iPhone 4 Mail Setup - IMAP vs POP?
- date: December 14, 2011
I've had a lot of frustration getting my email on all of my devices ever since I added a work PC into the mix. I have three email accounts - 2 personal Gmail accounts and and a work sbcglobal.net (Yahoo/ATT) account. I also have 3 devices I use to access these accounts - an iPhone 4 with the built-in Mail app, Macbook Pro with Mail app, and a Windows 7 laptop with Outlook 2010. What I want is to have all three of these devices get each and every email. What happens currently is that emails either end up on my PC or on my iPhone and Macbook. I'm asking the question here because the part in the chain I understand least is the iPhone mail. I believe the problem either lies with IMAP vs. POP3 setup or with some kind of syncing feature on the iPhone. All 3 email accounts are setup for POP3 access on my PC and the 2 gmail accounts are POP3 and the SBCGlobal is IMAP on my Macbook.
