    I have a couple of email issues. One of them has to do with my Gmail email account. This account is (as IMAP account) on my iPad and (as IMAP account) in Mail on my Mac.

    Incoming mail shows up in both inboxes. What ever I delete in one of the inboxes disapperas immediately also on the other inbox. Just how it should be.

    However, something is wrong with my sent email. What ever I send from my Mac shows up in the Sent folder on my Mac and in the Sent Mail folder at Google but nowhere on the iPad. How can I fix this? Thanks.
