    Default Why do my old emails keep reloading in my inbox?

    This is getting real old. After I delete emails they pop back up in my inbox a few days later. Its done this once or twice before but stopped. Now its doing it again.

    Me too. I thought that I had it fixed but their back. Nothing like getting an alert for an email every ten to fifteen minutes. Especially for ones that I have already read.

    This happens for both deleted and filed emails. Something to do with the syncing out of the inbox. Frustrates me to no end, seeing that I love the stock app.

    Make sure on the incoming server options you change it to
    When I delete from inbox, the default is Never, so when you delete it off the phone next time it check email it sees it again if this option is not changed.

    Looks like the "change it to" solution in the previous post was either cut off or deleted by an Admin for some reason? Can you please repost that answer? Also, my phone is somewhat new and after looking around, I cannot find where to access the "incoming server settings."

    Thanks!

    I too have this same problem with my S3 and my Wife's G Note. I never had this happen with my S2. I have left my PC settings to leave read emails or deleted on the server for 5 days. I did this because of a Crash and many important Business emails were lost so now they will delete after 5 days if they are read from my desktop. But the phones I have used in the past never brought back deleted emails from the phone. So far I had not seen a fix posted for this. Maybe a bad update to the email Client? I have 6 Mailboxes on various servers to follow. Gmail is not the issue. Any good ideas?

    If you go into Settings/General Settings the second option is a check box called Swipe to Archive in conversation list. If you check that box you'll find that a right swipe will move the message to its designated folder. Note this is the case for Gmail on a Google Nexus tablet running Android 4.3. I assume this would work on any Android device but I can't verify that it will.

    For deleted emails that keep reappearing in your inbox, you should make sure they are archived or deleted permanently on the server. As for read emails that reappear as unread, I.e. showing you a notification of a new email, you simply have to increase your 'number of emails to load' to 'total' in email settins>more settings. Hope this helps!

    I made sure they were marked as read before deleting. After that had no returning old e-mails.

    So I have done some research on this topic and I am amazed that the number one selling android phone has this problem. In reading all posts for about a half hour I have seen no direct solution other that to set the phone setting to delete after deleting from inbox which may prevent the emails from reaching your PC. My wife and I both just got S4s. I have the primary Comcast email account and do not have this problem. She has the secondary and does. I have not read that there is a link between this problem and the primary or secondary accounts. We both have the same settings including the POP server.

    I have the same problem I think the problem is that it works this way.
    1. Your phone has some settings about how many emails to load. I can set it to 25 to 200.
    2. Emails are loaded from a primary server, in this case www dot comcast.dot net. You can log in there to see your emails. Once they are deleted from THERE, they will no longer appear on your phone.
    3. Emails loaded to your PC are generally downloaded and will be permanently stored there, until manually deleted. My primary email client is on my PC. It's set to delete emails from the server when they are cleared out of the deleted folder in Outlook. On my phone, it's set to leave them on the server. So when I delete it from the phone it's still on the server, and can come back when the phone email client resyncs. I don't quite know why it's not smart enough to see them in the phone's deleted folder so that it keeps reloading them. But key thing is they aren't permanently gone until deleted off the server. You should figure out when that happens for you.
