iOS9 iPad keeps retrieving very old mail IMAP?

Views: 594 Replies: 2
I'm at my wits' end. Does iOS automatically convert the iPad mail accounts to IMAP? I have a huge archive of mail on my MacBook Pro, and I do NOT want all of that clogging up my iPad, so I set it up to have POP accounts. But now I am randomly getting absolutely HUGE piles of mail going back at least a year or two or more in big lumps. I delete everything. I empty the trash. I have emptied my SERVER from both the iPad and the MacBook PRO constantly. NOW I have a batch of hundreds, or more like thousands of emails, which I have deleted at least five or six times in the last two days. I mean I have deleted the SAME mails, which then return. I have done a restart of the machine with no joy. Just out of the blue mail that has been deleted from the MacBook pro AND the server just comes back like a zombie. In addition, I get to a situation where the mailboxes report no mail at all, but the icon for MAIL shows a big backlog of unread emails.

Is it converted to iMap and insisting on syncing with my MacBook Pro? If this is an unavoidable option, I'll have to ditch the stupid iPad. HELP!

Ok - couple of things

Best of my knowledge - the iPad does not sync with MBP

Secondly go into Settings - Mail, Contacts Calendars - go into the mail account in question - if it says something like iCloud SMTP Server or Yahoo SMTP server - it is IMAP

Thirdly - have you had a chance to directly log on to the web portal of the email provider?So for Yahoo email it would be mail.yahoo.com - and detailed the emails from there? It is understandable that you want to retain them on the Ma and IF your Mac account is POP - deleting them from the server will NOT delete them from the email client - nonetheless you can make a copy of the mail folder and store it elsewhere for additional security and peace of mind
