    Recently I attempted to send an email from my iPhone (using my Gmail account). I think it was sent to my home phone number by mistake. Obviously the email can't be sent. The problem is that the unsent email is still in my phone email system and I cannot locate it for deleting. How can this be found on my iphone? Thanks in advance.

    I would think it would be in the Outbox if it couldn't be sent.

    By "Outbox" I assume you mean the "Sent" folder. It is not there, or in any other folder that I can locate.

    No, there's generally Outbox for emails that are trying to be sent. If it was never sent, it should still be there. If not, I would think that it actually did send, just don't know where.

    My email folders are Inbox, Sent, Trash,((Gmail), All Mail, Spam, Starred), Drafts, Personal, Receipts, Travel, Work. No folder called Outbox is available or at least that I can find.

    I'm at a loss then. Sounds like it sent, somewhere. But, then again, it should be in the sent folder. I think I have the Outbox folder because I have my accounts set up as Exchange accounts.

    if you're using imap gmail there's no separate email system on the phone. with imap it's just a view of what's on the server.

    Ok, once again I turned the phone off and then back on later. Probably for the 4th time. This time the message has disappeared. Inexplicable but successful.
