Since the last software update on my iPhone 3 all the notes that I writte on the iPhone appears in the mail.app on my mac as income mails.

When I delete the notes at the Mail.app, they are also deleted at the iPhone.

Do you know how to avoid the notes to be deleted?



Turn off notes sync in Settings -> Mail,Calender,Contacts -> select your account and then turn off notes sync.

In Mail if you hit command + comma you can also stop showing notes in the inbox.


When you connect your iPhone, you should have the option in iTunes to turn off the syncing of your Notes.


  • Go to Preferences in Mail.app on your iMac
  • Go to account
  • Then, click account that notes hooked in
  • See, the show notes in inbox
  • Unchecked it

Good luck :D
