Default How to delete numerous emails at once?

Please Login to Remove!

I want to be able to scroll through and press a button to delete the emails, this way I can get rid of them faster then I do now. Is the only way to delete emails to click on each one and delete them individually?

Right on, I have wondered that myself. I will try it next time I have more mail to delete. Thanks for the tip!

Please note that when you do a Delete Prior, those messages will NOT be deleted out of your Outlook Inbox. Delete Prior only works on the BlackBerry messages folder.

Highly searchable...

Or hold down the CAP key and scroll with the scroll wheel to select multiple e-mails and then push the delete key. The kicker is they have to be in sequence, you can't randomly pick 5 e-mails to delete...

Have people noticed that when they went to 4.0, highlighting multiple messages is really slow, but in the 3.7/3.8 firmware it was very fast?

You also can just hit the delete button on the keypad when highlighting an email.....
