    I just updated to the new 3.0 firmware on my iphone (i know the site is ipodtouchfans)and when I search for email that I have deleted from both my inbox and trash can the emails still show up. I also comfirmed this on my friends iphone. I made sure to delete every piece of mail in the app and then delete it again from the trash. Still the mail shows up. This is a scary privacy issue! Can anyone else confirm this problem? Should I contact Apple about it?

    Edit: I attached a pic of one of the "deleted messages". It says it is showing "1 of 0" messages...

    It also searches from the emails stored on Gmail through the internet.

    So if you try so hard to delete it from your device it still shows in search. It's not a security hole, its a feature.

    Yes, I use gmail. I sent a message to myself on my device and deleted it (trash bin too) and the search feature did not pick it up.
