    It's probably because you're syncing all of your mail.

    Go into the mail app, then edit your accounts. Go into the "change mailbox sync settings" screen on each account and decrease the "download email from" duration. On my phone, I only sync from the past 7 days (you can still search for older emails if you want).

    When you've done this, just hit the sync button and you should find you'll recover storage space after a short wait.
