Hi. So I'm converting from using GMail to iCloud Mail. I have a rMini and 5S, both of which are running iOS 7.1. I am using the mail.app with all notifications (lock screen, badge, etc) turned on for both devices. I was under the impression that if I got an email and read it on one device, it would remove the notifications on the other device automatically. This isn't happening for me though. Is this an error or how it's supposed to be? Thanks.

I've had the exact same problem since forever. I thought ios7 was meant to fix it but nothing has ever changed since I've started using an iPhone (2009).

Really? My iMessage notifications sync just fine and I thought the Mail app would do the same thing, especially since I was using Apple's iCloud email service.

I can't comment on iMessage since my mac is never signed into that. But my FaceTime is always signed in on my mac and those notifications never go away unless i physically check them on my mac... exactly the same as my mail.... sucks
