    Default Does Anyone Have IMAP Setup On Their iPhone?
    I have been playing around with the imap settings on my 3G. My reasons for this is because when I had to restore my iphone it would bring all of the deleted message back in my email.... I am using gmail....

    Since I set this up this way I do not know if I like it or not.... I also set up my Mac to imap as well.... and now I have kinds of stuff in my email app....

    For instance... I have three email accounts I am checking...

    On the left hand side of the screen I have my three... and then those same three at the bottom on the left side to...

    I am confused as to what to do... all I wanted was when I deleted a message from my iphone or mac it would delete it off of my gmail accounts...

    Help appreciated!

    Google has a very clear link on how to set up IMAP for the iPhone (as well as for Mac Mail). Basically, when you delete a message on your phone or Mail, it moves it to the Trash folder in Gmail. However, the trash folder is only emptied every 30 days so while the message won't be in the inbox, it will still be in "All Mail."
