    Hello Peter,

     

    "Elmer Phd" :-)

     

    not THAT's clever...

     

    Yes, i actually think that most enterprises would be concerned with credentials being sync'd only via cloud.  While Apple's cloud may in fact be more secure than some enterprises, the control instinct in large IT departments is large....

     

    I would not be surprised if this was reconsidered by Apple.  Despite my negative reaction to diatribes, i do think this was a poor move on Apple's part, and likely driven by a desire to push everyone onto 10.7+ and icloud....

     

    Good holidays all,

    Go ahead and laugh it up -- but in doing so, remember that this "Elmer PhD", has a PhD in engineering from one of the top schools in the world, and you do not.  Nor do you have the 3 MS's and MBA I have, but that's besides the point.  Nor do you have my net worth, and it's a rare occasion I spend any time talking to people as regular as you.  Geez I'm suprised apple hasn't nixed this conversation in favor of the small guy like you.

     

    I agree Apple is pushing everyone to 10.7+ and iCloud and I'm fairly sure that's not going to catch on.  It takes a man like Jobs, or a technology so revolutionary that the leader doesn't matter in order for soemthing to succeed.  We have neither right now.

     

    Happy holidays to those of you healthy souls content with your lives.  To the rest of you - accept the life and circumstances you've been afforded, and move on.

     

    And may 10.9 solve all of our problems!

    I dont thin you understood what the guys were talking about.  We used to be able to put a checkmark, one by one, next to each email account we wanted to have on our iOS device.

    No, i understand just fine and explained that to one of the posters above - it was a selective process. I liked it.  but its still nto the end of the world.

     

    It was also nice in that no data was sent to a 3rd party cloud - whcih violates most large enterprise IT reules - like them or not.

    I used to be able to do this before. i know. why has this feature gone away?

  • M1 Grande Level 1 Level 1

    Yes! Where has the feature gone to?

  • MDJCM Level 1 Level 1

    Disappointed that Apple took this step backwards. Finding a way to make Mail settings "keep" syncing, seems a lot easier than engineering the thinnest tablet in the world. I'msure it's not beyond them.

  • Cam.Gould Level 1 Level 1

    Wow. Angry guy without controll over his emotions tells everyone they should listen to him because he has a degree, and continues to act like a surly child. Entertaining and ironic stuff

  • Sam Loy Level 1 Level 1

    Agreed. 14 year + Apple fan, evangelist, etc...I am sooo done with Apple (again). Back to Windows until Steve Jobs is reincarnated.

     

     

    Absolutely ********. I have to MANUALLY set up email accounts on each and every device???? No thanks....Bye now!

  • Sam Loy Level 1 Level 1

    To the grave with Steve Jobs...So long Apple!

     

    This is, without a doubt, the single biggest f-up since Jobs passed. Steve Jobs would have NEVER let this happen!!!

     

    Dumping all stock...

    Yup, just like Windows.

    +1 for this feature. There should be an option in iTunes to select the accounts you'd like to sync. What a pain to have to manually enter this information on all my devices. Even better, could it update this information wirelessly via iCloud? So if my email password is changed, all devices get updated?

    use Keychain on all devices

    That doesnt sync mail accounts. That just allows you to access the credentials for it.

  • peter_watt Level 3 Level 3

    It syncs email passwords which was the question. I only answer the sentences with "?" at the end.
