Is there a way? I couldn't find any for either gmail or my PoP3 account.
For your pop3 go into email-menu-folders-trash then select them and delete, not the most convenient, but gets the job done. Looks about the same for gmail, just sub labels for folders. Should be an easier way though, I will keep looking.
Thanks. I was able to do that. I was hoping for a way to globally empty that folder rather than delete each message individually.
That would be nice.
Royal PITA to have to delete stuff from your inbox and then have to go in and select each individual item again to delete from trash - needs some kind of "delete all" feature.
these files sit in the file system somewhere, we should be able to find that and delete them at once from that file.
anyone with 2.1, has this been changed? Maybe they've added the option now..like when you long-press the trash folder it asks if you want to empty it.
Arggg..I just noticed this. Does K-9 mail empty trash in one click?
Just joined the forum, and was very disappointed to learn this hasn't been solved. Did 193 deletions 1-by-1.
Just for the record, nearly 18 months and one major OS revision since the last post, Droid email still doesn't have an empty-the-trash function for POP3 accounts (or any other type of mail).
Still can't do it on android tablet 3.2........sad
