    Hello again,
    As no one has been able to help me with my previous question I did some more digging on my own and need some more help.

    My phone has 665 e-mails in its 'sent' folder (using pop3), and when I try and manually access the messages by going
    private/var/mobile/Library/Mail/POP-/Sent Messages.mbox/Messages
    I only have 212 of them display, could someone enlighten me to where the rest of my 'sent' e-mails are stored?
    I'd like to manually back them up

    Thanks!

    Same here, 4 years later ...

    At the ipad i see a lot of sent emails (more than 100) but in the private/var/mobile/Library/Mail/POP-/Sent Messages.mbox/Messages folder i can only find 5 emlx files :confused:,
    Is it possible that the mails in the view are stored at a cache file?
    Any suggestions where i could find them?

    I want to make a backup of these because i will change to IMAP and i think there is no other way to keep the local sent emails (pop3) for a later import.

    regards rilak
