This sounds like you are deleting from the device but not the e-mail server. Login to your email provider's website and delete the email messages you want to delete. Make sure they are removed from the trash/delete mail folders as well. The results should sync to your iPhone. There will also be a setting in the servers advanced settings that let you delete from the iPhone and will delete from the server when that action is set up.
