Hi all,

I am new to mac and am having trouble getting the mail app to sync my mail accounts correctly.
I am trying to get my BT yahoo accounts and accounts to work. BT uses imap and sky use gmail, I have 2 iPod touch's and an iPad, all of which work perfectly with these accounts updating all devices instantly.
With the imac though, it only seems to update if I quit and restart the app. I have an email that I have read and deleted on the iPad, but on the iMac it is still showing as unread in the inbox, but if I look at the trash folder it is showing in there also! When I quit and restart, the inbox updates correctly.

I have just tried deleting the mail folder and recreating the email accounts, but this has not helped. This is really annoying, I'm hoping someone has a solution please....

QUOTE Thanks
