Default Deleting emails

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. I just got my Blackberry and was wondering how to delete all emails at the same time instead of individually. Thanx...

There are a number of ways, covered in manual and the Quick Guide. Give it a read.

Fastest way:

Open e-mail folder.

Scroll with trackball to where you highlight a day/date bar.

Press <menu> key, dotted key to left of trackball.

Scroll and select <full menu> if full menu is not visible and you see the "full menu" on the list.

Scroll to <delete prior>

Click trackball to select

Scroll to <delete>

Press trackball to select and delete all e-mails prior or "below" the date bar.

Keep in mind that when you use the "delete prior" method, the messages are only deleted from the device and not the mail server. You can also highlight the first message you want deleted and then hold the shift key while scrolling. That will highlight the messages and when you press delete, you will be given a choice if you want to delete on Mailbox and Handheld or just handheld. This assumes that you have your "delete on" set to "prompt".

Thanks,I have wondered if this could be done and I use the delete prior all the time but sometimes there may be 1 message I want to hang on to and end up deleting the rest one at a time.

Default Re: Deleting emails

The solution you are looking for is to hold Left Shift or Right Shift and roll the trackball to select multiple messages. Once they are selected press Menu then Delete.

Bear in mind that you can only select messages in series although this is what you are looking to achieve by the sound of your question.
