    I've set up email on my S4 Mini and don't seem to be able to delete emails from it. When an email arrives I delete it and 15 minutes later (they're being pushed every 15 minutes) it arrives back. I can't find a 'delete from server' setting as there was on my iPhone. Any suggestions/help please?
    Cheers

    You probably said "never" delete email from server. Try this. 1. Press Email.
    2. Enter email address

    Key in your email address.
    If an email account has been created already, do the following instead:
    Press the Menu key.
    Press Settings.
    Press Add account.
    Key in your email address.


    3. Enter password

    Press Password and key in the password for your email account.
    Press Next.
    If the display tells you that your email account has been set up, follow the instructions on the display to select more settings and finish the setup.
    4. Select server type

    Press POP3 account.
    5. Enter username

    Press the field below "Username" and key in the username for your email account.
    6. Enter incoming server

    Press the field below "POP3 server" and key in the name or the IP address of your email provider's incoming server.
    7. Turn off encryption of incoming email messages

    Press the drop down list below "Security type".
    Press None.
    8. Enter incoming port

    Press the field below "Port" and key in110
    9. Turn deletion of email messages on server on or off

    Press the drop down list below "Delete email from server".
    Press Never or When I delete from Inbox.
    Press Next.

    I've just discovered that you can't permanently remove/delete an email unless you have first opened or read it. In other words the number on the email envelope indicates the total of unread messages. As you read them, the number shown reduces.

    That doesn't make any sense. You can often tell from the address/title that you don't want to read an email. What email client are you using?
