I cant believe this bug exists. I have 50 MB being consumed by my crummy Android Mail app even after I deleted the account. Now the "Clear Data: button in the manage applications section of settings is greyed out and unless I want to spend hours rooting my device to fix (with the potential of having worse problems) I am SOL.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem without having to "root" my phone.
Quite honestly tossing this crap OS phone out of a speeding car window and getting an iPhone sounds like an easier cheaper solution.
Why don't you just do that!
Yes the desire has a limited memory - not google/androids fault - blame HTC!
There are multiple ways around it without root, but ultimately root is the best answer and it really isn't difficult!
It sounds like you bought the wrong phone TBH though, best stick to apple and let them dictate to you how to use your phone!
To answer your question though, you need to make sure all folders have had mail cleared from them, my clean email [std. google AOSP] app sits approx 1.8mb
