    My Virgin Media email account went down earlier and now it's decided to upload every single email from the server to my phone. It now says 99+ emails (257 actually) and I want to mass delete them rather than delete them one by one.
    Any way?

    You could remove the email account and then add it again - that would work. Just make sure when you're setting it back up the retrieval settings are set to something like 50 emails or 2 days or something.

    I have this problem almost daily. Removed 115 emails just this morning. One-by-one. No solution in sight. Maybe someone will write a small app?

    It's fairly straight forward this.
    select mail / menu / delete / menu / mark all / delete.
    Hope that helps.

    No "mark all" option so I assume you meant to put a red cross on every one.

    Did about 48, deleted them and now they've all vanished yet the mail icon on the home screen still says 99+

    Nope - no mark all on mine either I red-crossed all 115 (takes time). Mark all is exactly what is missing.

    Yes i meant the red cross but 1 click for all hence 'mark all'
    Very odd that it's not available to you :thinking: as it most definately is on my desire which is a week old.
    Dunno if it makes any difference but i am on Orange and the phone is unbranded... Apologies for the bad advice.

    Make sure you hit menu key again after choosing delete from the initial menu.

    That works :)

    Who would have thought there was a second menu beneath the first one!

    But you said there were actually 257... so 257 - 48 would still equal 99+

    After I deleted the first lot, it somehow jumped to my "junk" folder and that's why I could see any more mail!

    Just assumed the second "menu" was a typo ;)

    I currently have one of the 'first generation' DROIDS that I am looking to upgrade. I love the DROID Razr - however -

    The fact that I am unable to delete emails in bulk has been a MAJOR issue for me on my current DROID. :mad: (I currently have over 4700 "deleted" emails ... and have cleaned out over 7,000 of them previously) I have sworn I would never buy another Motorola phone until they fixed the issue. I sounds like that may be the case.... but I just want to make sure.

    On the new DROID Razr - can you "dump" or "select all" to delete ALL emails at the same time? :thinking: Or, do you still have to click on each one individually??

    Thank you!!!
