    I just got an iPhone 3G and I synced it up with Mac Mail. There's just one problem: whenever I read a letter in Mac Mail and even delete it, it still shows up in my iPhone as new. Here's an example of what I'm saying:

    - I get an e-mail, read it on Mac Mail, delete it.
    - Later I hit "update" on my iPhone's Mail app. and it will show the message I deleted on Mac Mail and mark it as new.

    Is there anyway the iPhone can update with Mac Mail?

    Thanks!

    What type of e-mail account is it? POP? IMAP?

    Sounds like it may be POP and the messages are being kept on the server.

    It's POP. If I set it to delete off the serve will that delete it out of my GMail account online? Also, how do I change that setting?

    Sounds like you're should change the connection to IMAP so that a change on one device changes everywhere.

    Not to sound stupid, but do you know how I do that?
