How do you check SENT Mail using the iOS Mail app?

    I set up my iOS 5's included Mail app to check all my webmail account In-boxes (Gmail, Yahoo, Comcast, Hotmail, etc...) and the push any new mail to my iPhone. The sending and receiving is working great.

    However, I can't seem to find a tab or link to show SENT mail. I know it only sends mail from the account I choose as my "Primary" account, however, there is no option to look at my SENT mail on my iPhone 4S that I actually sent from my iPhone itself. I can only see my In-boxes.


    Am I missing something? Or is this not possible?


    Thanks

    If you get to the screen that shows your Inboxes on the top, it should show Accounts on the bottom. Choose the appropriate account, and it should show all of the folders for that account, including Sent.

    It's A Bit Silly

    But: open mail (this checks the last account you used, hit the account tab at the top left of the screen, this takes you to a screen with all your accounts and inboxes listed.

    At the bottom where it say's Accounts Tap the one you want to view.

    All folders are now visible, Backup up again and check the next one etc.

    It should have been easier, but don't shoot the messenger:)

    +1 on the need for a simplified way to handle this. I find I have to delete messages twice - once for me.com mail and again in the gmail account that was fetched by me.com. At this point, I have the gmail address out to too many people to change all my contacts to the me.com mail, so I guess I'll live with it.

    Another option you have is to turn off me.com checking your gmail, and instead have gmail forward all of your gmail over to me.com, and then delete it after forwarding it.

    Thank you Aristobrat - that's exactly what I did and it works very well! Also, in the Gmail settings for forwarding, you have a pull down menu with the option to delete or keep the email in Gmail once it is forwarded. I have the "delete" option and there are no duplicates and also no need to do double deletes.

    Thanks!
