In the iPhone Mail app, I got two mails of the same sender in my "Unknown" folder. I then moved them both to my "Inbox" folder since I trusted the sender. But looking up the inbox, I found only one of the two. I would normally oversee this. But I needed that second mail to work with at once, so that I had to open my mail provider's website online in my iPhone to get it back, and later, I could also read it in Thunderbird and Outlook, but it did not come back in the iPhone Mail app.
These should be roughly about the same thing:
- Emails Received but not Visible in Inbox with IOS 10 on iphone - but it reads as if there is just a main guide on how to get mails, not about missing mails.
- How to Fix the Emails Not Appearing in the Mail App on iOS 17 - but it sounds like updating is the only fix here, and I update the OS whenever it asks for it. And it also is about iOS 10 but writes iOS 17 to catch some clicks for some cross-sales.
- iphone mail not showing mail that shows up in Apple Mail mailboxes on iMac made me check Settings -> Email -> Accounts -> at the bottom: Download new data -> and the settings are right, on "Download".
My iOS is 15.7.8 on an iPhone 7.
How can I get this missing email (and if there are, any other missing emails) back to the Mail app?
PS: At least, I did see the later missing mail in the first place. If that holds true for any incoming mail, I should just read all mails in the first place where they come in or check any needed mail that I moved in its new folder. Therefore, this bug is not as bad or dangerous as it sounds. When I search through my mails in my iPhone Mail app, I should still keep in mind that there might be some very few mails missing in the search output.
