I love my Galaxy S, but I sure want to see a method or app show-up for selecting all email for deletion.  Touching the gray box next to 35 or 50 email items to delete them is tedious an inefficient.

Does anyone know a more effective way to delete all email?  The Trash folder has a Delete All function.  I don't understand why the Inbox doesn't.

I guess the easiest way would be to download your email to a client and set your client to deleted messages from the server. Then the next time you updated, messages would be deleted. Or you can go to webmail and delete them there.

Thanks.  Seems like a lot of hassle when all the Galaxy email system needs is a way to select groups of messages or, at least, a Select All and/or Delete All option.

I used to use Blackberrys, and it was simple to select all the email items you wanted and delete them.

I hope Google addresses this in the next OS update.  I've seen others comment on this issue.

Thanks again.

Yes it does but blackberry works differently than android for email. My WinMo Omnia II also handled email better. Android is still a young OS and will hopefully improve in leaps.

I'm confident it will.  Google does everything very well, so I figure it's just a matter of time before they address this. Aside from this issue, I think my Galaxy S is outstanding.  The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.

After learning the basics of phone and system, the issue of not being able to select multiple email to delete is my major issue with the operating system. BB is known for its email services for good reason. I hope google/Andriod catches up.

It's painful for sure - I've deleted the wrong email by mistake because of trying to get rid on a bunch, one by one.

Has anyone ever figure out a way of mass deleting without selecting e-mails one by one? I receive over 100 emails per day...now, not to forget, once you have deleted them, you must empty your trash also, one by one, which takes the same insane time....oh! and the sent folder....god this is stupid.

K9 Mail gives a 'select all' option in any mail folders,  handy for mass deletion. Free from Market,  much better than the built-in email app.

Yahoo Mail app also allows "CLEAR ALL" for various categories of emails; SPAM, TRASH and INBOX

I have a few questions regarding my Samsung Galaxy S II (via Sprint).

1. I have never seen a phone that did not have a "select all and/or delete all" selection for e-mail.  That is in e-mail they all have to be deleted one at a time.  This has to be repeated from the trash bin as well (why some here state that they have a delete all I don't know unless it is something specific to the Samsung/Sprint phone).  I cannot tell you how much of an issue this is when one gets over 100 e-mails a day.
2. To make the above worse, I delete all e-mails and then (after also deleting them from my computer several hours later) the same e-mails will come in again???
3. I am also receiving e-mails from no one dated (12/31/1969) and some are marked "null". 

What the heck is going on with this e-mail program.  It is at such a point that I almost want to go backt to my HTC EVO to avoid all of this.  I love the phone but all of the problems seem to revolve around e-mail.

I have talked to both Sprint and Samsung and neither can answer any of the questions however upon searching I was able to get some information on the 1969 question
