    Delete emails

    I have only just discovered this site and it is nice to know that there is a site designed with iPad users in mind.

    I would like to know whether it is possible on the ipad2 to permanently delete emails. Although I regularly clear the Spam folder and then the Trash folder, the same emails seem to reappear in the "All Mail" box which currently storing over
    15000 emails. Is this taking up valuable space?

    Any advice would be welcome.

    Delete emails

    You could very well have your e-mail account set up to "Archive" mail versus deleting it.

    To fix, check in the "Mail, Contacts, Calendar" tab in your Settings app. Look on the right-hand side for the e-mail account doing this; press that e-mail's line. Hopefully, the next tab that appears should have a place where you can turn the option to Archive mail to OFF.

    Once Archive is off, your mail should delete and not show again.

    Many thanks for your advice. I could not bring up an "Archive" box but following your advice I managed to get to "Advanced" settings which appears to give me four options when deciding to keep emails. These are "Never, one day, one week or one month". I have reset it to " one week " so hopefully that will do the trick.

    Many thanks for guiding me along the right lines

    Oops, I spoke too soon. By tampering with the email settings I now have two "Trash Boxes" and no " All Mail" box.. Over 15000 emails are in both " Trash " boxes and although after pressing the "Delete All" button they disappear, they are all back within minutes.

    Is there no way to delete emails PERMANENTLY from my ipad2 ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What type of account do you have? Both the provider and the type of account (IMAP, POP, EXCHANGE) if you know it.

    Account is IMAP4 blueyonder.co.uk. Is this what you need to solve my problem?

    Actually I was kind of hoping you'd tell me it was a GMail or iCloud account, in which case I'd have a 'fair' idea of what 'might' solve it.

    As it is, all I can suggest is that you take a close look at your mail settings at the blueyouder site. It is possible that the email is getting archived automatically by the server, not that iPad.

    GMail did this to me for a while. Actually I'm not certain it isn't still doing it. Once I figured out that it was only taking up space on the server, and that GMail wasn't going to run out of space there, I stopped worrying about it; Gmail not being my primary account there's little there that I need to worry about.


    P.S.

    Meh, a quick check shows that GMail is indeed still saving all my email's in the All Inbox. I may tinker with it later and see if I can stop it. Not that this will help with your problem.

    I'm inclined to go along with you in that as the two "trash" boxes are on the server and the " All Mail" box has somehow disappeared altogether,to not worry about it.
    However I am meeting a friend tomorrow who also has the iPad 2 and I will check his mail settings to see how they differ.
    If I discover a solution I will get back to you. In the meantime, many thanks for taking the trouble to reply.
