I just got my iphone yesterday and thought that the mail account would be like my macbook. I can delete all my macbook mail and it still will show on the Gmail site. With the Iphone, I guess it deletes both. Anyway, I deleted 100 or more at a time and the Iphone would go blank in the mail app and then show the mail I kept and flash back and forth before going back to the home screen. Is that a normal thing? Was I doing too much? Also, when you delete all contents of the trash the bottom had a progress bar that said downloading? Thanks for any help.
