iMessage App Doesn't Sync with iPhone iMessages

Is there a reason for this? If I'm sending and receiving from the same email on both my Mac and my iPhone, my messages don't sync. I thought that even if the Mac is turned off, once I reopen the iMessage app, all previous conversations should download and sync.

Do you have your cell phone number added into the Messages preferences on your Mac? If the number is not in your iMessage profile of your accounts linked to Messages, you may not get all of the ones from your phone, depending on how your phone is set up (i.e., what email or phone number your message defaults to as "coming from").

I am having the same issue on my iMac for a few days now. Let us know if you find a solution.

So I quit all my apps and restarted my Mac and that fixed it. I had to re-login to iMessage within the messages app after restarting but that got it.
