I own a Samsung Galaxy 3 and I sing my g-mail into it to seed my e-mail but now I am getting hundreds and hundreds of them

You just need to deactivate that email account on your phone. Go to your settings and then go to your mail settings and then click deactivate. If you do not want to deactivate and you just want to reduce the notifications that you get, you can keep the mail in your phone but you would not set push notifications for this. You only have to open your mail to know if you have new messages.

I want to reply to an email without the original message?

I want to reply to an email without the original message. I do not want to click new and type in the sender's address, nor delete the original message. Is there a setting?

Usually, the original message really shows below as you click on reply. However, it would also be rather easy to just delete those messages, so that it would appear to be a blank message only. All you need to do is just highlight all of the messages below, including the "to" and "from" fields and then just press delete.

The setting that you are looking for where the original message does not appear will depend on the email provider that you use.

How do I delete emails from cell after reading on desktop?

How do I adjust my settings on my Samsung Galaxy S3 so that when I read an email , either my corporate or Gmail, and then delete it either from my device or desktop. It deletes it on the other.

Example. I receive an email and it is received on my S# cell also. I then read the email on my desktop and delete. But, it is still showing on my Cell, and those not go away unless I open it and delete it from the device..

The reason behind this is simple. It takes a little time for your computer and phone to sync with each other. You will also have to make sure that syncing is enabled for your phone's email so that it will sync automatically. To enable sync, go to settings>accounts>email>account name>press menu button>sync now .

Closed email accounts can't be deleted?

Cannot delete

closed or unused email accounts on the Galaxy S3

All you have to do is go to email settings and select the "delete account" option. If you can't do this, turn off your device for a few minutes and then turn it back on. It is more likely just stuck that's why you cannot execute this command. Deleting email accounts is usually very easy and straightforward to do. If the problem persists, you may want to consider reinstalling your operating system.

If you are still worried about people getting into your emails when you lose or have your phone stolen, you can install the Mobile Security and Antivirus app from the Play Store. It has anti-theft features like locking the device or wiping the phone completely remotely that none of your info will be seen. Check the app here:

Having issues connecting to Hotmail from Samsung Galaxy S3?

I can connect from my computer to my Hotmail account. I can't connect from my Samsung Galaxy S3 to that account.

It could mean any of the following:

  • you have put the wrong password (double check this)
  • you have not correctly configured your Hotmail settings
  • you do not have a stable internet (data connection/WiFi connection)

Try again by making sure you checked the points mentioned above.

View subfolders on phone as well as desktop computer?

I have 2 email accounts synced with my SGSIII. The work account shows all folders and subfolders and I can access all my filed emails.

My home email (Comcast), however, only shows the main folders, not any of the subfolders I've created and use regularly on my desk computer.

I've tried a couple of the "fixes" I found online but nothing seems to work.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

The email app has two lists. The one is for easy access for incoming mails. The other list is for the actual email account. In order to see the subfolders, you have to access the actual email account list. Otherwise, you will only see new messages. The actual email account list will appear similar to how you would see it when you access it via your desktop.

I deleted the email app from my phone, is there a way to recover?

I need it back on my applications - let me know - I am not sure if I hid it or removed it completely but I can see it on the application manager to add an account.'

If you can see the email app in your Application Manager, then it's still on your phone - you may have just removed it from your home screen. Press your Home button and tap on the Apps icon on your home screen; then, search for the email app. When you've found it, press and hold the email app's icon and drag it back to where you want it on your home screen.

Delete duplicate email function?

Hi, I would like to delete the stock email app, since I have downloaded the Gmail app. I think this is now just fully duplicated, but it freaks me out when I hit trash can and it says "you are going to delete all files and email" warning. I only use the Gmail app, can you confirm I am doing the right thing? Thanks!
