    Hey guys!
    I have an iPhone 3G iOS 4.2.1. I noticed a couple of days ago that everytime I open the Mail app the emails are redownloaded... It's like the email accounts are empty and the phone downloads the emails... It's really annoying... It started all of the sudden.
    I tried to delete my email accounts, restart the iPhone... But the same weird thing happens...
    Any ideas?

    "Yahoo" is not what I meant by "type of e-mail account," so I probably should have been more clear. Are they POP(3) or IMAP accounts?

    I've added the accounts through Settings/Mail, Contacts, Calendars/Account... and I have no idea what kind of accounts are: pop3 or imap...
    But after reading a little on Google it seems that iPhone uses IMAP to download emails from Yahoo ...

    And now I notice that from my Hotmail account if I delete emails they just keep coming back!
    I even went on my account from my pc deleted all emails... But they redownload on my iPhone...
    Hotmail is pop3 account...

    What the heck?
