    This is a strange one. Often, after I read an email and then go to look for it later, it doesn't exist! Not always, but more
    often than not. It will show up on my imac, however.

    I have all the settings on all my devices, and the server set properly to not delete from server EVER.

    I wonder, when mail is downloaded onto the iPad is it stored locally on the iPad?

    And this may or may not be related, whenever I "search for messages on server", it never finds anything... "No messages found on server." Aaargh!:rolleyes:
    (does this deserve another thread? )

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    G'day Jteaser and welcome to the forum. My question may be a bit simplistic but when you have read an email, do you delete it? It should be in Mailboxes "Trash".
    Regards, Andrew

    Hi Andrew,
    Ah, but we're it that easy!
    I don't delete them after I've read them. That's why it's so weird.
    When the mail is downloaded, is it store locally on the iPad?
    Thanks!

    I wonder if this would help:
    Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars then tap on Show and check out the number of emails to show.
    Regards, Andrew
