    So, for the past couple of weeks my iphone has been doing something strange.

    If i get an email and then delete it, it disappears from the inbox. But if i then close mail and go back in again it is there again. It is not re-downloading from the server as i have already checked this - and the email is back in my inbox before it has even connected back to my mail server.

    This is driving me mad as i cannot delete any emails. I delete them and then they are there again - magically reappearing!

    I have tried deleting the mailbox - didnt work
    Restoring to an older backup - didnt work
    Wiping the entire phone and reinstalling the OS with the phone in DFU mode - didnt work.

    Im out of ideas - has anyone come across this problem before and did you manage to solve it?

    Thanks in advance!!

    It might not be your phone. It might be your mail account. Just my $0.02, and hope it helps.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply but i dont see how it could be my account. The messages are downloaded from the server, so there is nothing left on the server to be redownloaded.

    I am not sure what to do besides maybe deleting them from the trash or deleted folder they go to after you delete them. Sorry if I didn't help.

    yeah i do that, but they still reappear in my inbox!! Its as if my iphone is keeping a copy somewhere and just puts them back in my inbox because it hasnt acknowledged i have deleted them!

    I'm having the same problem. I've even deleted them off the main email account at home and they are still coming back. Now my trash box has disappearred. This is a Comcast account.
