    Im stuck/confused... my wife filled up her phone. Most of it is pictures (5.0gb) - but the phone says mail - 2.4gb! So, I went through and delete 687 emails and emptied trash... it still says 2.4gb?? There are still some in the inbox, but no way 2.4gb worth. I have restarted the phone as well.

    If I do a backup/restore...will the emails in the inbox still be there (she would kill me if they were gone!)

    lol thats where most of the 680 emails where (going back to 2012!!).. with tons of attachments too - so I know the number should have gone down. a lot... so, the inbox is the only folder with any emails in it

    They shouldn't. But you may want to your email in a web browser and make sure the trash has been emptied.

    It might be easier to try removing the mail account and then adding it back (for the stock mail app).
