    Getting error code -503 while deleting an e-mail from Android mail app

    I have recently set up an e-mail account through the mail app on my Android handset. As there were some issues with that account, I decided to remove it from the device. But, when I try to delete that account, I got an error message saying “Delete account failed – 503: Service Unavailable”. In what way can I solve this problem?

    As a first step, launch the ‘Settings’ app on your phone. Go through the options listed in that app and locate the ‘Applications’ option. By the time you find that option, make a single tap on it. This will bring up the list of whole applications installed into your phone. Navigate through that list and choose the ‘Email’ app. After that, press the ‘Clear Data’ button visible on the screen. Finally, restart the device and check whether the error has disappeared or not.

    ================================================== ================================================== ========

    Troubleshoot:

    =) First kill the email app on your device.

    =) And then run the email app again.

    =) Check it is working or not

    Otherwise clear the apps data and cache.

    =) First move to the application section on your android device in the settings panel.

    =) And then select the "manage application " in it

    =) Now there are many application is available in it , but for your app you select the email apps that you want.

    =) After that go to the "option" in it and tap the "clear cache" and "clear data" option.

    =) This will clear all the cache of your email apps OK.
