Mail / Hotmail question

New here and tried searching first but couldn't find anything.  My wife and I just switched to our first blackberries (9530 with Verizon) and we're having some growing pains.  Many of them I can figure out but one has me stumped.  Last night (only had the phone for a little over a day), some really old emails (from hotmail) showed up on her phone.  Any idea why this would happen?  They were mostly old 'password request' messages from years ago.  Just curious.

Have you moved those old emails to inbox from any other folder?

I can't guarantee that they weren't moved (this is my wife's account / phone) but my understanding is that nothing was done to them and they just showed up as new messages on the phone....but they were still dated with the old dates.

Re: Mail / Hotmail question

It's hard to be positive since we can't see this. But, it has happened in the past that email providers and/or BIS have had hiccups, resulting in old emails coming back. This happened earlier this year and some were receiving hundreds of old emails, so a few doesn't feel so bad in that context! Basically, keep a watch on it and if it becomes truly problematic, let us know and perhaps we can suggest some further remedy attempts.

Re: Mail / Hotmail question

I had the same thing happen....an email I sent over a week ago to my wife showed up in her mailbox 4:30am sat morning...I'm not sure if it was a resend or a late delivery because I had since deleted my inbox and sent box....caused me quite a proble because she thought I was emailing someone from work at 430am and that I mistakenly sent it to her.   I'd like to be able to prove I didnt send anything....I wasnt even awake at that time lol....It showe up in my hotmail account online as being sent at 43oam but my BB had no sent messages.  I heard that Blackberry service was actually down between 2 and 6am...is that true...I guess that would prove it was impossible to have sent anything at that time....can anyone help?

Re: Mail / Hotmail question

Hey Yngwie77, do you have Veizon service? I do and last Saturday morning I just happen to be up at 4 am and about 4:30 I heard an email on my bb. It was a friend of mine. I couldn't believe that she would be up and then I noticed that the date was 9-22-09. It was a test she sent when she got her bb. I never received it until Saturday. I seen her later in the day and asked her about it and she assured me that she was not up at that time...lol. I thought it was odd, but no big deal really....Maybe this will help you out....

Have a great night!
