Delete Multiple Emails [webOS 3.0]

This tip is only for devices running webOS 3.0 and higher

One big complaint in the email app of webOS 1.0 and 2.0 devices was the inability to delete multiple emails at once. While swiping to delete emails one after another is still a relatively easy task, especially with the auto-confirmation of the deletions, it still was not the most efficient process either. With the release of webOS 3.0's email app, you can now cross that complaint off your list because that functionality is now available!

On the email app's middle navigation pane (the message listing pane), you will find a little folder icon ( ) on the bottom-right that you can tap to enter a "selection mode" to select multiple emails. The top and bottom of that pane will turn blue and the pane's header will change to "Select items..." with a Cancel button. From here, tap on each email you want to delete (sadly, no "select all" option is available). Those emails will be highlighted and a running count of selected emails is maintained at the top of the screen. Once you are done selecting emails, just tap on the trash icon ( ) on the bottom of the pane and confirm the deletions in the preceding pop-up.
