    IS there a way to empty the inbox. After resetting my iPad I have 500 emails in my inbox.

    Sent from my iPad using iPF

    There's an easy way to remove them all at once. In the inbox, tap "Edit":

    Select one message (1) and then tap "Move"(2):

    Hold "Move" and deselect the email. Release "Move", and this will appear:

    With 500 emails, it might need a little bit of time until it completes.

    Choose the folder where you want to move the emails.
    Hope that helps.

    Yes J, you " Brainiac " - if you write an email, you are half way through and it disappears, my friend told me there was a way to get it back! You know anything about that? Kind of the opposite of delete and more like an up delete? :) ;)

    Maybe it's in Drafts then. I don't know of another possibility to find it.

    This doesn't work with the new mail 7.1. Anyone know how to do this with the latest Mail? I don't use mail, I use Boxer since I have multiple email accounts, but Mail is taking up a lot of memory.
