    Default Emails keep coming back after deletion

    This is my thrid attempt - apologies for any duplication but previous 2 posts don't show

    I have my own domain and I get POP3 emails the domain-provided-email-address forwarded to my POP3-ISP-provided-email address. These arrive on my N5.

    I have the N5's incoming server settings set to "...delete emails from server when I delete emails from the device...". Despite this, emails get donwloaded to my N5 again and again even after I have deleted them from both the N5's email inbox (accessed via the "yellow @ card going into a white envelope" icon) and also aftre I deleted them from theN5's Recycle bin.

    I understand that POP3 emails are prone to "re-arrive" like this, but if I can just reduce the frequency that this happens, that would be good.

    Try heading over to the settings General settings>Incoming Server>Delete email from server> change it to when I delete from inbox. Now once you delete the message from your device inbox it will not appear over the Inbox again.
