    Wow, does that suck or what. I mean, seriously? You have to "tap" the screen 200+ times to clean out the trash bin?

    Clearly, there must be an option for "empty trash" or something similar.

    If not, this really needs to be added. I just checked my trash and it is huge. After tapping my brains out to toss delete the messages I have to tap them again to truly get rid of them?

    This is almost as bad as the double taxation where I have to pay fed taxes on funds used to pay property taxes and mortgage insurance.

    PLEASE!!

    Wow, this really stinks. Seriously? The final answer is tap every single message....twice if you want it out of the trash folder?

    C'mon guys, it's all ball bearings....

    you must touch the grayed out check box on the left of the message..Touch all that you want to delete and you will see a menu at the bottom that asks to mark read, add star, delete. Select Delete and all marked messages will be deleted.

    wala.

    If this has been posted plz combine or delete.
    This is the best thing I have read all day.... This had been annoying me since day 1, thank for posting.

    lol im sorry but this isnt the post i thought it would be.


    how about finding a way to delete all the inbox by pushing select all or something??

    i hate the fact that you have to check all the boxes then hit delete, i also thought everyone knew this?

    Deletion of Email

    I had this same issue and discovered that if you view your Emails and then don't select any Emails but just do a delete you will have delete(0). If you then press menu again you have a choice of SELECT ALL and then you can hit delete and get rid of all. I have an EVO but my guess is it should work on any Droid.

    There is a "DESELECT ALL" but not a "SELECT ALL", that would be a great feature for them to add. Like you say, it is so monotonous to have to tap each email to select it just to archive or delete.

    Well the problem I'm running into is that when I select a lot of emails some time the program freezes and has to be force closed and if it doesn't only the messages that are with in the screen get deleted cause I can scroll up and all the emails above it are still there just the ones that were with in the screen were deleted and I have over 1500 emails in my trash folder.

    I don't know what app this thread is about. Gmail? Email?

    Anyway, use k9.

    The stock email app has some serious bugs.

    So...

    Are we saying that in fact there is no way to select more than one email at a time and then deleting them together?
