    Old E-Mails Re-Appearing

    Advertisement



    I have 9 email addresses on my Note, only one of which is a POP account. Why is it that old emails keep reappearing as new every so often? I generally delete emails after I've read them, unless they're extremely important, and for the most part, this inbox is empty. Old emails reappear as new, which drives me nuts.

    Thoughts?

    Also, is there a quick way to empty the trash folder in an email account?

    Settings/apps/all/email app (or gmail or both) clear data.
    You'll have to do the settings over. Alternatively you can try to just delete the cache only.

    Not 100% sure will fix.

    Had a very, very bad day so will look into further once home and settle it.

    Don't you just love it when you're up for a promotion and get strung along, only to see someone who hadn't posted for it get it? I know I do!

    From Gmail I can hit the icon on the left when I'm in, go to all mail then trash, open the folder then hit the 3 dots on the right and delete all.

    I'm using the stock email app. This is a POP3 account.

    Try K9 mail. I don't know if it will solve your problem but it'd be worth a shot.

    There was a reason I couldn't use K9. Didn't support Exchange 2010 or something? Maybe they've fixed that.

    That's one thing I definitely miss about BlackBerry......I loved having a separate icon for each email account.

    I do have separate icons one for the stock email and one for my gmail. So do you have more than one email account using the stock email? One the stock email I set up live.com and on that one I can check all boxes and delete what's in it all at once. I don't think it's a pop3 not sure.

    Roger, I'm sorry I just don't know. After today I can't think straight anyway.

    I did some research and this is a common complaint about the trash. The pop emails I haven't looked into yet.

    The NSA is hinting at you.
    I had the same problem and I gave up. I just closed the account. Deleted it outright. After 6 months I opened a new one with the same name, and that problem was solved.
