    The Messages-app on my Mac always shows notifications when I turn on my computer of iMessages I received but I already read on my iPhone.

    It's pretty useless receiving notifications for messages that are not new anymore.

    I've been Googling around but can't find a solution. Anyone else with the same problem?

    I almost never have this problem. When you say "turn on" do you mean from a powered off state? If so you may need to give iCloud a few moments sync up everything.

    Yes. I've never had issues. Sometimes iCloud is a bit slow in syncing but nothing that'd bother be.

    More annoying to me is how you have to delete messages one by one and have to confirm every delete. Very annoying when I haven't turned on my Mac in awhile. They need to sync up read/delete etc etc. Like IMAP

    Pretty sure you can click one message, shift-click the last message and delete the whole range in one go...

    Same here. When I log into my iMac, from SLEEP mode, I'll receive sound and visual notifications for all the iMessage, messages I've received since I last used my iMac.

    A little annoying...
