    Yea, I can't either. Since the app updates I assume it's how they designed it.

    I didn't notice that until just now. But I did see that while viewing the Trash folder...select the menu (3 dots) and there is now an option to Empty Trash. All gone at once! I don't think that was there before the app update? I like it.

    Lol ah there it is. I was selecting messages first and then it wouldn't allow you to remove them.

    When you are in the trash folder select the menu ... there is a delete all or empty option. Don't click a message...just open trash and select menu.

    Didn't the method posted by sajokaz work for you? It worked for me.
    Thanks for that, btw, sajokaz :)

    I don't think it's an Android OS item...I think that option appeared in a G Mail app update. When you open Play Store > My Apps is there an update available for G Mail? That's when I noticed the new option, which was 3 weeks after I hot KitKat.
