Since the upgrade to the email system I am having problems with my iPhone and iPad not syncing properly. Incoming email is not an issue. The problem is emails being deleted on one device and not showing as being deleted on the othe devices, i.e. an email deleted from the website via PC does not show as being deleted on the mobile devices and email deleted on the mobile devices do not show as being deleted when going to the website (they sometimes show as being read). This was not a problem prior to the upgrade; my account was setup for IMAP prior to upgrade. Deleting and reinstaling the app on the mobile devices "corrects" the problem on the initial load of email but doesn't fix it going forward. Signing out and signing back in does not resolve the issue. Running Windows 10 on the PC and iOS version 10 on the mobile devices. iPad is WiFi only.
Any suggestions for a fix?
I was on phone with tech support and they opened a ticket as she was ghosting my screens and she had same issue. I am on iPhone SE, IOS 10.0.2, IMAP with correct port assignments. My desktop is Windows 10, using Xfinity Connect. I ensured all devices are IMAP not POP.
1) Sent test email to my PC.
2) Deleted test email on PC.
3) It deleted from PC inbox.
4) It did not delete from iPhone inbox.
5) Sent new test email to my PC.
6) Deleted test email on my iPhone.
7) It deleted from iPhone inbox.
8) It deleted from PC inbox.
It appears it is a one way issue. Hoping they fix soon as have been using Connect since it became an app. Wondering if it has something to do with one of the delete settings. On PC Connect you have an option in mail to immediately delete email. Not sure if that would move it to trash or delete it completely. On iPhone the small increment for delete is one week. Will be my next experiment.
I am having the same issue. Work all day using comcast's webeamil through my browser. Then look on my iphone and nothing I've done all day has synched up with comcast's iphone app. So frustrating. I've spoken to customer service three times about this. They keep telling me they are working on it. But nothing seems to be a happening. It all went south when they upgraded the design of their webmail interface. The only solutiion is to delete the app at night and reinstall it. So stupid.
Rest assured we are aware and working on it. The problem does seem to be both elusive and impacting some people more than others, but we are working to figure it out.
I'm having the same issue, it's very frustrating and when I try to send an email from my laptop, I get constant message that the draft is being saved. Very annoying.
