    Is there any way to get my iPhone 4 to display messages sent from my iMac or MB, and vice versa? It is irritating to have to check each machine to see messages sent from them, rather than have all Sent Messages viewable on all machines.

    Do you use IMAP? They should all sync to the same folder on the server.

    I have an MM account. That's IMAP by default, isn't it?

    I assume you are talking about email messages?

    Set your email accounts up as IMAP rather than POP and it will keep everything up to date on all of your devices.

    It should be.

    Check your accounts in Mail / Preferences.

    I have. MM shows as IMAP, GMail (which I hardly use) shows as POP.


    Edit: Ah, I just noticed that "Store Sent Messages on Server" was unchecked. Ooops! What a noob!

    Make sure you tick the box to store sent messages on the server.
