Well I'm seeing some new things for sure. I did not realize that my computer and the email server talked to each other. A lot.
Example 1) I receive an email on my mac and see it on the server. I move the message into a folder in my mail app and it disappears off the server. If I take it out and leave it in my general inbox, it reappears on the server.
Example 2) I start writing an email and it shows up onlineon the serveras a draft.
Example 3) I reply to an email in my general inbox and it shows up on the server as being replied to.
Usually whatever I did on my mac did not affect the server. Now they are connected in a way that's almost creepy on the privacy end of things. That being said, what is the best way to control my incoming email as I have multiple work clients and project emails that need to be filtered into separate folders for clarity.
Edit: plus I want the messages to reach my iphone and by moving them into sub folders they are "deleted" in the servers mind.
