Properly sort Drafts, Deleted, and Sent mail on the iPhone

 

Once you have set up your email, you may notice that when you try to drag email into the trash icon, it doesn't allow you to do so. If that is the case, you'll want to map your trash to the trash folder. 

 

Configure your mobile Mail client so that Sent Mail, Deleted Mail, Drafts, and Junk are reflected properly after syncing back between the iPhone client, webmail and any other desktop clients you may have.

 

  • Open ‘Settings’ > ‘Mail’ > [Your Brownrice IMAP account] > ‘Advanced’

  • Select ‘Sent Mailbox’ > ‘On the Server’ > ‘[Brownrice IMAP account] Sent. Return to the ‘Advanced’ view.
  • Select ‘Drafts Mailbox’ > ‘On the Server’ > ‘[Brownrice IMAP account] Drafts’. Return to the ‘Advanced’ view.
  • Select ‘Deleted Mailbox’ > ‘On the Server’ > ‘[Brownrice IMAP account] Trash’. Return to the ‘Advanced’ view.

 That's all the magic there is to it!

 You are now ready to send and receive email from your iPhone or iPad until the cows come home! Enjoy.
