Can you "select all" when deleting email?

I set up my wife's new i5 that she got today. She has an email through Yahoo! That has a lot of junk and old emails. Is there a way to select all so I don't have to individually delete each one? I couldn't figure it out. Thanks

There is not a select all option the best you can do is tap edit in the upper right then the circle on the left of each message then select delete.

I guess the bet thing to do then is go on the PC and do a major delete.

Maybe try with the Yahoo! Mail app? Not sure if you can though, I don't have it installed.

No, not yet. Trust me, this is an option I've wanted for so long.

I stand corrected. The YouTube video shows how to do it in older version of iOS but it is explains how to so it in the comments for iOS 6.
