    If you are referring to deleting your emails through the native app, you will not be able to do a mass delete. You can only delete one at a time by sliding your finger from left to right on each email. A delete button will appear to do this.

    In order to do a "select all" you will need to go to your email server to do this function.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Further to Ski's advice, the fastest way to delete emails is in landscape mode, on the left hand column at the top you will see Edit press this and the column will shift to the right, go down the column pressing on the emails to delete, once you have them all selected, press delete which is at the bottom. It's simple and this is the fastest way. Enjoy!
