Default [Q] Cannot delete mail app data

No sure if it's related but after a recent cwm restore I soon received the "low on Storage" notification. Went to my apps, sorted by size, and was surprised to see my mail app at 60+ mb when there's hardly 1mb in emails. Unable to delete data, tried force-close, even removing all accounts (1) did not solve the problem.

Suggestions?

Rooted running Synergy and x99's kernel.

Wiping cache and dalvik calche didn't work. Had to revert to factory reset, which worked, but had to set up everything again - .

From your home screen press menu, settings, applications, manage applications. Select the "all" tab. Find email and wipe data. Now if your still getting a low storage warning like many others have, then it's probably the type of apps2sd the rom is using.

Tried deleting data from "manage applications" to no avail. As stated above, however, I've since found a solution to my issue. I didn't want to do a factory reset but it worked and it wasn't too much trouble to get it set up again.
