emails keep showing up on my iphone after being deleted

I delete emails on my iphone as well as on my mac at home. my email is POP with optimum online.

Why do older emails ( from days ago ) keep showing up on my iphone even after they are delete on both ?

Make sure your computer is deleting them from the server. Barring that, contact your ISP, because they are not deleting your messages when requested.

I had that problem with my gMail. I set it up using IMAP instead of POP and it works fine now. When I delete them from either my phone or computer, it shows accordingly on the other. Hope this helps.
