WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I use IMAP on webfaction to sync notes across my iPhone, laptop (OS X Mountain Lion) and iPad, and I have noticed that whenever I edit a note on my laptop, it appears duplicated on my iPhone (and in the webmail interface at webfaction). This happens for even tiny changes - so I just deleted more than 1000 duplicates of one of my notes! However, the duplicates are not visible on my laptop, only my iOs devices and non-Apple IMAP clients.

There are other people who are experiencing this problem on the internet - e.g. this apple support discussion - but their problems are usually about iCloud syncing. And I'm not using iCloud.

Therefore I figured it was worth checking in to see if it was some quirk of the Webfaction IMAP server. Is anyone else seeing any problem like this?

You may submit a support ticket if you would like us to look at the IMAP logs to see if we can find a cause.
