I keep thinking I've found an answer on here, but to no avail, I cannot find a discussion that meets my needs.


Here's the deal.  I have Yahoo on my iPhone, right?  When I read an email in my Yahoo account on my iPhone, and later log into my Yahoo account, it shows those messages as read.  Heck, I can even file my emails away in my folders, if I want to; i.e. move them over to my bills folder, or my purchases folder, or my mom folder. lol


Now, here's the deal with my other account tho.  I have my work emails going to my iPhone too.  At work, I use Outlook.  I do not know a whole lot about how things are set up over here, but I have access to answers if you guys can help me find out the right questions to ask. 


Here's my issue:  When I read a work email on my iPhone, and I get to work the next morning, there it is, bold and unread.  I really want it to show as read. 

I get an obnoxious amount of work emails.  The whole point in keeping up with them on my phone is to save me time in the long run.  So, when I get to work and have to re-read them all, I've saved nothing.


Please help! 


Also, it would be phenomenal if you could also help me find a way to toss work emails in folders I have set up on my Outlook, as well.

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1

    If it is an Exchange account or an IMAP account, read/unread marks synchronize with the server and all clients set up to access it via IMAP or Exchange protocols. If one or more of the clients is using POP3, then unread marks do not synchronize.  Same goes for the ability to see and file to folders.


    How are you set up to access your work e-mail in Outlook?
