    have an android galaxy S3, ongoing problems with shaw email on phone. Have added, deleted, added etc shaw email account many times using pop3 and microsoft exchange servers (depending on what shaw support guy tells me to do). Email is now working on pop3, but old read and deleted emails keep reloading. anyone know how to stop phone from reloading emails from 3-4 weeks ago? Webmail on computer works fine...

    Welcome to Android Forums and hello.

    If I'm right the problem is you are using POP3. I know that is what you used to get it working but, if I'm correct, POP 3 isn't bi-directional and will have these kind of issues.

    If you go to Incoming Settings for the account and pan to the bottom you should find an option for "Delete email from server". Select "When I delete from inbox".
