Hi, I am an iphone user, and I check my mail at the same time with webmail. The phone is working ‘ok’ for over a month. I have the IMAP prefix set up, etc.
I am having buggy issues though. I was at the apple store yesterday and they told me it was my mail server — dreamhost.
The issues I’m having is that some of my mail isn’t getting to my iphone. It shows up in my webmail but not all of it is on the iphone. In addition, I check my mail from mail.app on my home computer and ALL of the mail is on it also. (I don’t think I have to use a prefix in my settings in mail.app on computer.) So only the iphone isn’t getting it all. The people at the genius bar at apple said that this has to do with my mail server, maybe IMAP errors I’m getting in webmail, maybe configurations.
Another problem I’m having is that when I send photos from my iphone mail app it is creating another sent folder. So, INBOX/INBOX/sent rather than storing it in INBOX/sent. They thought that the ‘prefix’ might be a little wrong and causing this bug. (It still sends the message, but I just have to move the sent email to the correct location and then login to webmail>options to delete additional folder.)
Can anyone help me with these issues?
My current config:
incoming and outgoing: uses SSL
IMAP Path Prefix: INBOX
