Is there any way to empty your email without checking each one under settings or set to delete in so many days like the phone?

Automatic deletion would be a function of your webmail account. Nothing on Playbook will do that.

 

Emails will only stay on Playbook for 7 days by default, but will stay on your webmail account til you deal with them.

I'm not sure I understand...I just deleted over 2000 emails last night, the bulk of which I had already deleted on my laptop.

Depends if you use an email client on laptop or webmail in a browser. If your laptop deleted them from the online mail servers, then if you are syncing playbook message app properly they should have disappeared from Pbook after a few refreshes. It is not instant. should not be a need to delete from both unless laptop client does not sync same way.

Changing from 7 to say 15 day sync period, then back again should force a resync to speed it up.

 

 

If you had 2000 emails in the 7 day sync period then I sympathise.
