I have an iPhone 6 on iOS 8.4.

My problem is that the emails keep getting set back to 1970 and are blank. This happens every single day and I have to wait hours for it too fully sync again.

I have tried reloading the phone, removing and re-adding the email, soft reset, hard reset.

This issue has been happening to me for the last few months and I've run out of ideas.

  • What mail app are you using? The default provide by Apple or a third party app? If third party specifically which one? Also what specific email service you using? Apple, gmail, yahoo etc? – Tyson Jul 17 '15 at 1:51

  • If you haven't alreay, I'd try turning off Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calenders > Organize by thread. Also you have a pretty specific diagnosis involving 1970, but you didn't tell use how you arrived it that, Where do you see 1970? – Tyson Jul 17 '15 at 14:39
  • i see it over the whole mailbox every email changes to 01/01/1970 No sender no subject this message has no contents – ben950 Jul 21 '15 at 7:16
