How To Delete Mail Cache On iPhone

Share This:

If you’re an iPhone user, you know how easy it is to accumulate emails. With a few taps, you can send and receive messages from anywhere, at any time. But while your iPhone makes it easier to stay connected, it can also lead to an overflowing mailbox.

If you’re looking to clean up your inbox and make room for new messages, one of the best places to start is by working on your email cache. The email cache is a collection of data that stores information about the emails you have received in the past such as the sender’s name, subject line, and even the content of the message. This means that when you look at a message in your inbox again, all the details are already pre-loaded in the app so there’s no need for extra loading time.

Fortunately, deleting your mail cache on your iPhone is easy. Here’s how:

1. Go to your Settings app and select Mail > Accounts > Fetch New Data
2. Scroll down until you see ‘Delete Cache’ then tap it
3. Confirm by tapping Delete Cache again
4. You will be prompted to re-enter your account information – do so accordingly
5. Your mail cache should now be deleted!

By deleting your mail cache regularly, you can help keep your device running smoothly and free up valuable storage space on your phone or tablet. It’s also important to keep in mind that this process only deletes cached versions of emails – it won’t delete the actual emails themselves so if you want those gone too, just move them over to the trash folder!

Clearing Email Cache

Clearing your email cache can help resolve issues with loading emails or other services associated with your email. To clear your email cache on most devices, follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your device.
2. Select the Apps or Applications section, depending on your device.
3. Find and select the app associated with the email account you want to clear the cache for (e.g., Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail).
4. Tap Storage & Cache and then Clear Cache to delete the temporary data stored in this app’s cache.
5. Repeat Steps 3-4 for each email account you wish to clear the cache for.
6. Restart your device to ensure all changes have taken effect and begin using your email as usual!

Cleaning the Mail App on an iPhone

To delete emails from the Mail app on your iPhone, open the app and go to your Inbox. Tap Edit in the upper-right corner, then individually select the emails that you want to delete, or tap Select All to quickly select multiple emails. Once you have selected all of the emails you wish to delete, tap Trash or Archive to remove them from your inbox. You can also swipe left on an email to bring up additional options such as Flag, Mark as Unread, Move To, or Trash.

Does Clearing Cache Remove Emails?

No, deleting the cache does not delete emails. Emails are generally stored on the server of your email provider and are not affected by clearing your cache. Clearing your cache may help with loading performance and certain issues, but it won’t delete emails or other data related to them.

Deep Cleaning an Email Inbox

Deep cleaning of an email inbox is essential for staying organized and keeping your inbox free of clutter. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you deep clean your email inbox:

1. Unsubscribe from newsletters and other marketing emails that you no longer wish to receive. This will help reduce the number of incoming emails in your inbox.

2. Create folders or labels for organizing your emails. This will allow you to easily categorize and store emails for later reference.

3. Delete all emails that are outdated or no longer relevant to you. If an email is more than a few months old, it’s likely no longer important and can be safely deleted.

4. Set up filters to automatically move certain emails into specific folders or labels so they don’t appear in your main inbox view each time you open it up.

5. Block unwanted senders by adding them to your email’s blacklist so they can no longer send you emails in the future.

6. Use an automated email cleaning service such as Clean Email or Cleanfox to quickly delete all unimportant emails at once and reduce the amount of time spent manually sorting through them all one by one.

Following these steps will help keep your email inbox tidy, organized, and clutter-free!

The Impact of Mail on iPhone Storage

The Mail app can take up a significant amount of storage on your iPhone because it stores a complete offline copy of your emails. This allows you to access your emails even when you don’t have an internet connection, making it easier to stay connected and organized. Additionally, when you delete an email from your phone, the full copy is still available in the app, allowing you to easily restore or search for specific messages.
