    Default Zimbra & iPAD with Multiple Folders and Filters

    Hi. Hoping someone may have a suggestion here:

    Situation is I use my iPad (sometimes iPhone) almost exclusively throughout the day for e-mail (IMAP account) and as I receive hundreds of e-mails I use filters to sort them accordingly. This poses a problem as in Zimbra Web Interface I use the "is:unread" in the default search so it only shows me unread e-mails. The iPad/iPhone however only alerts to mails in the inbox and not the folders below without actually openeing them and refreshing. There is an unread folder BUT as usefull as it is I can read and reply to mails from there etc BUT I cannot mark them read.

    GMail has a solution to this problem with the ALL MAIL folder which just grabs all the mail (links I guess) and displays them there. Essentially I'm looking to try emulate that or be able to mark the messages as read in the unread folder in the Zimbra account which should move them out.

    I'm not joking when I say hundreds of mails a day and I also have a whack of folders as well to keep it organised otherwise my inbox within hours becomes unmanageable and I miss a lot of e-mails I expect at exact times etc because I have to look through a quickly filling inbox so folders/filters are my only choice to remain sane.

    Any solutions or better ideas? All appreciated!

    When you say there's an "unread" folder, do you mean that you have a saved search in ZWC for "is:unread"?

    When I create a saved search for is:unread it does propagate to my IMAP client (Mail.app). If I read any given message, it is marked read but only in the saved search folder in the IMAP client. It doesn't get marked read in the saved search folder within ZWC, or in its actual folder anywhere. So I agree this looks like a bug.

    I opened a bugzilla report for this: Bug 60788 – IMAP client modifications to items in saved search folder do not propagate

    Just out of curiosity - why not setup Zimbra as an Exchange account then you would not have the filing issues on the iPad. Seems to work well on both my iPad and iPhone as Exchange type mail account.

    Exchange account on iPad will only work if you have Zimbra Network edition. FOSS doesn't include ActiveSync.
