anyone have problems with emails downloading to samsung email app and gmail app.
talktalk emails don't appear at all in samsung app but with gmail they appear then when i re-fresh the app they disappear. I have noticed that when i logon to webmail all received emails since saturday have a line struck thro the recipient subject etc but when i open the email everything seems to be there. we have other email addresses used on the account and they seem fine

That's a very good illustration and my diagnosis, given that it's not an email client marking the mail messages as deleted, is that you have Filter rules running on mail incoming to the Inbox.
There is a Filter rule action to mark selected mail messages as Deleted. Which is exactly what's happening.
So, go through the Filter rules that have been set up, Select Edit and identify the rules that have as an Action 'Mark email as Deleted'

An explanation of strikethough messages seen in TalkTalk Mail webmail.
A 'Clean up' of a mailbox folder will search for, find and remove to Trash any mail messages marked for deletion.
An email client or app may be marking mail messages for deletion but then not deleting mail messages in the online mailbox. So, the Clean up option is there in the online mailbox to have a one-hit way of getting the folder's message count down by removing all marked for deletion mail messages.
Such messages will have strike through text in the TalkTalk Mail List view but will look normal in the Detailed message view.
On Deletion just Mark for deletion is a user option setting in an email client or app.
Deleted mail messages remain in the Inbox and what's normally expected is that if the user rescinds a delete decision during a session then the email client or app simply removes the marked for deletion of the mail message.
However, when the session comes to an end what's then expected is that the email client or app should trigger a mailbox deletion of the 'marked for deletion' mail messages. But if that doesn't happen those marked for deletion mail messages remain in the online mailbox.
So, if new mail incoming is being marked for deletion then it has to be acted on by an external email client that's perhaps auto-deleting mail messages.
So, I'd change the password again and this time don't change the password on any other mail app or service just so you know that the only thing acting on the mail messages is the TalkTalk mailbox setup.
Does my description above match exactly what you're seeing? If not then take screenshots because this could be a browser issue doing the text strikethrough.
Changing browser e.g. switching from Chrome to Firefox would prove it's down to the browser.

The strikethrough mail messages indicates that an email client has marked those messages for deletion. But the purging of the mailbox to remove those deleted mail messages hasn't happened.
I suggest you change the mailbox password to lock out any unauthorised device and to lock out your existing devices. Changing your email password
Then save any wanted mail messages before deleting the account from the mail apps. Then set up the mail apps afresh as IMAP email accounts. That way all devices will mirror what's on the TalkTalk Mail mailbox and be able to interact with all online folders.
