Swipe your finger across an e-mail to delete it

A quick and fun way to delete e-mail messages (in the list view of a folder) is to simply swipe your finger across it (in either direction). A red Delete button will appear to the right of the message to confirm the deletion. If you change your mind, you can tap anywhere outside the button to cancel the action. This finger swiping action lets you delete items in a number of the built-in applications.

An alternate method for deleting messages is to tap the Edit button in the top right corner of the screen, tap the red circle to the left of the message that you want to delete, and tap Delete.

quickly bring up the Delete button.
