    I need to find a way to transfer unsent, outgoing messages from my MacBook Pro to my iPhone for sending while I'm on the go.
    I fly a lot and it's the only time I can write long, detailed replies to coworkers and customers. Problem is, those emails can't be sent until I'm home or in the hotel with free wifi; I want to send everything when I get off the airplane using the iPhone's mail app (and data plan).
    Obviously tethering would solve my problem, but I'm still waiting on that from AT&T. Another tempting option would be a keyboard for the iPhone, but I'm still waiting on that one too.
    I did a lot of research and can't seem to find an answer here. It seems like there would be an easy way to sync my mail.app folders to my iPhone using the USB cable, but I can't find it. Am I missing something obvious?

    CAn you save it as a draft in your laptops mail app, then open the drafts
    folder on your iPhone and send? That's what I do.

    I didn't think you could sync any messages, including drafts. When I perform a sync between my iPhone and Mail, it only makes sure the email account settings match. Am I missing something?

    Anyone able to help here? For the life of me I can't figure out how to sync messages (primarily drafts) between the iPhone and mail.app

    Perhaps that is for IMAP email accounts instead of POP? At least that's the most info I can found on the internet.
