My dad wants to get the new iPhone 3G. He said he often gets 300 emails a day and was wondering if there was a bulk delete option to delete all 300 emails at once if he wanted to OR does he have to click all 300 and then press delete?


I know on the old iPhone you had to select them individually, but has this changed?

Many spam-filtering techniques work by searching for patterns in the headers or bodies of messages. For instance, a user may decide that all e-mail they receive with the word "Viagra" in the subject line is spam, and instruct their mail program to automatically delete all such messages. To defeat such filters, the spammer may intentionally misspell commonly filtered words or insert other characters, often in a style similar to loudspeaker.

I don't get that many emails but I have an Exchange account, so I use Outlook to manage emails the easy way.

Sorry, I meant that you still have to select them one by one. I think some people want the option to just nuke the whole thing at once.

Edit: apple in their infinite wisdom removed this as an option now you have to go back to doing it the hard way


to save ppl A LOT of time do this

1. Go into your inbox
2. Press Edit
3. Select one message to delete
4. Press and hold the delete button
5. While you are still holding the delete button, uncheck the email you just selected.
6. Release the delete button.

Now you will be shown a prompt to either "Delete All" or Cancel.

I can't get this to work with my iPhone 4S from my INBOX. When I release the delete button, I'm just back to where I started. This does work swell from the TRASH folder. What am I doing wrong?

1. Go into your inbox
2. Press Edit
3. Select one message to delete
4. Press and hold the delete button
5. While you are still holding the delete button, uncheck the email you just selected.
6. Release the delete button.
