@ Julian Wright: So.. if I'm not connected to the internet, I won't be able to see my IMAP mail even the older ones because they were never really local and always being seen on the server? Hmmm.
I quickly looked thru the Mail menus looking for something like "cache email" or "save locally" or some such. Didn't see anything but could have just missed it.
How does one "cache" an email as you put it? And I did see under Mailbox > Synchronize (email address)
If I select this, is this what you meant by "re-sync" ? The way you say it, it sounds like all emails will be available on all devices automatically once the device you made the email local with is on the internet again. If so, then what is the: "Mailbox > Synchronize" for or do?
@wjosten: how do you create a local "only" folder? I think I see how this is different from creating a folder on the server, but not sure how to do that versus creating a local folder on your computer.
Julian says that once your on the internet the local or cached email will then be made viewable on all devices.
Being that my test was done from my home computer where I created a folder and dragged an email into it and both were viewable on my devices, I have to assume I created the folder on the server. So how do you "localize" an email or folder?
Just a brief comment on your last question in your last post - yes you have to delete pop accounts and re-create them to make it an iMap - very annoying and time consuming! Check for your new incoming and possibly outgoing mail server changes and new ports to allowcate in your new set-up.
DON'T FORGET TO BACK UP YOUR MAIL AND CONTACTS BEFORE DELETING THE OLD POP ACCOUNTS! This information will not be saved and must be manually imported into your new email seet-up.
