    I doubt it's an iPhone/iOS issue unless yours is just defective hardware. If it's defective, take it back to Apple. They are as good as Nordstom's about exchanges. If it's not defective, then it's probably related to your email provider. Maybe try using your iCloud email or another free to account as a test case to see if they work.

    I highly doubt that this is NOT an IOS7 issue. Every iteration of iPhone hardware and IOS that I have used prior to IOS7 has had no problems with 'phantom' email. Now I have this recurring problem for my Yahoo!, Exchange, and gMail accounts.  Occam's razor. There is indeed a problem with mail in IOS7.  I can generally clean thing up by visiting Apple Mail on my laptop to sync things up.

    I have an iPhone 4s, upgraded to the newest ios 7 program. I use Comcast for my eamil. A week ago I was not able to receive emails, but could send them fine. I deleted the account, twice. This was no help. I addded a secondary Comcast account and it works fine. I added a yahoo account, this one works fine. My primary Comcast now receives emails, but they are a month old.

    I found a solution and its work for me , you may follow the below step -

    for SMTP setting

    HOST NAME - use your SMTP server provided by ur ISP /email/domain provider...

    user name : use same user name you have used in incoming server.

    password : use the same password you have used in incoming server.

    authentication : select PASSWORD


    hope it will work for you as well.... enjoy...

    I deleted and then reloaded my hotmail on my iPhone 4 as it wouldn't download emails at all today.  I now works OK and shows the new IMAP server as opposed to the old POP.  However, it isn't synching with my Outlook account on my PC so if I delete an email on my iPhone it still shows on the PC when I want both to be as one.  How do I corect that?

    I've had the same thing due to slow network.

    I'm sorry but do you know how this would work for other mail accounts like gmail or yahoo ? My accounts are downloading all of my emails, and they are showing up like 60000 on the badge ! My phone does not have sufficient space so it causes my phone to crash!!


    I heard that its because I'm on POP and IOS 7 no longer lets you sync for "x" amount of days. So what is the work around for gmail and yahoo accounts??


    If anyone sees this , PLEASE respond because I'm going crazy, my phone always crashes whenever I use any app!!

    Log into your email account on a web browser (on a computer) and delete them from the server. You shouldn't have 60,000 emails in your inbox anyhow; now's a good time to clean them up.

    I got at least a partial solution yesterday for my iPad Mini.  An Apple adviser suggested that I delete my email accounts and re-establish them.  After I did that, the iPad only downloaded 200 messages and stopped, rather than attempting to download all 20,000 messages on the server.  I hope this helps you.

    To clarify, I deleted the accounts on my iPad.  It was not necessary to delete emails from the server.

    I've also had this what I do is sign in and out of mail 2. Mark as in read and the reds threw my latest email and take my time so they've fully loaded or kept refreshing.  This works for me
