Hi Eeniea,


Have your tried turn on and off?

or

Checked the bluetooth settings if something odd?

or

Maybe try to stop the bluetooth processes and start it again... most of the time it works...


Anyway just to let you know the latest macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update has been a real headache for many many users... it created a lot of issues like yours...


Let me know if helpful or if it resolved your issue...

With the previous OS's I would be able to check my email on my iPhone and erase emails if I wanted to. Whatever I did on my iPhone and my computer would show on the other one. Now the email applications on my iPhone and computer don't link anymore, so there's no evidence of what I've done from one to the other. E.g. I have to do double erasures. I don't think the problem is my iPhone, I think the problem is with the High Sierra OS.

That has nothing to do with Bluetooth. It sounds as if, somehow, your email settings have gotten changed from IMAP to POP. Check the account settings in Mail.
