Default Dell Streak 5: Email Question - 03-31-2011, 06:52 PM

How can I "select all" and delete a group of emails at the same time? This is from a non gmail accout set up on my dell streak 5.

Also, do i need to purchase app that will clear the trash bin in the email account? i have over 325 deleted emails in the Trash folder and have to click one by one the delete. seems there should be a way to "select all"

Thanks.

Access the email account from a real mail client and delete whats not wanted or file them in folders. The email client on the streak, at least where Hotmail is concerned does display folders.

Now refresh the mail client on the streak, the only mails displayed will be what ever you left in your inbox.

Thanks Fester (like the name)
I was hoping there would be a check box at the Dell Steak client side but i guess i can take the time to logon to the real client and mass delete and then resync.

The Streak does show drilldown folders ( In, Draft, Outbox, Sent and Trash folders) . I even see these for the Hotmail/Live.com mail account on my Streak.

My screen looks like this layout:
Top: Combined Inbox (i have 4 accounts set up)
Top: Starred

Accounts:

Home DSL Email Acct: (then to far right end of the screen: a white drilldown folder. click it to get "Inbox, Outbox, Draft, Sent and Trash" folders.

ATT.net Account: (same as above)

Hotmail Account: (same as above)
email 4

Second Gmail account but not the primary gmail: (same as above)

when i click on the white folder to the far right of each mailbox, i see all the emails there were sent and deleted but, cnt mass delete at the streak siide.

Your suggeston works so no biggie.



Thanks

Purchase Enhance Email from the Android Market. This is a souped up version of the standard email tool that comes with theStreak.

Enhance Email lets you do a batch delete, move email among folders and get rid of the 100s of old email sitting in the trash folder with one step instead of selecting one by one, then deleting over and over.

Glad I installed it!
