    Hi there. I currently have 3 email accounts set up on my iPhone. The primary one has recently somehow changed itself from a IMAP account to a POP account. I can no longer access older emails, like I had been able to with my IMAP account. The other two emails have stayed IMAP accounts. Is there any way for me to change it back. I am thinking that this may have been caused by me beginning to use the Mail app on my MacBook? Not sure, but any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Is the misbehaving one a Gmail account by chance? Several users, including me, have noted IMAP GMail issues recently. I, like some others, experienced spontaneous a "remission". YMMV


    Any impatience you show will only create more stress.

    Hi Mr. Mike,
    The misbehaving account is a hotmail account. Any tips?

    Sorry, I only use the browser to access hotmail. It's least frequently used of my 6 email accounts. The other 2 are yahoo, btw.
