my wife moved to a new iphone. I have her old phone. We have our own domain / the mail account is set up as POP on the iphone. So all the items she sent from her phone are only on her old phone in the sent folder.
You may say IMAP is the answer, but my view is that over time, the imap folders on the server get too big for the space on the shared hosting. I think the real answer is exchange / office 365.
But regardless, we're trying to get the sent items off her phone. I heard how you can choose these items, then move them to another account (which is set up as imap).
I did that - went into the sent folder, clicked edit, chose the circle next to the first item, press and hold move, then uncheck the circle, then release move....
that SEEMS to be the way to move the hundreds of items.
You then choose what folder to move it to. I chose an imap folder (a gmail account). I check the gmail account online and the fisrt 8 emails DID come over. But no more, even after hours. (and the first 8 came over within a minute).
Looking in the sent folder, it says no mail. (so they aren't in the imap folder (looking on the iphone, it only shows those 8 that are in the web view of gmail) and they aren't in the sent folder. and not in the deleted items folder of the POP account.
a) is there a right way to get emails off a phone?
b) are these sent items lost?
