Have you checked your email through a method other than the iphone to see if it truly is gone? The phone will only display so many messages at a time, maybe your previous ones are just "dropping off" the bottom of the list. If that's the case then they're still on the server, just not visible on the phone. You can view more by going to Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Show. Hope this helps.

    My phone was set to display 75 messages. The max I have kept in the inbox is 30. It currently shows 10, but if I open an email, it says there are 21. Where are they?! Important emails have dropped off within a one month period of receipt!

I'm trying to delete multiple emails on my iphone 5s. all the boards say to hit edit, then trash at the bottom of the screen.. there is no trash button to tap


When you want to delete all emails in one email account on your iPhone, you can follow the steps below.

Step 1. Start Mails app and go to the inbox of the email account which includes the mails you want to delete.

Yahoo email only going to iPhone 3G not going to computer even after I deleted my email accts from my iphone. Please help! Thank you.


If you are using a 3rd party mail client like outlook, mac mail - yahoo dose not support this for the free account. You need a yahoo plus account to use yahoo. otherwise they want you to go to www.yahoo.com to view your mail. apple made a special arrangement with yahoo to use it on there phones and now their computers. Here is the link to the website that outlines this.

Is this through the native email application or do you have a third party application? Also, have you tried sorting through your email on safari or a desktop/laptop browser?
I suggest removing your email data from the iphone and adding the email once more. That should work by having the iphone fetching the data and organizing it, trash and all. Good luck!

How do I empty my Iphone mailbox


Doesn't matter which folder you're in, it works the same - just hit "Edit" at the top - all of the emails scoot to the right revealing a faint circle. Tap the circle next to the message you want to delete and it'll turn red. There will then be a button at the botton that says "Delete" with the number of msgs you've selected in parentheses.

If you want to totally empty every message, you'll have to select each one and then delete them, but in the trash folder there will be a button that says "Delete All" at the bottom after you hit "Edit"

Cannot get email


This is a very common problem. Upgrading you iphone firmware if it's not current may solve this problem. Or try changing your address for the account from example@yahoo.com" to your yahoo id without the "@yahoo.com"

Otherwise the built-in yahoo option for iphone can be buggy:
  1. Delete the Yahoo account on your iphone
  2. Create anew account via Other option
  3. Fill in the usual user id and password fields
  4. Under IMAP tab set Host Name under Incoming Mail Server to imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com
  5. Under Outgoing Mail Server, in Host Name field set it to cwmx.com
If you have a very large yahoo inbox, you may have to do the following:

1. Go to your yahoo account in a regular browser on your computer. Makesure you're using the new version of Yahoo mail (the one that looks andfeels like outlook).

2. Create a new folder. I called mine "archive - inbox".

3. Select ALL emails in your inbox so that your inbox folder will becompletely empty once you move them (there's a box you can check whichwill select everything). I had over 5,000 emails in my inbox, so thiswould have taken ages using the Classic version of Yahoo mail.

4. Move all emails to your newly created archive folder. Go back intothe archive folder and select any unread/new emails and move them backto your inbox.

5. Go into Yahoo on your iphone and refresh the mail. This will clearout the old emails and download the most recent emails from your inbox.
