    I have a question about email for you all.
    I occasionally check my email on my iPhone while at work, and when I come home and turn on my iMac, the emails I saw on my iPhone are missing. How can I configure my email settings so that emails are not deleted from my server after viewing them on my iPhone or iPad?
    Thanks

    I don't think Bell South has an IMAP server.

    I appreciate your help, but Im back to first base. I know there is a fix to this, because I had this problem once before and I did learn how to do it. Unfortunately, a recent iPhone glitch required a total format of my phone at the Apple Store. They must have done something to my server settings. I need my emails to remain on my server, after viewing them remotely on my iPhone, so I can view them again once I return home.

    Did that, and STILL when I check my email on my iPhone, those emails don't show up on my server when I get home to my iMac. Is there some configuration that I must change at bellsouth.net?

    The question is: "Do the messages remain on the server?" Login to your account in BellSouth.net's webmail client and take a look.
