Sync notifications across all devices
This already exists in the iOS wishlist as well, but we need the notifications/badge counts to sync across all devices. If I get a notification on my Mac and delete an email, I shouldn't pickup my iPhone 5 minutes later and still see this already addressed notification on my lock screen or the badge count still reflecting an already deleted email. If it's been read on one device or deleted, it should push this to the other devices and reflect the change. I know this capability exists, other apps do it. Please get this added!

In addition to the sync issues already highlighted, I have Airmail on both my iPad and my iPhone. Firstly, it is absolutely random as to wich device mail gets pushed to (never both!) and, if mail is read or deleted on the unnotified device the badge remains unchanged on the other device (i.e. the notification/count persists).
A big annoyance having to think three times on three devices if stuff is done or read before. Without this you always do double work.
this really, really needs to happen. In addition to those concerns laid out in the original comment, what's even more frustrating is that sent emails from one device won't always show up as sent on the other device. I've had the very frustrating experience of sending an important time-sensitive email on my mac, and then going to back to review it or confirm I sent it on my phone and panicking because it isn't there.
same with drafts. I'll save a draft for someone else to look at and try to pull it up on my phone, and it isn't there, even after indicating it's been saved on the original device.
This is extremely important, extremely basic functionality for an email client. Please fix it!

I *totally* support this request. Using AirMail on both Mac and iOS is a truly strange experience, since it seems the apps are 100% disconnected!
Oh! And while doing this, please remember to make the bad old POP3 sync across devices as well. I know it's obsolete, but my employer swears to it, as the (very cheap) email provider they use doesn't support anything else...

Any comment for this, I need this feature.
