    Hey everyone I am new to this forum, and hope that I can help where needed. I have the iphone 3g that i got with the AT&T plan about 4-5 months ago. Since the new iphone 3.0 update I noticed something strange, can anyone give me some input about why my emails that I have deleted from the server as well as the iphone keep showing up in my search function. Some of the emails are from 4-5 months ago! Is this a glitch that will be fixed with the next update whenever that will be or will i have to live with this. Thanks in advance with the help!~Chris

    Emptied the trash bin, emptied the trash bin online through the server and they're still showing up, try it on yours and see what happens......i have read on the actual apple forum website that numerous people are having the same problem......

    Happened to me and you have to go in your mail and go to all folders Sent Mail/Inbox and click the refresh button and it will go away.

    I don't think you guys are understanding. When I use the new "search function" that came with os3.0 it shows me emails from 5 months ago that were deleted. My sent mail folder, trash bin, inbox, etc etc etc are ALL EMPTY. Even if I refresh

    Yeh I did and it does delete all of the old emails that aren't on the server or iphone, but that is such a hassle to do all the time......Hopefully apple will fix this glitch....
