    Hi,

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace on Gingerbread.

    I have had it for 3 weeks and it's brilliant but I did intially enter in a POP3 email account that I have and for some reason when I delete current emails it then downloads old emails which I had earlier deleted.

    I have gone into the Account settings on the droid and have selected to 'delete from server' on incoming server details etc.

    It's realy annoying as I get a bundle of 25 emails every time.

    Does anyone know how to get over this?

    Thanks.

    In gmail if I go to settings > Forwarding and POP/IMAP and tick Enable POP for all mail (even mail that's already been downloaded) it goes mad and does that double downloading for me. Maybe your email has a similar setting.

    I get that too, on my Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 with POP3 email account.
    Annoying.
    Let us know how you make out. Sorry I have not figured this one out yet.
