    Emptying the Trash!

    I have over 4000 email messages in my trash folder..Without going thru each one and highlighting each one to help clear out my trash folder, HOW in the WORLD can I bulk delete these emails? They're clogging up my phone memory!
    HELP!!!

    We're talking stock email account, right? Delete the account and start over.

    However, an even better way is to switch to K9.

    About once a week or whenever I think about it, I just go on my computer and do it, it takes like ten seconds.

    I spoke to Motorola about this. If you use Gmail, the trash empties itself every 30 days. If you use other email ( I use roadrunner), you have to empty the trash, or it just accumulates. You have to delete each email from the in box, and then again from the trash folder. There is no way around it, according to Motorola.

    I"m actually on hold with a Verizon rep who is helping me with this..She agrees with you ..HOWEVER she said there's a few options. Since I have thousands of trashed emails, I'm going to wipe the account and start over to get the damn thing flushed out. We downloaded an app called mobile backup home which moves your contacts to your SD card..then we're syncing the comcast account with gmail, to ensure everything is retained, then wiping the damn comcast account off the phone..HOW STUPID is it NOT to have a 'select all' or an ability to highlight vast amounts of data or emails on your phone!? Told the rep to tell the boss!
    :-)
    Thanks for your help!

    All your contacts are stored on your google account anyways.

    I repeat: switch to K9. The stock email app is buggy, never updated, and has fewer features.

    What the flock, go on line to Gmail, trash, and empty all trash. Bam, it's all gone.

    This is not difficult.
