    Hello,

    Sr. Citizen now, and frankly not that sharp with iPad's, so please bear with me a bit.

    Have a few year old iPad.
    Have updated to the latest OS a while ago.

    Have totally cleaned out ALL of the Mailboxes.
    Every one of them truly shows totally empty.

    But-

    If I go to Settings and Usage, it shows 1.5 GB under Mail and Attachments !

    How can this be ?

    Is it (still) storing my old Mail in some hidden Folders, or... ?

    Turning unit on and off doesn't change anything; still shows 1.5 GB.

    I have the most basic unit, and it would sure be nice to be able to use this 1.5 GB for other things.

    Any thoughts on, or what I might try, would be most appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Have you tried deleting the account, then Setting it up again? This would have the account start over and should clear out any hidden cache of data.
