I’ve never been a big fan of overpriced Apple products, but this one takes the cake.

My iPad shows that all my apps combined take up 44GB out of the total 256GB of available storage.

It also tells me that my email app alone uses 194GB of space.

Perhaps those proficient in iMath can explain. 😀

Sure, you apparently have lots and lots of emails with many having attachments of various sizes - photos and the like.

You're good with IMath. His question as to why his email app alone uses 193GB yet the entire IPad only uses 43 GB.

Not sure of the equation that Apple uses but if you have 193GB of E-mail...You need to start deleting or downloading and storing off site a few of those E-mails. Specifically the ones from say...5 years ago and further.
Just saying

The same email accounts on my iPhone take up only about 7 GB.

I have 4 gmail accounts. All are limited to 15 GB of storage, and I’m not maxed out on any of them.

The email is probably on a server and probably has a very large cap on storage. You should Google your email provider and see if there is a limit. As for why the high number, probably attachments like many pictures. You can tell just by looking at your email to get an idea of how many attachments you're saving. Also an idea. Do you delete your sent email. If you're sending many attachments and not deleting, they will accumulate storage.

If one has emails stored in "folders" on the server, they count in the total also. ALL emails, not just those received (inbox).

It is not an issue of accumulated messages; or a server issue. See attached the usage for each of my 4 gmail accounts, according to Google. They add up to the approx 7 GB shown on my iPhone. In any case, the 4 accounts should max out at 60 GB, since Google allocates a max of 15GB to each account, regardless of the number of messages, folders, or servers.

Just trying to figure your "194Gb" on your phone......

Sounds like a corrupt file is causing an issue.

Just call Apple and ask. While generally an Android person, I've always been impressed by Apples support when needed for other products, like my iPad

Reminds me of the Windows dialog that appears when copying or moving files. Once, at work, I watched the dialog count down from 10 minutes to 10 seconds to 243 days. Some things never work right.

The body of your emails stores in the cloud. On your phone is only the heading. When you click on it, the body of the message is then downloaded.
