I have an Outlook email account on my iPhone 5. During setup it automatically places this account as a POP account (no option for IMAP). My problem is after I delete an email in the account (moved out of Inbox into Trash and then emptied Trash) the email continues to show up under Spotlight search. How can this be removed?

I know you can go into Settings and change the Spotlight search to not include email however this doesn't solve the problem, since the deleted email will still be on the phone.

When you say "an Outlook email account", are you referring to an email account on outlook.com, or email account provided by someone else that you usually access using Outlook for Windows or Outlook:Mac? –  nadyne Nov 5 '13 at 23:16
