    Say you have your mail to display 25 messages, when open mail can you select all 25 messages and delete all?

    Also ive got my mail linked to my hotmail and gmail account, when I delete messages from the mail app and then check my mail at home on a pc the deleted messages are still shown-is it possiable to have the deleted messages to be deleted from both the mail app and hotmail/gmail when viewed on your pc?

    Yes to the first question.

    As far as hotmail goes (I assume gmail works the same), it doesn't have the same support as for example Yahoo Mail, which does delete the messages off the server when you delete from the iphone. So, if you delete off the iphone for hotmail, they will still be there in hotmail itself.

    If you set up Gmail to use IMAP, it will synchronize across your computers and devices.

    You have to "check off" each one individually then delete them as a group or do them one at a time. There is no way I am aware of to "SELECT ALL" with one command then delete all. It's a P.I.T.A.

    Sorry, I was wrong. I had thought you could do that, but I just replied from memory. Anyway, you have to check each one off individually as the poster above stated.
