it colluded with the Russians to affect the election? What evidence or suspicions did the FBI have?
  2. Did President Obama and/or Hillary Clinton and/or other Democratic operatives and politicians (like Senator Harry Reid) and/or any members of the liberal media know about this ongoing FBI investigation either before or after the general election?
  3. Is it possible that President Obama could have had candidate Trump (or members of his campaign) put under surveillance by any of the U.S. intelligence agencies (or foreign intelligence agencies) during the campaign without any of the legal requirements such as warrants and court approvals (FISAs)?
  4. Could this surveillance have been done covertly by one intelligence agency (such as NSA or CIA) without leaving any evidence to be discovered by another intelligence agency (such as the FBI) and then later had leaked contents to the liberal media?
  5. If Obama or former intelligence heads under Obama claim Trump or his team was never illegally put under surveillance, does their denial make it true?

Trump's Immigrant Ban vs. FDR's Internment Camps

Trump and FDR

After the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese in 1941 (when the U.S. population was 131 million) FDR's Executive Order 9066 sent 70,000 Japanese-American citizens to internment camps. It was legal then and it would still be legal today in 2017 (if so ordered).

Is there a war on White people in the US?

Or more specifically, on White working-class men? Or is it just a war on all White men who didn't vote for Hillary Clinton?

Or are all White people in the U.S. being subjected to reverse racism?

Make America Great Again (with Fair Trade)

It's not a lack of a skills, it's a lack of jobs. Eventually robots will do it all; but in the mean time, let's stop offshoring our best jobs to foreign countries, or giving jobs (that Americans want to do) to foreign workers.

Trump's Evolution on the Federal Minimum Wage

Last summer during the Democratic convention (when Hillary Clinton "won" the nomination), in his speech Senator Bernie Sanders said Donald Trump believes that States have the right to lower the minimum wage. But Trump never really advocated for States to LOWER the minimum wage, but only that they should decide if it should go higher than it currently stands. According to Trump's last statement on the subject, he actually thought the U.S. should have "at least" a $10 federal minimum wage.

Baby Boomers not to Blame for lack of Jobs

Baby Boomers are not to blame for the dramatic rise in the number of people "not in the labor force". Retirees and those on disability are making for a smaller and smaller share (on a monthly basis) as to the number of people "dropping out" of the labor force.

How can Trump raise wages?

Only unions and laws can raise wages, because employers won't — not unless they're forced to.

CNN's anti-Trump and anti-American Propaganda

President Obama and other Clinton supporters — including their media/propaganda organizations (CNN, owned by Time Warner; and MSNBC, owned by Comcast) are trying to blame "fake news" websites for spreading false and misleading information about Queen Hillary Clinton — and that's why Donald Trump won the election.
