    Does anyone experiences issue with IMAP with over 1000 emails?
    I have 1780 emails but I never had issue on my iOS before 4.3.x came in.

    No matter what I do reset and restore. It always show today emails I recently received and it skip all the emails from yesterday and shows the first 45 oldest emails in my inbox.

    Email #1780 - Today 1:00pm
    Email #1779 - Today 11:00am
    Email #1778 - Today 7:00am

    (WHERE THE HECK these emails go between this period of time???)

    Email #45 - October 2009 - 3:00pm
    ...
    Email #5 - October 2009 - x:00pm
    Email #4 - October 2009 - x:00am
    Email #3 - September 2009 - x:00am
    Email #2 - September 2009 - x:00pm
    Email #1 - September 2009 - x:00am

    IMAP behavior can depend on your email provider. Which one is it?

    Thanks for the reply. I do understand it could be the provider but I found out it's the OS X Mail.app bug. When I use the Mail 5.0 to migrate emails to another account. It won't transfer properly; it will bug out the actual Received Date to Received Time when it arrives to the inbox. Confusing I know.

    The ordering of each emails end up showing the oldest first because the transfer was newest to oldest. Reserved ordering.

    I end up using Thunderbird to transfer my email back and fore again and it fixed it.

    I've already reported this to Apple OS X support team yesterday. Not my mail server (my own dedicated server), not iOS. It's Mail.app 5.0.
