    I have iCloud mail set up to push to my iPhone. It works great when I receive a new message, but if I read that message on my Mac rather than my phone, my phone doesn't update to reflect the read status unless I manually open the Mail app. So, sometimes I'll look at my phone and see the red icon indicating unread messages, only to open up the Mail app and see them disappear as read several hours ago. Is there any way to fix this?

    Same issue here. I have mba with mavericks latest version, iPhone 5S and iPad air 7.1.1 and email read status never sync for me while Apple "introduced" this feature with Mavericks?

    My thoughts ... iCloud is based on IMAP and the standard to allow push on it is using IDLE command. I believe that IMAP-IDLE protocol may be patented ... and Apple doesn't wanna use or lease/buy it.
