    Default [GUIDE] How to Delete Emails in iOS 7

    Quick tutorial on how to delete emails from your iOS 7 device. I've seen this question pop up a few times, so I figured this tutorial will help!

    The first set of steps is to delete emails if you have one email account or if you have one specific email account selected.
    ** Scroll to bottom if you have multiple email accounts! Or if you have all inboxes selected. **

    1. Go into your 'mail' applications and click 'edit', which is at your top right corner.




    2. Once 'edit' is selected you'll be able to select the emails you'd like to delete.



    3. Click 'trash' at the bottom right corner, and your emails are deleted!



    4. You're done!!!

    To delete from multiple accounts.
    ** Follow steps 1-2 from above. **

    3. When the emails you want deleted are selected, click 'move'. That is located in the center at the bottom.



    4. You'll be asked where you'd like the emails moved, select 'trash'.



    5. Now your emails have been deleted!!!

    Ahh... I always get 'archive' but maybe that's because I always have all of my inboxes together.

    it depends on the mail provider and can usually be changed from archive to delete in the settings.
