"Select All" Deletes from Trash
« on: December 29, 2013, 01:25:05 PM »
Bear with me here, Brothers and Sisters.  I don't even know if this is a question for the Nexus Forum, or my local internet provider.
I have a Nexus 7 and email through roadrunner.  No trouble sending or receiving mail, or moving things to "Trash" for that matter.
Problem comes with deleting from trash.
There must be a way to "Select All" for delete but I've been unable to figure it out.  Only able to delete by checking the box on each individual item and then hitting the trash can.  I have such a backlog of trashed mail now that I'm getting a "high water mark" warning and don't want to spend all day deleting half a dozen items at a time.
Can anyone help?  Or am I in the wrong place?
Happy New Year to All!
Thanks for taking the time to read this post, and responding if you can offer assistance.
Rob

I don't use the stock email client, but when I did I remember that there was no "select all" option. I have since changed to Enhanced Email at the Google Play Store Here and you have the select all option in any folder. Select all was a side benefit for me as the email app supports exchange, imap, and pop email. This is probably not the solution that you are looking for but, the point is that different email apps may offer you the solution that you are looking for.

S.Prime,
Thanks for the response.  I'm beginning to think this may be a Nexus issue.
When I access my roadrunner email on my iBook, it does have a select all option, but, as I mentioned earlier, can't find a way to do it on my Nexus.
Happy New Year!

It is not a Nexus issue.  As S. Prime said, it's an application problem.  The stock e-mail doesn't support "select all".
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?
