    I just came over to the dark-side from Android (ONLY because I had very little choice) and already I am frustrated as heck.

    I have 6 gmail accounts I need to monitor and neither the iPhone app or the Gmail app offers a simple common feature "SELECT ALL" messages so you can archive or delete or move all the junk that ends up in the inbox without going through it 1 email at a time. With 100-150 message a day it's a PITA.

    Is there something I am missing like telling SIRI to please select all my friggin' inbox messages at once! :rolleyes: :eek: :eek: :)

    I did find the "MAILBOX" app which at least allows you to archive all the messages (but it, like the gmail app) only allows 5 accounts.

    But nothing out there allows you to "select all" messages. Seems like such a BASIC feature.

    Then on top of that the iPhone native app, while it allows me to have 6 accounts doesn't do gmail push notifications.

    Anyone know if IOS 7 has added any of these features?

    I so miss the Kaiten mail app.

    Sorry, had to vent. :eek:

    yes, get your act together and organise your mail. increase your global spam filters, use safe lists, block contacts, unsubscribe and so on.


    you get 150 useless mails a day and instead of thinking how you can reduce that number you concern yourself with how you can send it all to the archive everyday with a single click.

    not even going to ask why you need 6 mail accounts.



    edit: and BTW, all those 150 mails you get everyday drain your battery. so does checking all your 6 mails accounts to get them.

    Not exactly sure if this will help this particular situation, but perhaps something from the post might be of use: http://www.jasonelk.com/2011/02/how-to-delete-all-your-mail-at-once-on-your-iphone-4/

    Also, iOS 7 is providing some additional controls in the default mail app as well, although, again, I'm not sure if they will help this particular situation: http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/06/27/inside-ios-7-mail-gets-gesture-support-and-reworked-ui and http://www.fastcolabs.com/3013429/ios-7-mail-not-the-mail-app-youve-been-waiting-for
