    Emails. Keep returning. I have tried everything and took it in to the apple store. They can not figure it out. Very. Upset. What next.?

  2. Alex says

    That’s because the iPad doesn’t delete the mail of the mail server. The device basically marks the deleted mails as deleted, chechks the server, and loads them again. You can delete them from the server using a program like outlook.

    I delete these messages using your method and the next time I sign on they’re all back. One message I click on seizes up the entire pad.

    Solution please
