I dont use messages on my computer, but I do have it set up with my account.

Generally I use messages on my iPod Touch to message other family members on their iphone/ipods.

 

I dont suppose this can really be fixed, its probably just a software bug.

    Hi,

     

    Try deleting that .plist when the Messages app is closed down (Quit)

    HI,

     

    The Unread Messages in Messages on the Mac compared to an iOS device is a bit of a known issue.

     

    Apple use the word "sync" but it seems it is only "Display iMessage on all devices and computers" and not a full on syncing of actions taken elsewhere.

     

    It seems that the Mac version is particularly bad at keeping up with what has been "read" elsewhere to the extent it is a separate issue.

     

    I will wait to hear more.
