Thanks for the prompt response. The thing I hadnt done was to delete my email account, so i did that and woe and behold it's gone. But now i have another problem when I set up the emal account again it keeps churning out the same emails that have come in from yesterday and today. Do you know of any way to stop this? I tried deleting, then emptying trash, the moving to trash, and deleting trash too. By the way, how do i root the phone? You don't sound as if that's a happy alternative.
Once again, thanks for the quick response. Sharon
