Searched the forum but didn't see a post that covered this so here goes: I discovered this by accident so I wasn't able to recreate it. I called Apple but got an overseas rep who said it was not possible. After numerous pleas he transferred me over to a state side rep who didn't know about the feature but said he would try to find it on his iPad. Well, I recreated it myself while he was gone to play with his iPad so I thought I'd share my findings here: To delete multiple emails in trash instead of selecting them one by one here's what you do. While in "trash" double click the edit button. Then the delete button changes to delete all. After you click on delete all a confirmation delete all button pops up and you then click on that. Ta Da!
