    ...if you do a search you'll realise that this is happening to both iPod touch and iPhone owners since the 2.2 update. You're not alone.

    You can create a new folder on the AOL website by right clicking on the folders to the left. You can name it Trash and it will show up on your Touch the next time you access your AOL mail. You can then go into your email settings and direct your deleted mail to that Trash folder.

    Try this

    Go to settings, then mail-calenders etc
    Then touch email account you are having trouble with
    Then touch advanced and you should see trashcan listed
    Even if it is already checked touch it
    Then close it out

    You should now be able to delete your messages again
    This was affecting my wifes ipod touch with aol mail and the new 2.2
    Software
