    I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to delete all spam messages at the same time. I used to be able to choose "select all" then "delete". Now I can't do that. I have over 3000 emails I need to get rid of! They are driving me crazy!!
    I am on an IPhone and it is gmail.
    Much thanks in advance,
    Karen

    In the Spam folder? Don't think there's a way to mass delete on mobile (think you have to use desktop Gmail). Of course, they just sit there and auto-delete after 30 days, so you can ignore the folder(?)

    Hi! No, I don't have a spam folder in my gmail. The only other folder that I have besides the usual ones is "All Mail". I deleted them from my laptop gmail but they are still there.

    Hmm... maybe "Use Spam Folder" is an option you can turn on via laptop? I've always had it, I think...

    switch to Inbox, which is an enhanced Gmail mail app. It has mass delete for all folders. You can use your same account.

    I second the mention - switch to Inbox. I use it on my iPad Air 2 and my iPhone though I prefer gmail on my desktop (but Inbox on the computer works pretty well too).

    Really? My gmail account gets like 6-8 spam emails a week. But.... but my yahoo account.... that gets about 500 every few days. :(. Interestingly enough, I use my Yahoo account as my "public - company - forced to give email on websites" address whereas my gmail account is for business, personal, family.

    I'm confused as to what the OP is doing and has done. No Spam (Junk?) folder? "Select All" where? Deleted "them"? What is "them"?

    Thank you everyone!! I can't delete the spam files except manually. I've tried everything with no luck. How frustrating!!

    I do something pretty similar.
    I use my Outlook for all of my day to day stuff.
    I use gmail for other stuff that I am required to give my email addy for. Plus all of my emails that need to be saved into a file- I create folders specifically for them.
