I have been using the Yahoo Mail app in iOS 6, but decided for simplicity to only use the iOS 7 mail app once I updated so perhaps this is not a new issue. Is there any way to select all messages without having to tap each message individually to delete them (i.e. cleaning out the junk folder)? I am not seeing any way to "select all" and then delete.

Just to mark all as read. Tbh the stock mail app has always been underpowered.

The "Delete All" function, only works in the Junk Folder / Deleted Items folder.

Doesnt work anywhere else in the Mail App. I dont understand why.

Thanks for the replies. So I guess the reason I didn't see the "delete all" functionality is because I didn't mark them as read because I was doing it from the junk folder. I'll try it again once my junk folder starts to fill back up.
