Hello and thank you for the question. What e-mail provider do you use (AOL, Gmail, yahoo etc)

Thank you!

We have our email through the company that hosts our website. Network Solutions is our email provider. It is a pop3 email account

Ok, which version of the iphone do you have and has this always happened or did this just start out of no-where?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Ok - this will show how little I actually know about his phone. I believe it is a 3G/ I do know it is NOT the newest iphone. This seems to be a reoccuring problem.
Expert:  Richard S. replied 6 years ago.
No worries. This is a odd problem and there are actually several different things that can cause it. Lets try the most basic things first.

1.Hold down the sleep/wake button at the top of the phone AND the Home Key. Hold both of them down at the same time for at LEAST 20 seconds or until the phone resets.

2. go to settings -> general -> reset -> reset all settings. Do not worry all your data will be the same but your settings will delete. Background picture, ringtone and brightness might need to be set up again

Once you have done those things, have him go and delete the e-mails again and see if they come back. This SHOULD fix it unless it is a server settings issue but if that was the case then it would happen all of the time and not just every now and then.

You can reply back even after you ACCEPT the answer, it does not close the question and we will keep working on this until we solve the issue for you!
