I have a mail account and my iPad keeps receiving emails from months ago and says I have over 10,000 emails yet to receive. How do I stop this and get only recently sent emails. Help it's driving me crazy,

    Using your account page on your email server, there should be a way to delete all old emails.
    I have mine set to delete automatically after a set time period. In this fashion, all received emails, whatever the device, are only recent mails.
