  • The message could not be moved to the mailbox trash - Exchange Account

    Hi All,
    Not sure if it has anything to do with the update.
    Mail shows 1 unread message all the time, I've read it, still shows unread. I try to delete it and get the error "the message could not be moved to the mailbox trash", same error if I try to move it to the trash folder.
    Message has been long deleted from my actual INBOX via Outlook weeks ago.
    I've seen the suggestions to touch the trash settings under MAIL > Advanced, but there is no such option for Exchange accounts.

    I found an answer that has worked for me and others in another thread. It sounds pointless but just do it, all of a sudden I can delete mail now.
    1. Go to Settings
    2. Mail, Contacts, Calendars
    3. Click your email adress.
    4. Scroll down and click "Advanced"
    5. Click "Deleted Mailbox"
    6. Click "Spam" (at the bottom) then back to "Trash" (at the top).
    That's it. It should now work again.

  • TS3899 My email on my iPhone won't allow me to trash old messages -- I get "unable to move message" "message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash"  I have restored to factory settings, asked AT&T about it (no help).

    my iphone won't allow me to trash old email messages -- I get the little window that says "Unable to Move Message -- The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash." AT&T can't help me -- no one else has this problem, even though we're all on the same server from my company. I have restored to factory settings, but it didn't help. My email account settings are correct, the same as on my computers, and I can trash old messages on them.
    What do I do now?

    I have had a similar problem recently and followed advice here. Specifically, I used the brute force approach. As suggested by this site, I strongly urge you to backup your mailbox before trying this fix - just to be on the safe side.

  • IPhone 4 will not delete 'trash' ... "Unable to Move Message ... The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash"

    I cannot empty my 'trash' ... it comes up with ... "Unable to Move Message ... The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash"
    I went into Settings > Mail > 'my account' > advanced > deleted mailbox > Trash (On My iPhone) ... it appears to delete a few items only ... I may try to individually delete 30 items and only 4 go ?  help please ...

    I have the same problem and there is no advanced option. Was this removed in the upgrade to ios 5? I have been chasing a solution to this and the fact I have various duplicate emails appearing in my work account for days now! It seems like I may have to delete my account and re-install. This appears to be a common problem, where is Apple's fix for it?

  • HT1668 I get the "Unable to Move Message. The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash". whenever i try deleting from my ipad 2. I am unable to delete from Trash...HELP

    I get the "Unable to Move Message. The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash". whenever i try deleting from my ipad 2. I am unable to delete from Trash...HELP!
    Additional info...I am trying to delete these emails from a Webmail address. the Trash currently has 11 messages and they arent being deleted.

    Try turning the account off and on : Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars , then tap the account on the right, slide Mail to 'off', exit settings and go back into the Mail app, and then go back to Settings and slide Mail back to 'on'
    If that doesn't work then try closing the Mail app via the taskbar : from the home screen (i.e. not with the Mail app 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of the Mail app to close it, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    Another option is a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.
    If you still can't delete them then go into Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars,  select the account on the right-hand side of that screen, select Account, then Advanced, Deleted Mailbox, and under On The Server tap the 'Trash' folder so that it gets a tick against it - then come out of that series of popups by tapping on the relevant buttons at the top of them and then see if you can delete emails.

  • Why the following error message "The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash".

    Why do I see the following error message?
    "Unable to Move Message. The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash".

    Try closing the Mail app via the multitasking bar and see if you can delete them when you re-open the app : double-click the home button to open the taskbar and then swipe or drag the Mail app's 'screen' up and off the top of the screen to close it, and click the home button to close the taskbar.
    If that doesn't fix it then try going into Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Then select the account on the right-hand side of that screen, select Account, then Advanced, Deleted Mailbox, and under On The Server tap the 'Trash' folder so that it gets a tick against it - then come out of that series of popups by tapping on the relevant buttons at the top of them and then see if you can delete emails.

  • "The message could not be moved to the mailbox Archive" - iPhone 6

    I have an iPhone 6 using the standard email app for my work (we use gmail apps), now using the latest iOS 8.1
    When I try to swipe to Archive, it doesn't work and says: "Unable to Move Message. The message could not be moved to the mailbox Archive"
    If I switch to 'Delete' instead of 'Archive' it deletes it, but I want to archive. It used to work, yet even before I upgraded my phone and iOS, it's started happening a month or so ago.
    I used to never have this issue but it's relatively new. I've tried deleting and reinstalling my mail account and nothing works.
    Help please.

  • 'The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash' message when deleting

    Hello,
    I have a 3G and after upgrading to iOS4, whenever I delete messages from an Exchange mailbox on my iPhone, I get the message 'Unable to Move Message - The message could not be moved to the mailbox Trash'. Odd part is that the message IS moved to Trash. I also have a gmail account setup and that one works just fine. Really more of an annoyance than an issue, but it's growing more annoying by the minute. Any ideas?
    Thanks

  • The messages could not be moved to the mailbox trash

    Hi there.
    I bought an iPad 2 yesterday and I just tried to delete a couple of emails but it comes up with the following message: 'Unable to Move Messages. The messages could not be moved to the mailbox trash'
    When you click 'OK' the selected emails do actually appear in the trash folder but when you delete them from there, the same message pops up and they immediately appear back in the inbox.
    I've searched numerous forums for a solution but all people seem to say is 'empty your trash folder' but it is empty. I've got the same pop3 email account set up on my iPhone 4 and that works fine.
    Any ideas? Thanks in advance for help.

    Yes, that's true.

  • Unable to move message, the message could not be moved to the mail box trash

    I have an iPhone 4 with the error message 'unable to move message, the message could not be moved to the mailbox trash' with 4 emails, I managed to remove 2 of the messages by marking them as read however with the other 2 i tried this and it just crashed the Mail app any help would be appreciated.

    Did you have Hotmail set-up with Android prior?  I did, and if you did too, you have the same problem, and this is how to solve it.
    From your desktop computer, the Hotmail (or Outlook) website uses the folder "Deleted" for your deleted messages as default.  On your iPhone, the deleted folder's name by default is "Trash".
    When I had my Hotmail with Android, it created a folder Trash for deleted messages, and it's creation was amongst all my folders.  So when you go back and look at Hotmail from your desktop, you will see a folder Trash, in addition to the default Deleted.  My Trash folder had all the emails I deleted from my Android.
    That said, with the manual folder Trash that was created, when trying to set-up Hotmail now on iPhone, because I already had a folder Trash, it conflicted with the default "Trash" folder it wanted to created, so it didn't create it, being the reason why you can't delete emails, because it doesn't have the defaulted "Trash" folder to go to.
    The solution is to delete the folder "Trash" from your desktop, uninstall Hotmail from your iPhone, and re-install, and it worked, the defaulted "Trash" was then created, alongside the "Sent" and "Junk".
