Emails not shown in MW after being read on mobile phone

Wed Jun 01, 2022 12:04 am

I have an email account set up on my mobile and also on my PC in MW, both as IMAP.

Unread emails on the mobile show in MW but if I open an email on the mobile it then no longer shows in MW but does get picked up by Outlook.

(I should note that if an email is deleted on the phone, it does then show in MW, even if read!).

I can't see any settings that would control this behaviour.

The quick fix is in MailWasher go into Settings >> Accounts >> Incoming >> Advanced >> check Download Read EMail >> Save.

That'll then load all the Read messages in the Inbox folder.
Another option could be to set the phone so it does not flag messages as Read, but that would depend on the phone/app and if that's an option at all.

Apologies. I'd look for something like this and hadn't spotted it. DOH!

Many thanks.
