    Email Apps Question

    If you install an app such as Aqua Mail or K-9 and you set-up your email account. Then you uninstall the app, are there any file leftover that show what email addresses were configured to that app?

    I have used Root Browser but haven't found any.

    The only way I know of would be if you had backed it up with titanium backup, or if you restore a Nand backup. Basically you are looking for the data that was configured to the app. When you uninstall an app, that data is more or less destroyed. Some apps have the option to store your preferences in the "cloud". This would be an option as well, but only if you had the option and had chosen to do so prior to uninstall.

    That's what I was after. I just wasn't sure if there was 'lingering' email addresses etc hanging around in a directory on my device or if it was destroyed with the uninstall.

    Thank!

    Are you missing an address, or are you just looking to restore settings? Your deleted emails, addresses, email history, etc., should all be intact through your email account.

    Sheer curiosity. I was curious what was "left" (if anything) after an uninstall of an email app. I searched (I felt pretty in depth) to no avail, so thought I would the all knowing Oz moderators on here to check my findings.
