I'm using OSX mail as my default mail client right now. I want to be able to use my iPhone for email as well, however I can't figure out how to set up the imap or pop options the way I want. Basically, I want my mail client to get email as usual. If I'm out, I want my phone to tell me when I get a new email. If I get an email on my phone and read it, I'd like for the same message at home to be marked as read. Ideally, I'd like it so if I check my mail at home, it does not get sent to my phone, or if it does, have it already marked as read if it has been read. The way I have it now is that it all depends on which I check first. If I get an email at home and check my mail on my phone, the message doesn't even show up (this is ok). If I check my mail on my phone first it doesn't show up on my home email at all although I'd like for it to. Currently I have both set up as pop accounts. I dislike how Mail handles gmail imap accounts. Any advice? For reference, I'm using Mail to read email from gmail. I know it's just a matter of playing with settings on various clients and accounts, but I can't figure it out.
