    I restored an iphone 5 to iphone 5s and some of my flagged emails are gone.. Well most of them are gone.. There is only 2 remaining both from 2 different accounts. But all my flagged email still shows fine in mac mail.. Is there anything I can do to try get them to show again? They are so old i can find them to re flag.

    Yes, you can. (I assume you're using the default Apple Mail.app with most likely IMAP accounts?) The Inbox only shows the last x number of emails. Just scroll down to the bottom to the oldest email in each inbox and keep swiping up on the screen. This will refresh the display and retrieve older emails. Keep doing this until your older emails are displayed in the inbox. After that, they will appear in your Flagged folder.

    Hey thanks but unfortunately that didn't work. I still only have 2 flagged on my iphone. But now something strange has happened. I have like 6000 flagged on my mac mail on the computer. Originally I only had like 15.. This just happened now which is strange but I think its a result of flagging all then unflagging a few days which was a recommendation found on the apple forums. Not sure why it only happened now.. And why they are still flagged seems like my mail are not syncing correctly from computer to phone?

    Any other ideas?

    Went back into my phone flagged/unflagged all .. eventually got it back to the original 2 that where showing on the phone and then it went and re tagged all by its self so now I have 9000 flagged. this is driving me nuts.

    And now i just resorted to unflagging all and cant really remember all my flagged mails. :( One of these days restore will work flawlessly...
