When I get that I usually remove the offending account on the phone and then re-add it back... Unless you are using the very old pop3 your messages should still be there...

Depending on your personal style of communicating your email provider, you can pretty quickly narrow down how you should use your email.

  • If you use check your email from a lot of devices, phones, or computers, use a webmail service or set up your email clients to use IMAP.
  • If you use mostly webmail and want your phone or iPad to sync with your webmail, use IMAP, as well.
  • If you’re using one email client on one dedicated machine (say, in your office), you might be fine with POP3, but we’d still recommend IMAP.
  • If you have a huge history of email and you’re using an old mail provider without a lot of drive space, you may want to use POP3 to keep from running out of space on the remote email server.
