I have created an email account for a production team like this: firstname.lastname@example.org. Every team-member has set it up as an account on their smartphone using IMAP.
My problem is that when new mail arrives to the account and one of the team-members read it, it will be marked as read for the other members as well. So the other members phones will download the new email but won't display any notifications because it's already marked as read on the server.
I realize that email and IMAP is designed with a single-user-per-account mindset. But are there any work-arounds for this?
