    My S3 has started resending all my emails over and over. This
    is costing me too much as all my data keeps being eaten. It started about 5 weeks ago (not sure if it was after software update). I think it must be the stock email app as the same thing has started happening with my tab 2. Is there any solution, is anyone else having the same problem.

    Is this the Gmail app, or the Samsung mail app?

    I am new to android and new to android central and this is my first post so this may or may not be helpful. To answer your 2 questions.....yes I was very recently having the same problem, I was receiving between 10 and 30 old emails at a time on my S4. My temporary solution was to clean up my email client (Outlook). I backed up, made copies, and deleted all old emails. I now only receive new email alerts. Hope this helps

    Sorry lanetop, after reading your post again I realize we did not have the same problem. Your phone was resending emails where my phone was receiving old emails, my bad. Told you I was a noob lol

    Hi Lanetop,

    Just wanted to report that you're not alone - my mum has just asked me to take a look at her phone which has been doing the exact same thing. Did you have any luck finding a solution?

    Out of interest, did you have any other email apps running on the phone? What kind of email account is having the problem (i.e. Hotmail, gmail, etc)?

    In my case, the phone was running the Outlook app as well as the stock email app, and the problem is with an Outlook account.
