    hey,

    Is it a single mail that is causing this issue? Once you delete the mail, click on the Sync icon in the app bar at the bottom. When it says sync is done exit and return to see if it still exists.

    Since it is an outlook account I am trying not to put forward Reset as the solution. I searched over the internet also and as usual found nothing but this one user in BB having the same issue http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...delete-647819/

    Finally I say, Can you try a soft reset and you could read an FAQ about resetting (there is a question in this). IF this does not resolve it, you should talk with Microsoft support (I guess they will point to hard reset after backing up your data)

    I have suddenly started suffering from this too, I have junk mail that keeps returning. It's deleted from my junk folder and my deleted items on line. It's gone but my phone keeps retrieving it somehow.
    Resetting sync schedule cures it for a while then it starts happening again. First began about three weeks ago and won't go away.

    A simple fix that worked for me:

    Check the mail and mark it as unread. Sync your mail and it will vanish.
    I hope it works for you too!

    Did the op try deleting the email account from the phone and re-adding it?

    If it is the ms account on the phone you can't delete it, but you can uncheck the email option. This should delete all the mail from the phone and resync it after checking it again.

    This same problem has been happening a lot to me lately. Just in the past 2-3 weeks. Changed the Settings so that my Lumia 620 would not sync email. Rebooted, then changed Settings so that it would sync email again. That fixed it the first time. The second time it happened, I dug up the offending email via Outlook.com, moved it to the Inbox, then used my Lumia to move it back to where I want it. That resolved the issue, too.

    oh I read it all right. If you had worded your post to indicate you were the op instead of sounding like a helpful reply it would have been much clearer. Most of us don't memorize the screen name of everyone involved in the thread.

    I've been battling with this - 2 emails that kept returning when I sync. Finally tried the suggestion to mark as unread then re-sync - GONE!!! Thank you so much.
