    Anyone know of an easy way to delete a lot of messages from your inbox easily. The edit option is too cumbersome for deleting a lot of emails - like over 150. Also anyone know how to mark email as junk? That's the reason I have so much stuff to delete. If not, Apple needs to update their mail app to allow you to mark mail as junk and to delete your entire inbox if desired.

    No good way. You need to set up your e-mail for your iDevice for very specific, low volume traffic... If you don't delete it, you will quickly run out of space, and your iPad will run really slowly in the mail app... - Options are to use a virtual e-mail, and set the spam filter to high. Have important e-mails go to your ipad, but have routine uses go to your virtual - that way when the inevitable spam starts showing up, you don't have to worry about it - it will self delete...

    Thanks. I didn't think I missed anything. How would I go about setting up a virtual email. Not familiar with that but it seems like the solution I'm looking for unless Apple updates their primitive iPad email app.

    Virtual - as in Yahoo Mail, or Hot mail, or G Mail. Maybe most folks refer to this as Webmail, I don't know - but it would be through the internet, so the mail is not stored on your machine, but their servers.

    This worked for me

    First I deleted all old emails from the mail server. Then I set my MAIL PREFERENCES > MAILBOX BEHAVIORS like this: SENT: one week old; JUNK: quitting mail; TRASH: (check the box) one day old.

    After this I went to PREFERENCES > MAILBOX BEHAVIORS > ADVANCED and checked both "Enable this account," and "Include when automatically checking..."

    This worked for me.

    I found that setting on my iPad in Settings/Mail/Contacts/Calendars/Brazee.

    But my wife's account's settings don't seem to be visible (I looked in Settings/Mail/iCloud, but it seems to be on-off switches). Her e-mail is on iCloud now.
