    Hi all...

    I have both my iPhone and Mac connected to same email iMAP account, yet sometimes when i receive messages on iOS, the same message does not appear on Mac Mail, despite not being deleted from iOS.

    Why would this be?

    Even though you are using IMAP, I believe there is an option somewhere to delete the message from the server (either upon checking/reading the message(s), or at a predetermined interval). So, you'll want to comb through your email preferences (on both devices), go line by line, don't miss a thing, and see if somewhere you have a "delete from server" preference checkmarked/chosen somewhere.
