When your deleting them from your phone and the boxes are checked for about to be deleted uncheck the important emails that you need; and delete the emails you do not need.

Why can't i delete emails?


This can happen if you use outlook, or a similar program, and have "keep a copy of my emails on the server" checked. It downloads your email from the server, but leaves copies of all of them there. When you delete your emails, they are gone on your computer, but it downloads again once you get online, since the computer sees it as a new mail, and not the old one you got rid of. If you don't want to change your settings on the mail program, them sign on to the online version of your email (www.gmail.com or whatever server you go through), and delete them there, and then when you delete them from your program, you won't have them reappearing.

I would like to recover my emails for march 2016


On what email server? If it's your company email server, talk to your IT folks. They probably have backups going at least that far.

If you're on an online email system, you'll probably need a court order to get them to provide your backed up emails.

Delete unwanted gmail that was added to my phone


When you open or select a message, you can use these icons to remove it from your Inbox:
2fc3e7ebca00a83809375c4e51c9b1bd5f3c Archive 52d35e0530874b7e970ee7ece8fdfb242d6b Delete You can archive and delete messages one-by-one or select multiple messages. To archive or delete all messages, you'll need to sign in to Gmail on your computer.
What happens when I archive or delete a message?
2fc3e7ebca00a83809375c4e51c9b1bd5f3c Archive removes the message from your Inbox but keeps it in your account so that you can find it later.
52d35e0530874b7e970ee7ece8fdfb242d6b Delete moves the message to the Trash where it will be permanently deleted from your account after 30 days. Messages deleted from Trash can't be recovered.
Gmail gives you plenty of storage space, so if you think there's a chance you'll need the message later, just archive it.

I can send gmail and have internet access, but am not receiving emails I know have been sent


It might be an issue with your SMTP servers. My mom was having the same issues on her iPhone with gmail. Receiving and unable to send. I deleted the gmail account then re-add it. Under the advanced settings in mail confirm the SMTP server is the correct one for gmail. Forget which one it was but you can google it. See if that does the trick for you. Worked for my mom.

Email deleted on the server still remains in my iphone


That's strange. Except if you have the iPhone email settings set to POP instead of IMAP ...
Without knowing how much you have troubleshooted this already, I'll suggest making sure that IMAP is ENABLED on ALL your Gmail accounts and ALSO that IMAP is enabled on all your iPhone email accounts.
If IMAP is working properly you should stay in synch, no matter how you check or delete individual emails.
If you have IMAP enabled on one of the Gmail accounts, you can still access it via POP settings with the iPhone. If this is the setup, then when you delete an email on the server, it will not be synced when you check your mail on the iPhone, but instead you'll just retrieve any new mails that hadn't already been retrieved previously. However, if you delete a mail message on your iPhone in this scenario, it will not "return."
Good luck!

Using Outlook on my pc - disappearing email on my iPhone


Hi, Possibly this could be the reason. Your iPhone might have been setup with IMAP connection, and Outlook with POP3. In this case, once email is downloaded by Outlook, it will be deleted from the att.net server. So, go to Advanced in your Outlook account configuration and Select the option leave a copy on the server.

Then you will have to delete all the emails individually from your phone too.

Thanks

Setting up Email Acct with Iphone


well to the first person unfortunatly the bellsouth email system is not yet designed to work with the 3g network so you would have to turn that off to use bellsouth.

Also for all of you need to remember that both Yahoo and AOL email work with the IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol. It is a method of accessing electronic mail or bulletin board messages that are kept on a (possibly shared) mail server. In other words, it permits a "client" email program to access remote message stores as if they were local. For example, email stored on an IMAP server can be manipulated from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the office, and a notebook computer while traveling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.

where as the bellsouth system is a POP system. what the means is that when you check your email client on either the computer or the phone it is actually pulling the mail from the bellsouth server to the respective devices and deleting the email unless you have both set to leave a copy on the bellsouth server.

and again the sending and recieving issues with bell south is due to the 3g network

Mail deleted from email server when it is deleted on the phone(blackjack)


When you delete mail from a POP3 account...yahoo, aol, etc. It sends a request through mail watcher to delete it from your email account. I have the same problem too. It does not even actually go to trash or anything such as a recycle bin. The only suggestion I have is to delete the ones you do not need, and keep the ones you have to read later on the pc.
