Because we can't access your email account…:D

Why would you want to do that? If you want to delete everything from the iPhone simply go to the setting and delete the account from the iPhone.

I think he's referring to all emails in his inbox or the mailbox he's viewing. We can mark them all as read, or mark them all flagged, but we can't mark them all for delete. It seems like a fair question.

I cant understand the lack of this "feature" , too. Is that complicated to code ? Or is there a fair reason behind this decision ?

You can do it in the junk and trash folders (on iCloud account at least.) I guess it's not available in Inbox due to potential accidents.

Let's be honest here. Not all Apple users are the brightest people out there.

"I accidently deleted all my e-mails!"
"Did you not notice you tagged them all?"
"No"

/facepalm
