No sender 1969 iPhone emails. 1969 and 1970 iphone email glitch fix.

No sender 1969 iPhone emails. If you're getting this strange slew of emails on your iPhone, it's not a virus or from a hacker. It's an odd iPhone glitch that I actually just got. Hard-resetting your iPhone cures it. Just hold down your power and home buttons down until you see the Apple logo appear. Odd but quickly fixable. #1969iphoneemailglitch #newyorkcomputerhelp

It’s certainly an iPhone glitch and one of the strangest IT support quirks we’ve seen.  

One of the oddest you can say.  It’s one where you receive an email from a sender from the year 1969.  We’ve also heard reports from customers regarding getting 1970 spoof emails.  Talk about a “Back to the Future” moment.  If you’re from my generation, well, I wasn’t even born yet!  One thing it is not is a computer virus, an iPhone hacker, or any other malicious intent by others.  It is purely a glitch or oddball quirk, but totally correctable.  Don’t worry!

I was one of the lucky recipients of this 1969 email and wanted to share the iPhone 1969 email fix with you.  I wasn’t able to fix it on the first action plan, but with persistence, I was able to resume back to my present-day email year.

Here are the steps to take to remove the No sender 1969 iPhone emails as well as 1970 iPhone emails:

Step 1. Simple first step is to hold down the home button and power button to power off and on your iPhone.  Maybe there was some hiccup.  This quick fix did not work for me so I moved on to step 2.

Step 2. The next step is to Force quit Mail.  Go to the home screen->Double-press the home button to bring up the multi-tasking pane.  Find the Mail app and hold its icon until it begins to wiggle.  Then, tap the small red circle in the upper-left corner of the icon to quit it.  Relaunch Mail and the odd 1969 messages should be gone.  This worked for me!

Step 3. For those who didn’t jump for joy after step 2, you can try to turn off threading.  Go to Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars and turn off “Organize by Thread.”  This is the last way you can prevent these phantom 1969 messages from appearing.

Hope this works for you.  If not, you may have to resort to backing up your iPhone and starting fresh by resetting your iPhone.  If you need further support, you can always contact a local Apple iPhone expert who can assist.

  1. Hard reset did not work for me. This email is still in my inbox. Have also tried turning off mail in settings and more. Most annoying thing is that it remains unread no matter what I do. This is why I want it gone! Any other suggestions?
