Ever since updating to iOS 4.2.1, I'm having a problem with deleted emails reappearing on my iPhone 3G.

I have deleted these emails a dozen times. They are also deleted from the server, so they're not being re-downloaded.

I have rebooted and reset the phone. I have deleted and re-created the email account. The emails keep coming back. I have about 25 of them now and they just won't go away, like zombies back from the dead.

My email is a POP account at (IMAP is apparently not available for this account.)

Any ideas on how to permanently expunge these deleted emails?
