    When forwarding email received in Gmail how do you delete all of the previous email addresses in an email string?

    Tap on an address and use the backspace key.

    After you tap Reply All, tap and hold at the end of the list of emails (you may have to tap 'more' to see them all). You'll get a popup menu that allows you to Select, or Select All. Once you've got a selection you can drag the handles to include more or less, just like you do in Notes or another text editor.

    Once you've selected a block of addresses choose Cut to remove them from the address field.

    There is no way to tap-select multiple addresses individually; but you can tap each address to select it, then delete it using either an external keyboard or the scissor (cut) icon in n the software keyboards tool bar. This two-taps method should be pretty fast once you get the hang of it.


    Note: After selecting a single address by tapping on it you'll have that same drag handles you would see if you used the Select or Select All option I first recomended. This would make it easier to select addresses from the middle of the list.
