    I find that if I open up the inbox of a secondary account that is not very active, then go back to the principal account, it opens with the most recent message. Annoying to have to do that, but beats scrolling through dozens of emails. The suggested fix of deleting the 'stuck' email results in the next one becoming the stuck one.

    Apple: fix this!

    You could try going to Settings - Mail and turning on the option Most Recent on Top. This is for threads and I am not sure if this is applicable in your case.

    I accidentally found a 'fix' for this... well, it worked on my iPad Air 2.
    Open the mail app in portrait. Scroll to your latest email. Close the app. Then, each time you open the mail app, open it in portrait and it will open at the top of your list. Now you can turn the iPad to landscape and carry on a usual.
