     Can anyone give me some instructions on how to sync my college email, which ends with .edu on my Macbook running Snow Leopard (OSX 10.6.8) using the Mail application and on my Iphone 4S running IOS 6.01?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.0.1

    If your mail account ending in .edu is a POP mail account, messages will download to each device, unless you just view them with a web browser via the internet, so that all messages stay on the server.


    If you want to sync devices and mail, you need to have an IMAP account.


    See this for deeper description of POP versus IMAP mail accounts.
