    Default Email Messages Not Sent

    Last night my android updated itself and now I get a message that I have 19 email messages that were never sent. Everytime it goes out to get for mail it buzzes at me about the messages - some of which seem to have been sitting there since last November. There's no option to delete them, I don't want them sent but I can't figure out how to get rid of them. The email account is off my business website account. Anyone know how to get rid of these? I see a lot of similar issues regarding txt messages but these are emails.

    thanks

    Hi RobertsMGB. I had the same problem. I found the following solution ( on askmefast.com ):

    Turn on Airplane mode. Go to the outbox in your mail and click the search button. Select the e-mail you want to delete and push the back button. It will say e-mail unable to be sent and will move it to the drafts folder where you can then select and delete it! Don`t forget to turn off airplane mode.

    The exact thing is happening to me - no emails sent from my phone in 36 hours. I deleted the "hung" emails but would love to know what's going on. I have turned the phone off and on, set and reset airplane mode, and reset my password - but nothing is sent.
