    Mail storage use not decreasing

    Looking at my installed apps my mail is showing that it is using 108 mb. I don't have any mail in my inbox and I deleted all my attachments. anyone know how the hell to decrease that 108mb down to something manageable?

    I am using a stock Droid Eris with 1.1 installed

    I suspect the problem is that your email data and cache need to be cleared. Assuming you can do this as one would on a Droid, go to ManageApplications, select the email app you're using and clear the cache. You don't mention whether you're using gmail, but if you are, you'll have to filter to "all" applications and delete cache associated with gmail storage.

    I agree with Jsh1120,

    I had the same issue, and as soon as I cleaned the cache and data and everything refreshed, I was back down to less than 1mb.

    FYI this is on a Moto Droid using the gmail app, but it should be the same for you.

    The Mail app does not give you the option of clearing the data, and i cleared the cache on both the Mail app and the GMail app and it made to difference

    I do

    I have the same problem and can't clear data in the Mail application. Tried deleting accounts and it was still 80 mb of "data". Now I can't send or read texts until I delete an application, but I can email and make phone calls just fine.

    The stock email app has so many bugs, it should not be used. Use anything else.

    Open your "Trash" folder... I did mine and had close to 400 e-mails in there that I had deleted but they just go to trash. You need to manually delete each one... there is no "Empty Trash" button.

    I actually did have 100 emails in the trash of one of my email accounts, but deleting it didn't help. I went back to my applications and it said i had a few kb in cache, and when i deleted that i think the data being used by mail actually increased a little. I'm using an HTC Droid.
