    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I have a non-rooted DInc.

    My HTC Mail application looks to be 93MB. I only have one email account setup, with a total of 5 messages. I've deleted all trash and sent mail items...yet I cannot get the application size total to drop at all. I've cleared the cache too.

    Ultimately I know that this is causing the dreaded "Application Data Space Low" issues I have periodically.

    I'm just wondering if I'm missing a way to delete data that is getting "stuck" on the phone someplace and not truly being deleted?


    Thanks again!

    Did you go to Settings --> Applications ---> Whatever the name of the HTC mail app is ---> Clear Data?

    I have not, out of fear of what else may be deleted if I do. I'm not concerned about the handful of messages on my device. BUt what else will be deleted by "clearing data" in the Mail application?

    Don't worry.....clear it. This is what needs to be done in order to avoid the low space message. You won't lose anything important.

    Alright, data cleared and email account set up again. Application data went from 93MB to 3MB. We'll see what happens from here. Thanks for the help!!

    If you clear the data do you have to set up your accounts again as if you just started?

    Yes, clearing the HTC Mail application data will reset that specific application to its factory mode. So you will need to create your email accounts once again. I took digital photos of all of my settings before clearing the data so it only took about 10 minutes to get things up and running again. So far so good. If this process is necessary every few months to avoid the "Application Data Space Low" error, its time well spent for me. Good luck!

    Could you not just use K9 or some other mail app? I am on an AOSP ROM, so I use K9 anyway.

    It just seems like redoing everything every couple of months is too annoying to deal with.

    I use the gmail app and clear its data regularly....its not that big of a hassle.
