I heard about the same issue in a pocketnow video. It pretty much seals it that I won't be able to use samsung email client then, as I receive lot of unwanted emails which don't always get filtered as span and ability to select multiple emails and be able to delete them is must.
My another concern is that european GS2 did not draw/refresh home screen quickly enough for a smooth experience when going back to home from an app [
].. I just hope Sprint GSII would have some software tweaks and hope further that this is just a TW4.0 issue!!!
Thats weird because we have that now on the GS1 so why take that out. Maybe they fix that issue or theires something is the settings. It looks to take 5+ seconds to delete but its also refreshing so it might be looking for new email and thats why it takes a little long to delete...
MailDroid. Works great for me, and there's a free version too.
MailDroid is good substitute email app and it has the option to select all emails, and delete them at once. The only option I did not see is the option to not delete the emails on the server, but I can work with it. It was also very easy to setup.
