Messages that were deleted have reappeared in my gmail inbox. I shall appreciate knowing why
this has happened. and how to get rid of these deleted messages without individually deleting them again.
gamil 'help' tab was of no use.

Thanks.

Are you deleting them from the gmail.com website, and then they appear again on the gmail.com website? Or are you deleting them off a mail client like outlook?

Did you delete email from the Trash?

If you delete from the inbox it goes to the trash.

BUT! If you click on All Mail it will show all mail and that means the same email if it is in the trash or sent folder.

Even if you view all mail and delete from there and empty the trash they return?

I can't think of anything else but others may know something to try.

Where are all the new email from?
Is it mail you want or spam?

There is no option to not delete before a set date that I know of so something is not right.

But first View your data and account activity in the Google Dashboard. Look also in the sent email to see if mail is going out you never sent.

Look to see when you log into your Gmail to see if they are really just you.

You may want to change your password if somehow someone got to your account. Will not hurt to change it no matter what.
But first look at or set up a another email account to recover password etc and if already set up look to see if it's still there and your account is right.

My mail account does not seem to be hacked. No one other than me has sent any emails from my account.

What I do not understand is why the goggle server still retains mail that was deleted, and how it got back to my inbox. As a whole page can be selected with one click, I was able to delete the unwanted mail in a short time.

Is there a way to contact google with questions?
