It seems like Messages is throwing in old messages at random from a couple of days ago as the newest ones in the converation. It happens at random and can be incredibly frustrating because you suddenly don't know what message you're replying to. It returns to normal after a while but that doesn't stop it from beeing incredibly annoying.

 

I use it together with messages for the iPhone but the problem doesn't appear on the phone.

 

If anyone know what might be causing this behaviour please let me know.

    Hi,

     

    At the moment this cannot be done.

     

    The "Sync" process tends to rely on all devices being On all the time.

    Often a Mac sat at home is not.

    It is either Off completely or is Asleep.

     

    The Sync process is also not very fast and plays out like a speeded up chat.

     

    If the syncing happens as you swap between an iPhone and computer the contact may continue sending new Messages.

    The server will tend to deal with these as they happen  - mixing them with other incoming sync messages.

     

    Despite the use of Time Stamps the app does not seem to make use of them to "Correct" the order as it goes.
