When using the Mail app, we can now delete all our emails at once. From within any mailbox, just double-tap edit at the start of the page and double-tap on select all at the start of the edit page also. You can then double tap on delete at the end of the page and get rid of all messages. Not sure if this was mentioned before, But I'm glad for it.

This has been around for a long time.

This works the exact same way if you have the app Youmail. By the way, on a side note, I recommend this app.

Can someone please tell me how to find the delete button. I'm fine finding edit, select all but when I look at the bottum of the screen, I just see flag move and archive. What am I missing? I can manually select things and the delete button is right there but the select all and delete gives me trouble. Thanks

after doubletapping select all, if you do a four finger tap near the bottom of the screen, you will see a trash, button. Doubletap this to deleate

I have two accounts configured in the Mail app. Trash option comes only in All Inboxes folder. on specific folders, there's Archive instead of Trash. Same is with other folders!

Try the move option and look for trash.
