I was just thinking about this...
Authored by: ptwithy on Oct 10, '07 03:50:42PM

Because I have a number of imap accounts and the iPhone does not have a merged inbox like Apple Mail. This makes it a pain to see all my mail in one shot on the phone.

And, despite various server-side spam filters, it seems that Apple Mail's junk filter is still doing a fair amount of spam detection. I have it set to move spam to junk folders for all my imap accounts, and I notice when my main computer is asleep/offline, there is a lot of spam in my iPhone inbox.

So... I thought, why don't I just forward all my email accounts to gmail, and them to one imap account that will then be a 'merged' inbox. I'm only hesitating because... gee, do I want google to have all my mail? do I want my personal and work email in one box?

And, I worry that the two sets of forwards, from my 'real' address to gmail, from gmail to my final imap box, could trigger spam alerts as the from address is compared with the server forwarding the mail. SPF worries about things like that...

Aw, I just wish that iPhone mail had merged inboxes. And threads!
