The issue seems to affect both the iPhone and iPod Touch. In a video demonstration on YouTube, a man named Matt Janssen demonstrates how to recover e-mail messages even after they have been deleted from the user's in-box and trash file. Using a second-generation iPod Touch with the 3.0 software, he was able to view messages that were months old despite them having been deleted.
"These messages are still on the iPod somewhere even after you delete them, but you can't find them without searching for them," he said.
