Switching Email to IMAP? Make Sure Other Devices Aren’t Deleting Your Inbox

If you are switching an email account from POP to IMAP, make an inventory of all the other computers, gadgets and devices that may be accessing your email via POP. All of them — iPhone, Androids, iPads, Mac, PC, every last one. At the least, they will mark all your Inbox items as read when checking for new mail.

Drafts launches fast so you get the idea down first, and then decide what to do with it. After you use it about three times, you’ll wonder how long before Apple will buy the developer out and add it to iOS.
