    Hey all!

    Just got my Galaxy S6 yesterday and not sure if I am not just used to the changes in lollipop or if the changes are really that bad!
    What happened to the organization of the old email app?

    This may be the wrong thread and if so, please point me in the right direction.

    I get a lot of spam at work, and sometimes it is easier to click on the date ticker, which selects all of the emails for that day and I can mark them as read or delete them.

    Now, my emails are NOT organized by the day of the week

    Now it is just one huge stream of emails with no way to pick multiple emails at once (ie by clicking the particular date) to delete or mark as read.

    Am I just missing something?

    Is there anyway to select multiple emails or do I really have to go through each email individually?

    And , if this functionality is not available, can anyone recommend a good email app where I can select multiple emails at once, particularly by date? Otherwise the app is pretty much useless to me.

    I have an out of the box Sprint Samsung Galaxy s6 that is unrooted.

    Not lovin' these changes at all!!

    Thanks all

    I don't know what the stock email client is on your phone but it seems you might be using the Gmail app.

    You might try some advanced email clients like MailDroid, Type Mail or Cloud Magic to name a few. i've tried a lot of email clients and AquaMail is my default choice for all of our devices. AquaMail has configuration options for just about anything you can imagine and a lot of little tricks to make handling email quick and easy.

    I just compared the stock email app on my old gs3 and teh S6 and yo are right...it used to group easily by day. I am looking in settings but so far I don't see that option anywhere.

    Gmail is NOT the stock email app ...we are talkning about the stock Androind Email app. Very different!

    Also, I am looking in Gmail and I don't see a way to group by day either

    Personally I don't use default email clients. I paid for a license for Nine, and it's been all kinds of worth it.

    @Erm10: The stock Samsung email app is not the stock Android email app. It's something Samsung dreamed up.

    @npaladin-2000: I haven't used Nine myself except to piddle around a bit on a friend's phone, but from all I've seen and heard it's kick-**** for EAS. But it appears pretty specialized for EAS and in fact he uses another app for his other accounts.

    I have used nine and other, but am currently giving the stock email app a try. You can select multiple emails by long pressing on any one email and then selecting the checkboxes which pop up. If you sort by date, the emails will be grouped by date with the date of the email appearing on the right side (with checkboxes on the left), so you should be able to achieve what you're looking for that way, if I understand what you're looking for.

    I'm actually liking the stock email app more than I thought I would. Nine is solid as well.

    Didn't realize it was Samsung and not stock Android.

    Yeah they took a step back on this feature. You used to be able to expand and collapse by date and it's definitely not there anymore.

    I use outlook. I can't stand G mail and it's jerky nature. Slide to delete one email, then slide another. ...it slides up one notch. Then slide another to delete and the first email i deleted reappears. Doesn't happen all the time but enough for me to hate it.

    Another vote for the Microsoft Outlook App. It's outstanding and even sorts your email for you with remarkable precision so you only get notified on 'real' emails (from real people) rather than automated emails, if that's a setting you like.

    Check out outlook, just make sure to switch off priority inbox if you want all your email in one stream. Do the same in your notification settings too else it will only alert you to priority emails.

    They definitely have left out all the good features of the older app. One complaint you didn't talk about, which drives me nuts, is that in a reply the cursor isn't prepositioned in the reply space so you can type a paragraph and then find out that it doesn't count and go do it again because you didn't put the cursor in the correct location before you started typing.

    I agree that the new stock samsung app is very bad.
    I don't use outlook at work..we use google so I am not sure if that or Nine are options.

    I think that people are missing the point of my original post.

    I do NOT want to click each individual email to get rid of them.

    I want to click ONE BUTTON to get rid of ALL OF THE EMAILS for that date.

    Gmail does NOT do this.
    UGH!
    Is there anyway to voice complaints to Samsung? Whoever thought of these horrible changes should lose their jobs! Terrible update!

    mikeinstlouis - I know the stock Mail client only allows to select each mail independently for marking as read. I recommend to try the "Type" mail app. This app allows to multi-select option to select all emails and mark all read at one time.

    With this phone I just started pulling my pop3 mail into Gmail, since I was having trouble accessing it over corp wifi. The old Samsung mail app had an annoying bug where it wouldn't correctly handle deleting mail from an IMAP mailbox. I'd hoped they might actually notice and fix it someday (sort of like the annoying SHIFT+SPACE issue with their otherwise superior virtual keyboard), but it seems instead, like with other areas of the OS, they have simply removed features for no good reason.

    If you're not using Google's Inbox app, you're missing out. Once you get it set up, the only email you ever read are the ones you WANT to read. It takes a couple of days to get used to it but it's like a J curve from there. I highly encourage that you sign up for it.

    Inbox by Gmail - the inbox that works for you

    I don't even bother setting up Sammy's email anymore. In fact, using Nova Prime to hide it was one of the first things I did.

    Correct me if I am wrong but Inbox only works for Gmail accounts.

    The closest thing to that, is hold down one of the emails and it will add check boxes next to all of them, then check off the ones you don't want and delete.

    I just upgraded from an S3. I am really missing the sort by date and select all check box. I am finding a lot of things I hate about this new S6 edge and its only been one day with the new phone.

    I hate to admit this ... but the more I get into my S6 ... the more of a love/hate relationship it's becoming!

    The hardware is amazing ... but all this stuff they've done to strip down TW and their default apps is killing me. It's really not a TON of stuff I've found, but all the stuff I'm talking about are things I found VERY useful ... but can no longer do using stop apps like I could before. Here's a partial list of things that I have found that are now gone, that existed on my S4 even up through the lollipop update:

    1. Stock email app: no longer has the nice little quick-icon bar at the bottom for replying, syncing, deleting, read/unread, etc.
    2. Stock email app: no longer as the sort by date
    3. Stock email app: no longer has the "select all" option
    4. Stock Messaging App: you can no longer set different vibration patterns for different contacts for text messaging (this also applies to groups)
    5. Stock Messaging App: you can no longer set different notification sounds for different contacts for text messaging (this also applies to groups)
    6. Widgets: one-touch call and/or text widgets are now gone from the stock widget selection
    7. Widgets: can't add widgets to the lock screen anymore - not stock widgets or third party / custom widgets

    I totally respect Samsung's decision to slim things down and make the phone more streamlined ... but man, getting rid of these "little things" seems like a huge step backwards. These are NOT things that were "bloating" the system ... Conversely, these were very useful things that made using this device more efficient ...

    After looking for a new mail app I have settled on K9. Not exactly the same as the old stock app, but has most of the features and doesn't cost anything.
