    What? Are you saying you have emails and you don't know how to delete them? First you talk about email address and then emails. Which one?

    Lol. You didn't make it clear you just want to delete the auto fill that shows up when you start typing. That's what you had to say.

    Yeah I already knew what you were talking about when you clarified it. I would assume you'd have to SSH into the phone and go to the MobileEmail part and see if theres a folder in there called cache or something.

    What you are referring to his email cache. I wish I had my iPhone dude. I'm getting a new one in like 2 days, I could have tried to help you out.

    If you can SSH into your phone go to application/mobileemail/and look around in those folders for a cache folder

    Hi all, for those of us newbies, please post details on how to obtain AND install the BossPrefs app ... as well as the JailBreak (jailbroken) tool!

    For example:

    Thanks in advance!

    Smile deleting email addresses
    What is BOSSPREFS and where do you find them? I have SO many email addresses that are not used any longer and I want to delete them. Please tell me how to get to this bosspref and what it is/does.

    SBsettings has really taken the place of Boss Perfs, it's available in Cydia if your jailbroken.
