You can customise the email account settings on the phone depending on how many emails you might want to download from your inbox.
First thing to try wuld be to go to Settings > Mail, Contacts and Calendars > Mail > Show > select how many emails you want to show, ranging from 50 recent to 1,000 recent

It seems they are emails that go back years !! on my old iphone 4 i didn't have this problem plus my incoming Mail Server was a "pop" Host. but on my 4s the only incoming server i can use is a "imap" Host? or am i wrong? could this have anything to do with the phone wanting to load 12,000+ email ..... ???

I found a cure for this problem ...... To stop my iphone loading old emails ( 12,0000) 50 at a time!! i deleted all old emails from server ... like in my case it was NTLWorld (Virginmidea) any important one just untick and save.... Easy peasy !!! now my iphone just loads new mail ...
