Why does my old email become new again?

  • Posted: 16 November 2011 06:19 PM

    Have an iPhone 4s here on iOS 5.

    When I delete a bunch of email from my inbox, iOS then refills it with older mail (shows 200 recent messages.)

    The problem is that the notification center then shows this old mail coming in like it is new. It even lists older mail from last week before new mail from last hour. This is very distracting and confusing to have old mail which is already marked read show in the notification center as new.

    Does this bother anyone else? Is there a setting to avoid this?

    TIA!
