    Hi there,

    I recently purchased an iPhone and was wondering if there is a way to add a couple of pop3 email accounts that I use on a PC for work to mail on my iMac & iPhone.

    The idea is to check emails on the move, so that I can read & reply but the mails remain on the server so I can still download them later on the work PC.

    Looking forward to your replies.

    TIA

    i don't haved an iPhone so i'm not sure if it supports POP3 (i think it may), but mail.app certainly supports POP3 accounts.

    Thanks for the reply swiftaw.

    The iPhone supports pop3, but the main issue is to keep the mails on the server so I can download them later on a work PC later.

    I believe it does

    In Mail go to Prefs and click on accounts, if you have your POP account added, ok, if not add it. Click on your POP account and go to the Advanced tab... there you can tell it what to do with the messages on the folder.

    I think this is what you are looking for.:eek:
