    Not sure about last 3 days but if you go into Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calenders>Show you can pick up to the last 1000 emails.....hope that helps.

    Hi Gabriel1, have already tried that along with restoring from old backups but nothing works; all emails prior to install of iOS 5 have completely vanished and it seems they are non recoverable Hence asking misterfudd for clarification.

    Your emails will still be on their respective servers, log into them and see.

    In my case it downloaded all the old messages because the servers were not marked as 'read'.

    Make sure your passwords have been entered. It appears as though passwords were not transferred. Once I put my password in all emails downloaded.

    Unfortunately they all downloaded as unread so I will have to click on all of them one at a time to mark as read. If anyone knows how to make multiple emails as read please post.

    I have three POP3 servers and thousands of emails, I keep the important and current ones on the iPad when travelling for work, trawling back through them all to find them would be a nightmare, it is ridiculous that this wasn't a warning message during upgrade, an apology would be the least to expect.

    Me too. Absolute nightmare. How can this happen? Apparently my emails older than about 72 hours were all deleted from inbox, the entire sent folder gone, trash empty,

    I have the same situation on iPhone also, I guess either because of the iOS update or the fact that I have enabled iCloud and maybe that has synced the issue to my other device. I really don't know the why, but am begging for a solution here.

    Many of these deleted emails were only on my iPad and iPhone (like the thousands of sent emails) and it was all very, very, important to my business.

    I have iPad 1, iPhone 4, pop email, windows 7 pc, ios5 on both devices now, and way too many issues to deal with now.

    Is there ANY type of system restore available to revert all of this back to where I had my email?
    Any setting? Any recovery? Any hope?

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE SOMEONE OFFER HELP HERE.

    my email issue seems to be that I cannot reply to any emails or send new ones without getting an error message that it is not able to send

    I now have NO outlook calendar... Only the outlook icloud calendar listed in outlook now. Anyone know if I elect to remove the iCloud fiasco all together, am I now going to be screwed because they somehow deleted my original calendar locations?

    I read this thread before upgrading to iOS 5 and backed up my email just in cased, but my emails were all preserved after upgrading. I have two POP3 accounts and several non-POP ones.
