    Hello.

    I never noticed how long some of my emails can be until i got the apple watch. Usually i just want to triage them and mark them as dismissed. But i have to use the digital crown and scroll and scroll and scroll to the bottom to dismiss.

    If I get 4 emails at once and they show up as notifications... is there a way to dismiss them selectively instead of going into each one and scrolling to the bottom?

    I know there is a force tap option to dismiss but it seems its all or nothing?

    maybe i missed something?

    thx

    So just to the right of the "2nd" email icon?

    seems to work for me!!!

    it says -dismissed- in text at the bottom of the watch when you do so.

    thank you very much for the tip!

    well shiver my timbers.

    You can left swipe on an individual mail item (i am seeing 3 now) and a clear X will pop up. just what i wanted.

    noticed the tip above may not work when you have more then one email notifications at once.

    this tip will work when you have more then one.

    How do you know the emails are long unless you've opened them? :p
    I thought you were looking for a shortcut to clear mails that you had started reading and realized they were long...my method works for that situation...but thanks for your tip! That helps...

    From the stickied "All the little things" thread:

    Swipe to the left on a notification to get a "Clear" option
    Force touch on Notifications screen to get a "Clear All" option

    I would say 90% of my email notifications are dismissed by swiping down from the top. The subject line tells me most of what I need to know.

    I actually wish there was a way to trash emails from the notification list (like you can from the iPhone's lock screen and notification pane). As far as I know, deleting emails requires clicking the notification and scrolling to the bottom.

    Agreed. A Right swipe with a red x would be an awesome additional gesture.

    I get lots of texts and emails. Long texts are usually sent by those who ignore the appropriate way to send their message. In the business environment I work in people are knowledgeable and don't send long verbose texts.

    Or a force touch while in the email. Either way is better than having to scroll down when you know from the subject that you want to trash it.
