Messages deleted in a Zoho Mail account from another client are not deleted in Mailbird

Emails deleted remotely in Zoho Mail through IMAP (e.g. on your phone) may not be immediately deleted in Mailbird, even after the folder is refreshed.

Please see the 'IMAP Expunge Options' paragraph here for a resolution:

    This is related to all actions done in another email clients. Once I have marked email as read/unread/flagged on my mobile the same actions should be immediately done in Mailbird.

    Any actions done in other email clients will propagate to Mailbird as Mailbird updates the folders with those messages, provided the account is added to both clients as an IMAP account. If either account is POP3 instead, that account cannot send or receive changes made in it due to how that protocol works.

    Note though that not all changes result in a "push" notification to the other client, so that's why the changes aren't necessarily reflected in the other client immediately. That's an issue with the protocol and not particular to Mailbird.

    Thanks for the comment Michael, I have just done a test and it seems Mailbird reflect changes and mail drops.

    I remember I had issues related to the topic but it seems they were something outstanding.

    So I recall my previous comment.

    Let me back again to this.

    If mailbird was offline (laptop was suspended for example) and I made changes (marked email as read for example) in another mail client - mailbird does not reflect changes when up again.

    Is the account added in Mailbird as an IMAP or POP3 account?

    Also, if you hit F5 in a folder that has changes, does it then update? Or does the changes never ever get to Mailbird even if you restart Mailbird?
