iPhone 101: Batch mail deletion
Here’s a very handy feature of the iPhone 2.0 software. Previously, deleting many email messages at once was a real pain. You could either swipe across your messages one at a time (invariably selecting a few by accident), or enter edit mode and select a message, touch the Delete button and then touch the Confirmation button. Not exactly speedy.
The 2.0 software makes this much easier. First, touch the Edit button. Next, touch every message you want to delete. When you’re through, touch the Delete button at the bottom of the screen.
Alternatively, you can use this method to bulk move messages.
