    Hi people, just a quick one, you know the 'ON MY MAC' folders which basically removes IMAP stuff from Inbox to keep on the Mac, Is there any easy way of making that folder visible on the iPhone 4, as well as the standard Inbox, or not without transferring them to phone physically each time?

    The only way to do this is to put the folder on the server

    from Mail go to the Mailbox menu and select new Mailbox, make the location as MobileMe and give it the same name as you 'On My Mac' one

    then copy the messages across into this

    Thanks, do I need a proper mobile me account, I think I had one for 'find my iphone' but not a paid sub?

    think it needs a full account, if you have a working @me.com address now should work with that, or in a few weeks (or thereabouts) you can get an iCloud email address

    This will also work with any IMAP email, I use Gmail and have all my folders stored on there so they are viewable on all devices
