Delete sent email.

I need to delete the fact that I have forwarded an email. I went to the sent folder and deleted it there but it never showed up in the trash can. Any idea why?

Do you have your email configured to Trash or Archive?

Did you allow all of the deleted emails to download into the trash? Did you try resfreshing the trash by pulling down from the top on the preview pane? When you delete an email, it goes to the chronological order in the trash. If you have 30 emails in the trash all dated today, and the email that you deleted was dated last week. It will be the last email in the trash.

egol, I didn't refresh. I only deleted the one sent message.

The trash box only had a few emails in there. But not the one I deleted.

Go to Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendars> select your account there> Account> Advanced> Deleted Mailbox> and see if Trash (or Archive) is selected.

I don't have the device here. If it is archived.......where does it get archived?

I Know that this is an option in some email accounts, like Gmail for instance. But isn't it one or the other? Can you enable both Archive and Trash at the same time?

Edit - I stand corrected. It is possible for both to appear.

It's hotmail that was used. If the owner of the ipad finds out this email was forwarded it will blow a huge surprise. I really need them not to know that I was in there.

I have Yahoo and mine is just like you said, one or the other. I did not know if the OP had mail in Junk or not.

However I came across this post in the iMore forum before I posted, see the post by HankAZ. ??? Don't know.

All I can suggest is to log on to the Hotmail account from another device and see if you can find the email there. If so delete it.
