    This is the type of "crappy monopolistic behavior" that will probably make me stop buying Apple products very soon.

     

    Apple introduced iCloud and now is forcing everyone to use it to sync stuff like notes. Was that easy to allow iTunes to do it as well like in the past? Seriously?

     

    Note to guys at Apple: With all the respect (because most of you are just making what have been told to) go f**** yourselfs over.

     

    By a lot of reasons starting with privacy and ending in coporate/government policies it's actually impossible for professional user to use your **** s*** cloud services.

     

    I bet with all of you guys that Apple won't fix this IMAP issue. And yes I tried to set the inbox path and it's still not working... but on my iPhone (iOS 5) it is working and correctly sending the notes to the server...

     

    Have a nice day.

    AGreed. Hah. Funny. They've still not fixed this form on iPhone.

     

    ANyway, I agree that they won't fix this. In fact, the "conspiracy" goes deeper because I emailed this issue to macrumors.com or appleinsider.com and neither of them have chosen to write an article about it. I highly recommend you, and everyone else irritated by this, writes to them and asks them to take Apple to task on this bug.

    My suspicion is that since there is workaround to this oversight on their part, they're just hoping that if they leave the issue long enough, people would eventually bit the bullet and fix it by using the workaround.

    Looks like everything is working on mine now.  Not sure what changed though.

  • Viper320 Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Nope, still not working.

  • Philon Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    For me it's definitly an Apple-bug and not fixed...

     

    anyhow it bugged me for to long so I set out on how to fix it server-side (yes, I have the dovecot imap server in control). http://wiki.dovecot.org/Namespaces describes Courier compatible namespaces (which I had upgraded from). This set I can access my mailbox with AND without INBOX.-prefix.

     

    Since then it's all working like dreams come true.

     

    If you don't have control over the server but unix knowledge, you could try offlineimap or imapsync to synchronize your server with a local copy of your mailbox. Then this could be provided to Notes without prefix.

     

     

    Okay, for the rest of you... it'll be to bad as I would also think that Apple is not going to fix this soon...

    Sudennly, after the last iOS update, I couldn't sync notes between iPhone 4s and Mountain Lyon. I used to get it done through my gmail account. So, I had to open an iCloud mail account and enable notes on my Mac and on my iPhone via iCloud (all through settings) .  Finally moved all my notes to the iCloud carpet and then it all got sync. A nightmare to discover that.

    Macbook Pro - Mountain Lion.  I don't use icloud.

    I was having this problem.

    I found that by enabling only one email acount to sync the issue corrected.

    This is what my settings now look like.

     

    On my iPhone:

         A) Settings, Notes, Default Account, Gmail IMAP

         B) Settings, Mail/Contacts/Calendars, Gmail IMAP, Notes = ON

               (All other mail accounts - Notes = Off)

     

    On my Mac:

         A) Open Notes Aplication

         B) Notes drop-down menue, Accounts, Mail/Contacts/Calendars,

                   Choose which Account (I chose Gmail IMAP),

                   Check the notes check box on the right side to enable.

         C) Notes drop-down menue, Default Account, Choose which Account

                   (I chose Gmail IMAP)

     

    Clearly I am not a tech person and I don't know which of these steps is redundant but my notes are syncing.

              There are still some really old ones that never made it onto my Mac... still working on this.

     

    My question is this: If notes are still somhow involved with mail accounts,

              why are they no longer viewed and accessed through the Mail allpication on my Mac?

    Just putting a post here to to tell Apple there are many users that have this problem. It works fine on my IPhone, but not in Notes.app.

     

    I feel this is unacceptable. "I just works" - HA!

     

    I made the swich a year ago from Windows to Mac. Im starting to regret it. Apple do a lot a things much worse than Microsoft. How many times havent i heard, "no thats not possible on a mac."

    iTunes 11 no longer supports notes in the iPad settings within the "Other" category.  The only current way to move your old "On My iPad" notes to the new "Mountain Lion" notes is to navigate to the following folder:

     

    "User" / Library/Mail/V2/Mailboxes/

     

    You will need to download TinkerTool and relaunch the Finder allowing you to view hidden folders to get there.

     

    Once there, copy the Notes.mbox folder and move it to your desktop.

     

    Open Mail and import the Mailbox folder now found on your Desktop.  This will import all your old notes as e-mails.

     

    Now open Notes and quickly copy each e-mail text from mail to notes.  It's a little teadious, but it's the fastest and only method so far until someone creates an Automator WorkFlow to do it for you.

     

    Good luck!  I just did 180 in about 20 minutes.

    Poop. This seems to be an issue with Courier Mail mail server. I can repeat it here. Everything works great using every other Linux mail server I've worked with (Cyrus and Dovecot), so I don't see any conspiracy here. Courier Mail is my least favorite of the three. They just haven't tested with it. File bug reports, People:

  • Jace Cavacini Level 1 Level 1 (35 points)

    I've submitted a bug report. They closed it as a duplicate. The master report is 10952870 but you'll never see it. Supposedly the priority of a bug report goes up the more it's reported, so everyone here who's bothered by this should submit their own bug report. EVERYONE.

    The original post does not talk about IMAP or POP or any email settings to sync Notes ans there is a lot of people talking about that in this thread. I have exactly the same problem as I cannot sync my notes from my Iphone to my Mac even though most of them are recently created and all icloud settings are correct but no Notes sync...

     

    I do not sync my emails at all over the cloud as I do not wish to have my personal emails on the cloud and anyway, why should I sync my emails to get my Notes synced while there is an option to just sync Notes?

     

    There is obviously an option in IOS and Mac Os which does not work at all with Moutain Lion. I am going to report that bug.
