    On my BlackBerry, one thing I liked was that I could view the emails I sent along side messages I recieved so that I could keep up with the contents of the conversion, even in threaded conversations (which I have enabled on the iphone)

    However, even threaded conversations in the iphone only show the INBOX, not the replies.

    I have my email set up through exchange and am having no problem with Push but it seems nonsensical that if I want to say delete an entire convo that when I delete the Inbox message thread that I still have the "sent" reply still in there under the "sent" folder.

    Why can't I view both my sent and received in one window?

    I'm anal about checking my email and organizing it, so it stands that I want an efficient way of deleting it too.

    Any suggestions?

    It's not how iOS Mail works. There is no setting on a non-jailbroken iPhone to view "Sent" messages in the Inbox that I'm aware of.

    So are you saying there is a jail-broken option?


    And does anyone else have a qualm about this set-up of the device?

    No, but it's definitely not available in the standard iOS, so the only way you'd get it is through a jailbreak.

    Apple recently implemented this on Lion, and it's a useful feature. I expect to see it in iOS at some point.

    Can't seem to find this in iOS7. Just like the OP I like to see the entire message train. Wish they would add this to the iOS like in OSx.
