    I switched over to a new iPhone 4 last night. Today I keep seeing unread messages in my Inbox that ahve no subject, no sender, no content and are showing the date 12/31/69. They aren't coming in at the top of my inbox, it's almost like it's converting old messages.

    Any idea what might be causing that?

    I saw some as well. They had no subject but not sure about date. I was thinking that they just did not complete or something. Not sure if they just went away or I deleted them. I recommend you login to mm on the web since that is the master copy.

    Solution!!

    had same issue with my mobile me email on iphone as well

    solution

    open mail on iphone

    hold power button till slide to turn off comes on

    then let go of power button and hold home button down till iphone goes back to home screen

    this force quits or resets mail, the email issue is resolved when you relaunch app

    I had this issue, all of the emails send No Sender as well.

    This was for a Gmail account. I ended up deleting the account on the iphone and set it back up.

    I keep getting this as well.

    Gmail account.

    easier way to fix:

    Double tap home button (brings up multitasking pane)
    Tap and hold one of the open apps (enabling app kill)
    Kill mail app
    Tap home button once
    Reopen Mail


    EDIT: Anecdotal observation... It seems to only happen on Facebook update emails.

    Mine seems to have cleared on its own. I think maybe it was some kind of sync issue between my new phone and MM. About 14 hours after setting up my phone all was normal. I didn't do anything to fix it, it cleared itself.

    I spoke too soon. Happened to me again. I restarted my phone and it cleared, but I'm not sure what causes it.

    I'm having this problem as well. I posted on the Apple Support site last night along with a bunch of other people. I'm getting between one and four of these emails a day. It's particularly frustrating because I can neither open the emails nor delete them. Sometimes if I turn it off and then on they go away.

    I had that issue when I first updated my iPhone 3G to iOS4, but it fixed itself somehow within a few hours and I haven't gotten a similar email since.

    This is a bug in iPhone 4.0 software, not MobileMe - it happens with Gmail and other email service as well.

    Yep, I have had that issue on my original iPhone but none since I got my iPhone 4, which I love...:)
