Is there a way to delete unopened emails? The only way I can delete emails right now is for me to open them first.
There is a "grayed out" checkbox next to the emails. Tap that to "check mark" the email. Then tap delete. You can also "check mark" multiple emails to delete more than one at a time.
Are you using the Gmail app, or the Email app? Gmail has a white envelope with a piece of paper that has a red M on it, and Email has a white envelope with and orange paper coming out if you're not sure.
The star should be on the RIGHT side, and the CHECK MARK should be on the left.
More important to me is the ability to either block delete or delete some way - email that I don't want to open first to be able to do so. The check box sounds like the way to select and delete unopened email but there's no such checkbox on my Droid.
Yes, you can just leave the e-mail there, but if you keep a LOT of e-mails in your account, and you get one that you know you'll want to read again after a long time, you star it and then go into the starred folder when you want to read it and then you can find it faster.
The "Check Mark" IS on the left in the stock email app. It is a grey box with a darker grey check mark inside it. When you click it, the box turns bright green and the check mark turns white and three buttons appear at the bottom, Mark unread, Add star, Delete. You can select as many as you want, and then delete them.
If you want, you might also look into this http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...rding-you.html Those instructions tell you how you can easily setup your gmail account to check your Pop3 email account. If you do that, you can use the gmail app, which everyone agrees is much better than the email app.
I have my email being forwarded from the control panel on my web site account.
Guess I need to look at the Gmail app.

The provided email on my eris can be batch deleted by pressing menu then delete. Check boxes will appear to the right of each email. select on and you then have the delete option light up next to the cancel option at the bottom of the screen.,
The Gmail has check box on left to mass select/delete and the star on the right.
Hope this helps.
