    How do you delete "all" ur emails at once?

    If I want to clean up my Gmail or my regular email (yahoo) account how do I select all and delete? I could only figure out how to delete one at a time.

    Unfortunately, you can't. It's easier to log into your email account on a computer and delete them if you have a bunch. I was really hoping the most recent update to the OS would add this feature because it seems to obvious to most of us.

    You kinda sorta can.

    If you enable batch operations under settings you can check each mail then click delete. It is a bit faster than opening each one and deleting.

    as was said above
    do it on the computer
    FAR EASIER
    your droid's relationship with gmail is for convenience, essentially
    all the real "work" will be done while online at your pac/mac/laptop

    That is a stupid excuse. How hard could it possibly be to add a menu item for "select all" or "mark all read"?

    Let the rest of us know when you have that worked out.....

    You can mark the check box next to the ones you don't want and hit delete.

    My issue is that when you delete email from the Droid it doesn't delete from the gmail account online and a few mins later thay are back on the phone. So you actually have to delete everything twice. Once from the phone then from the server. Does anyone know how to fix that?
