    on my wife's Razr Maxx running ICS using the stock email app POP account( NOT Gmail)... she moved a bunch of emails from Inbox to Trash .. now she wants to move some of them back from Trash to the Inbox... cannot find a way to do this... am I missing something... I have a D3 and it can be done on Gingerbread.. sure doesn't look good

    any help appreciated.. :)

    With my email (Gmail)...you just "select" the email in the trash by long pressing it. Then tap the "labels" icon (picture that looks like a label). Then check the box next to "inbox" and select "okay." Now it's back in the inbox.

    It might help though to know which email she is using?

    she is using the 'stock' POP3 email account the Icon with the envelope with the 'red circle @ ' in it NOT the Gmail or Yahoo Imap account.. she has ICS ....I've tried just about everything I could think of.. long presses...etc...no good.. there seems to be NO option like there is in Gingerbread by a 'long press' on the particular email in the Trash account to get a drop down and MOVE an email to another folder.. I just find it hard to believe that they took a move backward in ICS

    Hmmm...sorry about that, but i don't use that email icon. I can't imagine that they would eliminate that option in an upgraded software version. Maybe your wife can go into her settings and forward all her incoming email to a new Gmail account? She will obviously need to create a Gmail account, but on my phone, the Gmail app works flawlessly...just a thought.

    have Gmail separate account already along with a Yahoo email account... the Pop3 account is her main 'home email' account .. I have it the same way on my D3

    I just thought maybe someone on here might know of a way to do what I wanted to do .. thought maybe I missed something...

    thanx :)

    I cannot see a way to do it on the POP email account either. I've looked before and see absolutely no option for moving it back. All I can suggest is to forward any that are in the trash to herself.....
    Also, I just saw another option. If you open an email in the trash folder that she wants saved, press menu and save. This will download it the the phones download folder...

    funny thing is.. with all these high tech mobile OS coming out with Jelly Bean to follow they disregard the basics like what I was asking about... thanx for the help... I tried every which way I knew before posting.. thought maybe I was missing something or there was a round-about way to do it.. looks like there isn't... the option to do it from Trash back to inbox is still there on my 'old ancient dinosaur Gingerbread equipped Droid 3':)

    With my email, a POP3 account, I open the stock email program, tap on Inbox and choose Trash. From Trash I tap the email(s) I want to restore after which 5 icons appear at the bottom of the screen (Trash, Move To, Read/ Unread, Flag/ Unflag and Select All). I choose the email I want to restore then tap "Move To" then "Inbox".

    Good eye! Yes, because there was only one email in the Trash folder the Select All icon didn't appear. Here is what it looks like with multiple emails.

    Ok, but where's the "move to" option? If I choose select all it just selects (places a check mark in the left box) all emails in trash. I can't see any option to move them. I can only trash, mark read/unread, and flag. (3 choices once select all has been clicked)

    The second icon from the left. When I tap that icon I get the "Move To" options.

    I did know that but since I haven't been experiencing any real issues with my. 211, I am waiting for the official update
    Are you saying the the. 215 fixed the OP's issue and brought back the ability to undelete or move trashed POP emails?
