Things to Pay Attention to When Using the Mail App

  1. 1
    Check who you are sending the email to.
    If you have several accounts installed on your phone, it may be quite confusing and you may end up sending an email from the wrong account. Make sure you check the "From" field before finally sending out an email. It's also best if you will just assign a default account from which to send the emails from.

    Check if you are deleting emails by mistake.
    Since deleting emails may be rather quick for the mail app, it's quite easy to accidentally delete emails which are necessary. In this case, make sure you only press the delete button one time in order to avoid deleting the next message without you being able to read it yet.
