I read about the spotlight bug finding deleted emails. So I tired it and it found one from a long time ago, so I click on it email crashes, I try again it loads. I the. I then hit the home button and I go back to spotlight to look for it again and it's not there?

Anyone know why it disappeared?

I heard that is one way to "fix" the issue.

From Gizmodo (Uh Oh: iPhone OS 3.0 Doesn't Fully Delete Your Emails (UPDATED) - iphone security - Gizmodo

Richard from 148Apps has this workaround, which seems to work fine:

From my messing around with email, the message actually disappears after viewing it a few times. At first I thought the email disappeared after deleting it a few times but I simply viewed the messages about 3 or 4 times and it disappeared.


The difference here is he said he had to view it a few times for it to disappear, but maybe b/c your email was old it only took 1 time?
