    Could anybody help me I have just got the Galaxy Fame and I keep clearing my emails but after a while old emails I had on my pc keep coming back in and then I clear them again. Is there something else I should do on my phone that I am not doing to stop this from happening. Thanks. Just started learning with a smartphone.:)

    This also happened to me as well. You need to log into your emai provider directly rather than through the phone. For example: If you have yahoo email address you will need to go to the website and delete from there. Once you delete it will not show on your phone. Good luck!

    When accessing from the phone you are actually getting your emails , through an app, directly from your email provider. Thats why you have to set it up for the first time from the android app. I hope this clears things abit.

    Thanks very much for your help. I did delete my old e mails from my pc yesterday but this morning when I put my phone on again they were back.

    You don't need to clear them. They'll just reflect what you have on your email account.

    Will I just have to make sure I do not have too many e mails in my inbox on my pc so that that they are not all showing on my phone. I am not always the best at cleaning up my inbox. Hard when you are older and trying to keep up with technology. Thanks for your help.

    You do a refresh on your phone in your email app or log off completely from your phone.
    If you phone is on standby it will not refresh by itself.

    Think I have problem solved. Thanks for all your help :)
  8. Hi,

    It also depends on the type of protocol that your email is using:

    If the mail runs on POP, then you will have to delete the email from your PC
    If the mail runs on IMAP, then you can also manage your mail direct from your phone.

    That information is available from the hosting data.
