Delete e-mails individually or as a group


You can delete individual e-mail messages in the Inbox view by swiping your finger across the message left to right and hitting the "Delete" button.

If the message is open in full-screen view, you can tap on the garbage can icon at the bottom of the screen, but be careful with this—tapping on the garbage can deletes the message immediately without giving you a confirming pop-up menu.

Finally, you can delete multiple messages in the Inbox view by tapping on the "Edit" button in the upper right corner of the screen, tapping on the buttons next to the messages you want to delete, and hitting the "Delete" button in the bottom left corner of the screen. If you accidentally delete a message, by going into the trash can in the main menu of your email you can put the message back into your inbox or any of your other folders.
