    Good day!

    Generally it takes me just a few minutes with a new phone to find something that irritates me. Not so with the Evo, it has taken me a week to find my first niggly complaint.

    I have several email accounts set up in my default mail app.
    Most are pop 3 accounts with the email set to delete from server in 24 hours. This allows me to receive the mail on both my PC where I archive it, and my cell, so that I never miss an email.

    Since I now have two copies of my email, there really isn't any reason for me to keep a copy on my phone for more than a week. But there does not seem to be a way to bulk delete or even bulk select mail older than a given period for deletion.

    The multi-select certainly is an option, but selecting 400-500 mails for delete is quite a chore.

    Any tips, or have I missed something obvious?

    Thanks, but are you sure?
    That would seem a bit unfortunate for folks who are keeping their mail on their phone.
