Native E-mail app: Messages becoming unread
On my Samsung Galaxy S 4G with the native email app, some emails become marked as unread after a week or so, for no apparent reason.
This is a work POP email account. I read email either on my Galaxy or via webmail. I mark messages as read on my phone 99% of the time. But after a week or so, as mentioned, suddenly I'll see a new message notification on the mail icon, and when I look, there are one or more messages which I had previously marked as read now showing unread at the bottom of the list.
On a related note, sometimes when going into my webmail, there will be unread messages which I had marked as read on my phone. So the problem clearly appears to be with the phone email app not updating the server properly all the time, even though I almost always have a good signal.
