    Hello, this is my first post!

    I have an iMac running OS X 10 with yahoo and gmail accounts set up on Mail (version 6.5) using IMAP settings.

    The same email accounts are set up on my iPhone 5 and as far as I can tell from searching the web all the settings are correct so that everything syncs back to the yahoo server and the 'master copy' so to speak is stored there.

    My issue is that on the Mac, the sent items are not syncing back to the server so I can't see an email sent from my mac in sent items on my phone or when logging into yahoo on the web and emails i send on my iphone don't sync back to mac even though they sync back to the web app.

    My Gmail accounts sync fine through all three platforms.

    I'm pretty sure that all the settings are as they should be - that said, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    Make sure all Yahoo accounts are set to IMAP. What you are describing is POP behavior.
