View Full Version : Delete all mail

I left my BB at home for a week while I was on vacation. Now I have 600 emails in this thing. I sure ain't about to delete all of these one by one. Is there a way of deleting all of the emails out of my BB? Some sort of reset or something?

Go to the top message, Hold the caps key down and scroll downwards with the wheel.. this should select everything, then click the wheel and select 'delete messages'

Could take a while. Maybe there is an easier solution?

Scroll to the top date.
Click the wheel and select "Delete Prior"
That will delete all messages off of the BlackBerry.

I did this once where I left the BB at home and came back with a pile of meesages but I did not turn my BB on. First i went to my original email boxes and deleted most of the items from there and that way it did not transfer messages right away.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I did not know that trick. That will save me tons of time in the future.

if you have the BlackBerry off while on vacation (for example) and you are on a BES, all your email will pend up waiting for you to turn it back on...when you get back, before turning on your BlackBerry open up Desktop Redirector and purge the pending messages. Those messages will never get delivered to your BlackBerry, but if it's like 600 spam messages, is that really a bad thing?
