    I have just got my ipad in addition to my macbook and iphone. I use me.com and have all my emails sent to me.com which then pushes message to both the macbook and the iphone. However when I delete them off my iphone they go from my ipad.

    Also if my ipad is off and emails have been downloaded to my macbook the do not come through on the ipad when turned on. Is this clear?

    Anyway anyone got any idea how to work this out so essentially all emails go to all 3 devices? I am happy to delete them from each manually.

    On each device, make sure the email is set up as IMAP and not POP3. On each device turn off "delete messages on server when they are deleted on this device". All set. I have my email go to me.com, my iPod Touch, my iPad and my blackberry. All email gets to all devices every time. I only allow 200 messages on my iPod Touch and iPad, but thousands on my Mac and in me.com. I should also mention I have copies sent to gmail mainly for speedy searching.

    Yes all of my accounts are POP. I have some system that even I can't remember how I set them up but basically I have a couple of domains and they are powered by gmail. Everything gets forwarded to me.com which then pushes them to the other devices.

    How can I just change them to imap from pop? Can't see anywhere to do this on the iphone or ipad and nothing on me.com. Any guidance would be very helpful.
