    If I don't use my iPad for a few days, I might have as many as a 100 emails on it in my various accounts. I've mostly read these emails already, either on my iPhone or my iMac.

    If I want to delete all these emails on my iPad, the only way I have found is to click on "EDIT" and one by one click on the email "circle" to the left of the email, and then delete it.

    Is there a way to make all these emails at one time as emails to be deleted, and then just delete them, and not have to click on them one by one?

    Thanks!

    Set your email accounts up using IMAP and not POP.

    Allows you delete them from any device. Your mailbox essentially stays in sync across multiple devices. Delete on your Mac and it's gone from your iPad. Your mail provider has to support IMAP however (most do these days).

    Incredibly, my mail email provider does not support IMAP. Just got off a chat with its tech support guy. Sheesh. :confused: :( :mad:

    Time to find a new provider? Gmail is free...

    Yes, Gmail. And if your email address is a domain you own you can set up a free Google Apps account that will host your domain-based email.
