I have my mail set up as imap. Whenever I deal with mail on my MAC, (read, delete messages, etc), the effects quickly sync to my iPad and iPhone without me even thinking about it. I like that.
Also, if I do something the the mail on the iPhone, the effect will show up on my iPad and vice versa.
HOWEVER, they DO NOT show up on the Mac mail app. For example, if I read mail or delete message on the iPad, when I get home and check my MAC, it still has those messages as unread or undeleted. In order for it to sync, I simply close the Mac mail app and re-open it again, and then everything syncs just nicely.
My question is: Shouldn't this "syncing" on the Mac happen automatically? Is there some setting I haven't got right?
Thanks for your help!
P.S. I have Snow Leopard
