Deleting all sent email messages from iPhone or iPad

Forum

Hello and thank you in advance for your help. Does anyone have any idea how to delete all messages from my email? I have a lot of sent messages I no longer need. They hjust take up a lot of space. Thanks again. Maria.

Hi Maria. To delete all emails, you have to select each one. I wish it were eaiser but that's the best way I know of. It's the same with deleted emails. I wish the actions where once you flicked up or down to delete, it stayed that way then I could just tap util they were gone. Hoping eventuallythat works in IOs. If someone knows a better solution I'd be interested to hear it.

Is the linked e-mail account POP3 or IMAP? If the latter, use either the web interface or a client on a computer [e.g. Thunderbird] to do this and your actions will be reflected on every device to which the account is linked. I myself use Thunderbird and do this periodically for the same reason. The IMAP account is linked to my iPhone and anything I do using Thunderbird is reflected elsewhere.

i know you can delete all email like you are asking if you have a jailbroken device. cheers to jailbraking. but if you don't want to do that your out of luck. either you have to delete them all individually, or use another client like previous posters have mentioned.

There is a jailbreak tweak called AllMail that can do this. It is $1.50 in the big boss repo in cydia. Hope this helps. :-)
