iOS 13 Mail app duplicate sent items with Outlook bug still troubles users
If you are an iOS user or ever was one, you know how Apple treat their ecosystem. They want to keep it closed so as to increase the security. However, scammers try and sometimes succeed in swindling the users with fake websites.
All Apple gadgets run on their own in-house platform. Dubbed as iOS, they release a new iteration every year with fixes and features. The latest, iOS 13 went live on 19 September 2019. Nonetheless, the users suffered from a bluetooth glitch until version 13.1.2.
They have released four incremental upgrades. It seems like the last one brought about the fix for the bluetooth connectivity bug. Another one, iOS 13.2 surfaced as a beta build two days ago on 16 October.
Let’s set aside iOS for the time being and have a look at macOS. People have been experiencing a weird trouble on it for quite some time. If you send a mail using the built-in application, it will store two copies of the same message.
It looks like the issue has found its way to iOS 13. We could spot multiple user complaints on different social platforms. Let me invite your attention to one we took from the official Apple Discussions website.
This has bugged me with MacOS Mail for years, and with iOS13 Mail I now have the problem on the iPhone (6s)
I have 4 email accounts, one iCloud account (no problems) and 3 Outlook.com accounts. All 3 now store duplicate sent items in the app.
They are not stored on the server sent folder, and only one copy is received by the recipient.
I have deleted the accounts and added back.
Thete is no setting on webmail to help me.
iOS 11 and 12 did not have this problem though MacOS have had it for years. Its no doubt a Microsoft glitch but only shows up in 13.
Any help, or others testing this would be appreciated.
On investigating further, we could see another user who added his Gmail account using Microsoft Exchange with the same problem. Given Outlook also is a Microsoft product, chances are all these happen due the communication mishaps between the servers of the Redmond-based tech giant and Apple.
