Questions and Answers

I need to stop my e-mails from coming into my cellphone?

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.

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:

Good evening Daniel. I installed Hotmail on my phone, but for the past 3 weeks I haven't been able to get emails, unless I log in to MSN?
