    I'm new to forums so hopefully I'm asking this question in the correct way. I cannot find the answer to this.
    If I swipe to the very first "page" for lack of a better word and put any letter in the iPad search NOT safari my mail pops up and I can read deleted messages from my email. I do not want people seeing my emails and I can find no way of erasing this search engine saved mail. It's been deleted from my mail for some time but is showing up in the search engine. I had to completely erase my iPad account and start over to remove my mail. I've cleared safari but this seems to do nothing on the iPad area search. Again now I can see the little mail icon and all of my new private emails are there for anybody to read who types in this area of my iPad. This is a huge security issue for me. Any help would be very appreciated. I hope my question is understood :)

    Check your mail settings as they could be in the trash folder. Also, if you're using gmail you may need to change settings to go from archive to delete.
