HTC Incredible :: How To Delete Recent Email History From Yahoo Account?
Jul 16, 2010
Does anyone know how to clear historical contacts from the Email application. I'm using yahoo, I don't have Gmail set up on this phone because yahoo is my primary email. I've sent emails to 3 wrong emails. For example JoeSmith@aol.com, JSmith@aol.com, JoeS@aol.com but really his email is JoeSmith@yahoo.com. Now everytime I go to send this person an email, all 4 emails come up, the 3 in history, and the 1 in his contact information. When I type in J in the email recipient, all 4 come up, 3 say "history" next to the line of the email. I tried to add those emails into the contact, and then delete the emails, but that doesn't work.
I've went to yahoo to see if those contacts are showing up in history and they are not, so I know the historical email history is on the phone only. I haven't found a way to remove these items in history, but it's starting to cause problems because if I don't pay attention, I am choosing one of the wrong emails. Same thing is happening when I hit reply to ALL, 1 time about 2 months ago, and now i have about 40 emails in history and I don't even know who these people are, they are not in my contacts, and the phone is holding them hostage because I sent an email once. Does anyone know of a sure way to remove these historical emails?
If you don't know what I mean, give it a try, send an email to JOE@yahoo.com, and when you get it kicked back, the next time you try to send an email and hit "J", that JOE@yahoo.com will show up every single time, without fail. I've checked all historical settings on the phone, and even removed and re-added the yahoo account, but it does no good, the historical emails still stay in history. It's getting very annoying to have 45+ emails that you dont even know show up everytime you try to email someone something. Someone must have an answer for this, I can't be the only one that has sent the wrong email to someone.
I remembered from my G1 days a way to sync the E-Mail app up to Yahoo's free (not PoP3) servers so I gave it try on my new BH2 and it works just fine:Here are the steps: 1. Enter Yahoo ID and Password (hint, just use your "username", not the whole email@example.com 2. Select Manual Setup 3. Setup IMAP 4. Incoming server is imap.mail.yahoo.com 5. Port is 143 6. Security Type is "TLS (if available)" 7. Leave IMAP path prefix blank 8. Hit next 9. SMTP Server is smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com 10. Port is 25 11. Security is again TLS (if available) 12. Check Require sign-in 13. Verify username and password 14. enjoy To Sync up, you CANNOT be on WiFi (dunno why, maybe Yahoo has a deal with T-Mobile?).One other note: if after rechecking all your settings and it still says "invalid username/password" try going onto your Yahoo Account and change your "Location" to ASIA ! Weird I know, but for some reason, some people can't get this to work with US-English as their Yahoo Locale (not talking about your phone's settings here, all on Yahoo site end!).
So i asked this question before, but it was about the time everyone was getting their D-Inc's and it was chaos in this forum, and no one quite understood my question. How do we delete a mail address from history. For example, i emailed JoeSmith @aol.com (who is not in my contact list), and realized that it should be JoeSmith @yahoo.com, now everytime i go to send an email, starting with the letter J, i see both the yahoo and aol email addresses and it says "history" to the right. I tried the "history cleaner" app, and also looked everywhere, but i can't find out how to delete email history anywhere. This happened about 5 times so far, so each time i go to email one of these 5 people, both email addresses come up and 50% of the time i'm choosing the wrong address because i forget that it was input wrong the very first time. Since it says history on the right of the email address, i can only assume there is a history marker somewhere showing me all the emails i've sent, but i cant seem to find it. I want to get these email addresses out of there because i'm always choosing the wrong one, and because i have OCD and can't STAND the fact that there is a wrong email address there. I tried to LONG press, and thought maybe i can delete from there like long pressing a text, or a full conversation, but no luck. Anyone have any info on this?
just got my desire this morning and i don't really know what i'm doing with it, i've never had a smart phone before. i've set up my hotmail account as the email account on the phone but, call me paranoid, i'd rather not have it on there at all. if i delete the account on the phone will it have any detremental effect on the actual email account?
Just returned my hero for a moment but am not able to set up my yahoo email account. Anyone else have this issue? I keep getting a message that username or password is incorrect.I had no problem setting up my google email (duh!) or google voice but not yahoo email even tried to do it manually through the pop3 Any suggestions.will be at a conference the next 2 days and really need to access my email during it
Is there any way I can use my normal email acct to sign in(Yahoo)? I want to access my favorite videos from my phone but it can only use a google acct. Should I just re make my favorites under my gmail?
I have setup my yahoo account on my droid, and it is working, but is overworking. What is happening is I keep getting the emails over and over no matter how many times I delete them. I dont understand what I am doing wrong. It works but I delete the emails and they come again and again. I had to delete the account to stop the endless loop.
searched for this post and found this post a few times, but no answer. This if for the D-Inc btw, I emailed the wrong people a few times. for example i used JSmith@aol.com, instead of JSmith@yahoo.com, now whenever i try to email JSmith, i'm getting both AOL and YAHOO emails under recent history for email addresses. Is there a way to clear that ? it's getting very very annoying and i don't see a place to clear recent email history on the droid, anyone have any idea about that? Also, this is a 2 part question, how do we clear search history from google maps? I've tried to go to the app settings, but there is no clear cache, or clear data, and i've tried to go to security, privacy, and cleared data there, but when i search on Google maps, all the recent searches come up, which is not good when people can see where i've been
In the email app that came with my Sprint HTC Evo, I added my googleapps email... I then later discovered the gmail android app works better.. So I set it up there also. However, the email app still has my email account setup in it.. I don't see a way to delete it. I've held down the account, but no context menu shows up.. there's no delete function apparently.. I'd add another account to test with, but I'm afraid I won't be able to delete that either!
So my friend wanted to check his email and added an account, and I have since deleted the account. But now whenever i type in a username that starts with the same letter(s) his username comes up by autofill. Anyone know how to delete that without doing a factory reset?
I added a hotmail account to my emails on my Moment,, and now I can't figure out how to delete the hotmail account. I spent 20 minutes on the phone today with Sprint, then I must have driven through a dead spot b/c just as they were going to help me the call was dropped from my end. Anyway, anyone with instructions on how to do this?
Is it possible to download an attachment from my incredible? I have a yahoo account and so far I haven't been able to find anything on the internet or the other forums. Does anyone have any insight on this specific topic?
I am new to android and I recently got the incredible, love it! But when i set up yahoo mail (which went smoothly) it only brought up the last two days worth of emails from my yahoo account. Anyone know a way to retrieve all of my emails through my yahoo acct or is there a trick to it. Not a huge deal as I will prob move everything to gmail eventually anyway but would like to be able to access emails from months ago.
I am trying to get my verizon yahoo mail account connected with my dinc, but I can't figure out how. I tried typing in my email and password when prompted by the mail icon on the home screen and it says it fails. I also had an issue with certiain links on the web not responding when clicked anyone have any ideas why?
Is there a way to delete email from the droid but have it stay in my gmail account? I want it to be how the blackberry is set up were it gives you the option to delete out of both phone and gmail account or delete from phone and stay in gmail account.
