I've always had this kind of issue. When I write a new message on Ipad using 'iMessage', it appears immediately even on my Imac running OS X Mountain Lion. But when I delete on Ipad a message, I always had to do the same operation on my Imac because the deletion is not automatic in Mountain Lion. Is it normal? Is it a normal feature of the OS X or is there something wrong with Icloud? Has it ever happen to anyone? Thanks if you can help me.

    Normal.

    Hi,


    Said another way.

    It happens to everyone.

     

    The Sync Process is more "Display on all Devices" than it is about "Change the Status of this item across all devices"

     

    It is a bit like using an IMAP Server with the Mail App allowing your iPhone and Mac to access the same account.

    You can re-read mail that was fetched (but not removed) on another device.

    Thanks Ralph. I thought it was some kind of bug but I hadn't find any post about this problem...it seemed a little strange. But wouldn't be more useful leaving the chioce to the user about what kind of syncronization one prefers? In my opinion, if I decide to delete a message, the message is not important and I haven't any interest to read it again. Anyway, thanks again.

    Hi,

    Sometime I think I would like it if I could delete an iMessage completely.

    Other times when reading them on my iPhone I wish to leave them until I can answer them with something that is on my Mac.

     

    It seems that as a device or a Mac that is off line can "catch up" on iMessages sent within a few hours would suggest that the iMessages are held on the server for a period.

     

    It would be handy for different levels of "deletion".
