Gmail not picking up changes?

I use Thunderbird (IMAP) on my Windows 10 devices and Gmail on Android to sync with BT/Yahoo account. When I move email from my inbox into folders using Thunderbird the Gmail devices used to (I'm pretty sure because I've never noticed this before!!) pick up the changes. Just done this today and my inbox has about 10 items in it in Thunderbird, when I check on webmail it reflects Thunderbird. On my Android devices the inbox is still full of all the email I have moved.

 

Any thoughts / suggestions please.

Hi.

 

Has, by any chance, the auto-sync been turned off on your Android? What happens when you force a sync with the server?

Hi again.

 

Never heard of the server with android at the start, if anything it's imap.mail.yahoo.com

 

The server is definitely mail.btinternet.com, the Yahoo imap server should only be used if access fails with the proper one - and only for BTYahoo accounts.

 

Make sure the port is 993 (465 for smtp) and SSL set.
