View Full Version : IMAP emails keep reappearing in inbox (after delete or move)

This is extremely frustrating. Emails keep coming back regardless of if I move/delete them via my Mac or iPhone.

Most of the times a DELETE or MOVE via webmail stays deleted or moved.

Recently, I even have to delete/move some of them on both the iPhone and MAC.


I find the same thing happening with 3 GMAIL accounts as well as two accounts hosted by GoDaddy, so I'm guessing the problem in on the Apple side.

Some people have suggested I uncheck the "Use IDLE command if the server supports it" checkbox. I did, to no avail.

Any clues, pointers or suggestions?

The problem disappeared. Either GoDaddy did something or unchecking the IDLE parameter started working hours/days after I unchecked it...
