    Is there a way to set the amount of time my S5 holds emails? Currently my phone email has them going back for at least 4 months and it's using up a ton of memory. If I delete them from my phone they also disappear from my web-based server (AT&T) that normally holds 30 days of emails before automatically archiving. I can still access deleted emails by doing a specific search but they don't appear otherwise. I hope I'm explaining this right but if I need to explain further please let me know. Thanks for any help!

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you using a POP3 or IMAP account? Use IMAP if possible, because POP3 is an older protocol and leads to issues like yours. Server Settings for Popular Email Providers- AT&T Wireless Support

    I found it! I was looking thru the app itself for a setting and it was actually something I had to change in the overall phone settings (under account settings). Fixed!

    Great! Can you tell us which setting exactly? And is it a POP3 or IMAP account?
