    I have a stock Razor Maxx with OTA ICS. I use gmail. Not other email app. So what I am wanting to do is to delete multiple emails without having to check each email being deleted. For instance, let say I have 200 message in my spam folder. How can I just delete all the message in the spam folder and be done with it? Same for trash folder.

    I feel like this is a simple possibility but I just figure it out myself.

    Good question. I usually just delete them from my account on the computer.
    Haven't found a way to do it from the phone yet.

    This is nuts. Ther should be a "check all" option. I get around 50 spams daily and would like to delete them all at once, checking each one is annoying. I could do it that way on my old wm phone from years ago. I know they self delete after a certain time, but doesn't that time period default to 30 days? Way to long.

    use a different 3rd party email app and setup Gmail through it. Someone's gotta offer the select all option.

    That's why it goes to the spam folder.

    Interesting. I'm 2 days into this phone after coming from a BB Storm (the original Storm, no less). You could swipe-select multiple emails on that one, kinda surprised with all the gesture-ability on this beauty that you can't do the same... Still investigating!

    I have a Razr Maxx ICS (Ver 4.0) and if you select ONE email check-box to delete it, a flag displays on the bottom menu of the screen and 3 DOTS stacked vertically appear to the right of it. Click the DOTS and a "Select ALL" will display on the bottom of the screen. Select it, then you can selectively "un-select/un-check" those you may still want to save before clicking the TRASH CAN icon in the lower left corner to delete the emails.

    This is applicable for my MSN/Hotmail account, so check it on your emails accounts.....Lowell

    Can't delete multiple emails on the Nexus 7. This applies to 'Gmail' or other emails redirected to my Nexus 7 mail program from my other email accounts - the suggestion to tick one email first and then 'select all' does not work - there is NO select all.
