I have had my email set up through cox for years using pop. All mail downloads nicely. But now I can only add an email with imap set up. My apple mail will not download the new imap email through this account except when I first start apple mail. So right now I have to restart it all day long. Am I missing a setting? Then I ran a test email address that was originally set up as pop. I NEVER really received email through this account. I turned it off and opened a new account (same address) but in imap. NOW in my Apple Mail I see a separate mailbox for the imap accounts AND I got a SPAM folder in this test run account almost immediately that appears to have mail in it from my other POP accounts. CAn you feel the confusion? Using mail verison 4.8.
