    Does the ipad condense emails or something once they are sent to the deleted folder? From time to time I get this error:
    "This message cannot be displayed because of the way it is formatted. Ask the sender to send it again using a different format or email program. text/plain"

    The message viewed fine when it was received?

    Now, this is just what I think happens...

    The iPad is a mirror of what is on the server. The Inbox is the active mirror and it's linked (in some way) to the email server. So, when you move the e-mail to the Trash, you're breaking the link/connection back to the server, so the Mail app can't "find" the e-mail.

    Therefore, when I get that message, if I move the e-mail back to the Inbox, it shows up fine.

    Again, I really don't know the technical aspects of it. I just know that, so far, every one I've moved to the Inbox after seeing that notice has opened with no further issue. YMMV. :)
