    problem: ANY changes (deleted, marked as unread, etc) made on the iphone do not show up anywhere except the iphone. BUT, if i make the same changes from Apple Mail client on my mac, the changes show up on the iphone. WHY?

    details. i setup a NEW account on apple mail as an IMAP to my original gmail address (tobysbox), i then started a NEW acccount on iphone as "other" and set it up as an IMAP. IMAP prefix is blank. Both are receiving new mail properly. Under iphone mail settings>account name>advanced>mailbox behaviors -i suspect i may have a wrong setting here. it is left at the default settings since im having trouble understanding what my choices mean.

    Does anyone have a step by step guide or know what i'm leaving out? google is my friend, but shes playing hard to get at this point.

    Man, I'm having the exact same problem.

    At first I thought is was just me, that I had something funky in either Gmail or on my iPhone, but after pretty much starting from scratch everythings' still f'd up.
