Anyone else experiencing this? I cleared cache, data, removed account, added account back, etc. This is not good. Any solution would be much appreciated.

Thought it would be faster than my phone. Takes about a minute or 2 to delete about a100 emails. I can do the same on my phone in a matter of seconds. Most likely i will not use the email app and just log into webmail. Got only 1 hit so far searching the web for this issue. Lots of glowing reviews on this device but only 1 mention about the slow email app. If it's just me I'll try a factory reset. Waiting to hear from other owners or Samsung.

reloads deleted emails

Another problem that exists. When you scroll up to view earlier emails and get to the last one it starts loading the older and deleted emails back. Also, although i have deleted my sent emails the sent folder icon shows that sent emails exist. Tapping on the folder and opening up shows its empty. This app is not ready for prime time. There are some nice things about this tablet and there are some bad. Bad are starting to outweigh the good I'm afraid after 1 week of ownership. My phone is much easier to use but i was looking for a bigger screen. This thing is giving back. Just typing this has been difficult. Keyboard on phone is easier to use or maybe I'm just used to HTC.

"Speed" is not a word I would use when talking about the native email app.

It has this slapdash get it done and out the door feel. BUT FIRST LET"S COVER A BIG THING.

These apps are from google and not Samsung. In prior discussions I've mused about how the industry has changed and Samsung by picking up Android and using pretty much unaltered means we get a new problem.

Who is responsible for fixing issues or bugs? Samsung didn't write it and Google has grown to a size I doubt we can change it now.

For example there is a known bug or issue in the message app but it's been there for over a year which is a very long time if you consider when Android came out.

--> I think Samsung and Google is the new Dell and Microsoft. Think about it.
