    Unhappy Delete Email?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone. Currently the device is lagging very seriously. I am assuming that to be the case because I have 5,000+ emails currently on the device. How can I delete the email messages on the S4 without effecting the email on my MS Outlook on my desktop and laptop devices. I am afraid that if I arbitrarily delete the emails on my S4 that I will also lose them on the desktop PC and laptop MS Outlook programs. Help please?

    I'm guessing your mail is set up as IMAP on the phone, if so, there isn't a lot you can do othere than archiving your Outlook mail into an archive file, (not a folder).

    How do you delete emails from folders? If I am in the Inbox screen it shows "No emails".
    However when I go to the inbox folder I have 789 emails and I can not delete them.
    Same for Trash folder.
    The folder show 333 emails but the trash screen shoe no emails.
    Problem is phone will not down load current emails, saying no room!!
    Help.

    Welcome to the forum

    Go to the app manager and scroll to all. Find the mail app you're using and tap it, tell it to clear the cache. Restart the phone.

    Another possible option would be to remove the account then add it back. If it's set up as IMAP that would be a good way to go.

    Not sure how it is set up.
    It is a recurring thing.
    Delete the whole email account and then reset it up?

    IMAP is a way to sync all your mail in both directions and is the recommended way of setting up mobile devices.
