    As my user name indicates, I'm not completely across this technology. Recently purchased iphone and all going smoothly except this morning when I checked my email on iphone it downloaded no problem..but later when I switched my computer on, those same emails did not load and appear in the outlook account. First time this has happened. Normally, so long as I don't delete them on iphone, later they will download to outlook (this is how I want it). Have checked in phone that the setting 'delete from server' is switched to never. (it is as always has been. Help please?

    Mail - iPhone/computer

    I am having the same issues -- that "some" emails do not load into my computer after I have viewed on my iPhone. Totally inconsistent, which makes troubleshooting really hard. It appeared to start (about a month ago) after I did the most recent iPhone OS upgrade. I have an original iPhone, & on Mac OS 10.4.11, using Mac Mail. My mail server is Google Apps.

    Are you using IMAP or POP to access the mail server?

    iPhone/Mail issues

    I am using POP. It's been suggested I switch to IMAP - not sure ..... it's still happening sporadically. I am wondering if it's something to do with gmail/Google apps mail. Google apps mail does not email back to you messages that you send to a group (such as Yahoo groups). Some gmail addressed emails don't get to my computer (after downloading to the phone) - some do ...... very odd ..... The glitch started happening after recent Phone OS upgrade ....
