There's nothing new about it and it STILL remains on 3.0.1 firmware. I have a 3GS 32GB iPhone and the Spotlight Search has always been showing deleted e-mails without crashing or anything else. I hope Apple fixes that soon.

this is very interesting. Im assuming that if you were to restore your device, the messages wont be there, or will they?

maybe if you change the settings so that the trash is saved on the server and not the iphone, you wont get this problem, but i dont know

Just proves my point. Apple need to spend more time making this thing work and work right instead of limiting functionality and usage.
