Default Is there a shortcut to deleting emails?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to delete an email without bringing up the menu? While I'm in an email reading it I would like to be able to hit a single key to delete the email, is this possible?

Welcome to the forums!

Go into the message folder and hit Menu>Options>General Options and change confirm delete to (NO). Then just hit the backspace key. Be careful though!!

Enjoy! As previously stated be careful! The answer to "I deleted a message that I really needed" is you can't get it back!

I have mine set to prompt and I just hit the Del key and then hit M for mailbox and handheld or H for just handheld. Quick and easy.

If you go to the top of your messages, where it highlights the date, press the menu button and scroll to "delete prior" and select that. it will erase all of your messages...was that what you were looking for?

Or...... the most easiest way without having to adjust any settings..... in your inbox, start at the bottom of your email list and hit the #/^aA than work your way up by selecting each email with that button, when your done selecting hit the pearl button and choose delete. It will prompt you whether you want to delete on handheld or on Mailbox and handheld?

Note: this only works in a row of selected emails, as you jump to another day of emails it will unselect the ones you just selected, so you will have to start over.

Play with it a bit and you will get the idea of how it works. I had stumbled across it one day. It works great! Fast and easy!

Cheers.
