    Ok I have a hotmail account. A few years ago I bout an iPod touch 1st gen, the mail app kept sending me emails I have already read in hotmail.com, then a few years after that I bout myself an iPhone 3GS. And the mail app did the same thing. Now I have an iPad 2 and its doing the same thing again. I had never thought of consulting help up until this moment in time. Is there a way to either make it stop sending me emails I have already read, or is tuyere a way to like select all so I can delete them all really fast? Please help me! please... D:

    Do you have to have Hotmail? Can you switch to gmail? I have heard of problems like this with Hotmail.

    If you view them in the app, it won't be a problem :p
    Or make a shortcut for the inbox on your home screen and bypass the mail app altogether

    I think LSU means that your problem is that you are using hotmail ;)

    The problem is not Hotmail, but rather a limitation of the POP protocol. Just follow these instructions to setup the hotmail mail as an exchange account:

    http://www.iphonehacks.com/2010/08/...d-touch-for-push-email-calendar-contacts.html

    In case you are wondering, why Mail redownloads already read emails, it is because with POP, the mail app simply downloads mails, but has no way of talking back to the server, to inform it, whether you read the email, moved it to another folder, deleted it, etc., it can only download emails and send emails, but is unable to synchronize with the emailserver. With the above linked setup, this will be a thing of the past, as it does a full synchronization of all your email folders.

    I used to have hotmail, and I don't anymore. It was terrible. About 3 days a week it wouldn't even let me sync emails. Fail. Switched to gmail, and love it! Works awesome. Of course, google is better than Microsoft. :)
