Galaxy S2 Email Issues

    Hi, ive searched through the forums and cant find anyone with the issue im currently experiencing.

    Got stock Galaxy S2 on Orange, not many apps installed and i use the stock email app to sync to two email accounts. For some reason the phone seems to pick up really old emails from last year, i select 'Mark as Read', but then after several hours or even the following day, up they pop again, very annoying. I cant see an option to 'sync past 7 days' or whatever.

    My only other problem is that the phone is way more sensitive to clicking on links 'within' emails. For instance, i get Groupon emails everyday, and when i scroll through the email (as i have done for months before) i now seem to accidentally select links and up opens the internet browser. Is this just me? Anyone know of a fix?

    Apart from the email issues, i really like ICS. Was shocked at the battery drain on my first use, but i ran it down to 1%, removed the battery, fully charged it and now get 2.5 to 3 days use, more than happy.

    Well if anyone else has this issue, the fix is pretty simple. I deleted all my email accounts and started from scratch and in doing so, i seem to have way more options to choose from, how far back i can sync emails, more flexible schedules etc, and emails now work like a charm.
