  • I have a Huawei P 10 lite. All of a sudden I seem to have 2 inboxes. The one I go to, when pressing the mail symbol contains older mails, but if I go to the view of all boxes I can press the inbox, and go to an inbox which contains the new mails. Maybe I should delete my account and set it up again?? Kind regards
