iPad e-mail
 
Does anyone know how to delete all e-mails on iPad with a single set of strokes. I used to be able to do it using the MOVE button, but that doesnít work any more. I have about 50,000 e-mails that need to be deleted. I posted the question on Facebook but got no answers. I also tried Googling it and several said the way I used to do it, but one said with one of the OS updates, it was deleted and they have to be deleted one at a time.

Go into the email folder hit EDIT, select the emails to delete, then hit trash at the bottom

IPad email
 
Likely itís the way your email service is set up. Pre-iPad you likely used a PC or Mac that was connected to your isp. When you deleted email it deleted from your isp servers. Once you go to multiple access points - ie iPhone,iPad and PC the email on your mobile devices will not delete off the server unless set up to do that. If you only have an iPad and donít access email from other devices it can be set up to delete when downloaded

If you have multiple devices either your ISP supplier or Apple support can help you with the best way to handle it

i believe you :

1- hit edit (circles appear)
2- check just one email in your box
3- hold finger on "move" (located at the bottom of screen)
4- while holding finger on "move", un-check that one email.

a folder should then display

5- click trashcan
and all emails should migrate to the trash folder at one time.

again, not confident 100% this is applicable to every IOS version.

Deleting all e-mail messages with one click
 
That is exactly the way I used to do it, but it doesnít work now.

You may need to go into the email setting and turn off the option to "archive" emails
