I recently decided that I've had it with all the problems trying to get Mail to sync on both my iPhone and MBP. In an effort to fix this, I've disconnected Mail from all of my accounts and switched them over to Outlook. I'm wondering if anyone else has had their fair share of problems with Mail. I think the Mail app works on the surface, but it really needs an overhaul especially when syncing multiple accounts between two devices.

What are your thoughts?

I use Thunderbird on my iMac. Mail syncs fine to my phones and my computer. These email accounts are set up as IMAP, right?

Yes, they are set up as IMAP. The problem is that it doesn't always sync my mail and often I will delete a message on my phone and find the message is still on my Mac or vice-versa. I'm not too terribly impressed with the GUI in Mail, either. That is part of the reason for my switching.

It sounds like it's setup at POP. You said it isn't, so I guess there is a problem with the IMAP setup because it's not working properly.
