I am embarrassed for admitting this, but I’m having the hardest time figuring out how I want to set up my email on my iPhone. I went through and set up IMAP on my Apple Mail and iPhone last night, and it was just being a huge pain, was trying to download stuff all night long, and still wasn’t working right this morning – kept disconnecting, and I’m not sure what else…so I switched back to POP email this morning with my Gmail.
I would love any advice for what I need to do to make my iPhone email experience a good one. As you can see from above, I love my folders. And many of those folders have sub-folders, with folders in them as well. It’s how I like to stay organized. But if I switch to IMAP, then it seems like I have to re-create all those within Gmail (although they’ll be labels) and I’m just not sure how I want to organize everything.
At any rate, I know everyone tells me that IMAP is the way to go and how I should be doing my email, but it didn’t seem to work too well last night and seemed to make my Apple Mail (where I spend most of my time with email) more chaotic and confusing than it needed to be. But I also want to be able to use my iPhone in the most efficient way, and I’m guessing with POP, I will be able to access all of my email with it, and then when I come home, it’ll all just get downloaded to my computer again, and I’ll have to go through and delete and sort…which is okay – but seems like there would be a more efficient way to do email. I, for some reason or another, just can’t seem to figure it out.
