    I have had my iMac for about a month now and I just bought the iPhone:D. The one thing that is bothering me is that I get multiple, different drafts of the same email in my inbox. For example- I will send an email and then when I look at all of my mail, it has one sentence of the email I sent. Then another email will have two sentences...and so on.

    The major problem here is that when I get mail on my iPhone I get so many editions of the emails that I have sent. Its like it automatically saves drafts for me and then emails them too me. It must be a setting in Mail? How can I change this???!!!:confused:

    Use IMAP instead of POP3. I have my emails synced up with the web-based gmail,, outlook on my desktop and mail on my iphone.

    If I send an email on my iphone, it'll store that email in the sent folder, in which all of the comptuers including the web based would be synced up. Quick, painless, and simple.

    This is a known issue for IMAP users. Happens to me sometimes from too. I think the solution was to NOT save drafts on the server. You can change this from within the preferences.
