    • Sort your email messages by date, sender, or subject.
  • Discarding an email draft
    • Once you start writing a new or reply message, most people would like that simply swiping away the card would discard it. However, that actually saves the message as a draft. This shows you how to completely discard the message if you do not want it anymore

    • Saving a photo from an email is pretty straightforward, and saving an emailed document or spreadsheet happens once you load up the document/pdf viewer.
