Deleting Email

I have over 500 emails on my Blackberry Bold. Is there anyway to delete all of them at once?  I've only been able to select one at a time to delete. It takes forever to delete a bunch at a time.

Re: Deleting Email

If you highlight the latest date in your list then hit the menu button you will see a Delete Prior option, select this and all emails you have prior to that date will be deleted.



Hope this helps...

Re: Deleting Email

Alternatively you can configure your device in a way so that older messages will delete automatically after certain time. This is help you from performing the task manually. To configure it -

  1. Messages
  2. Options
  3. General Options
  4. Keep Messages: 15days/30days/2months/3months/4months/5months/6months/Forever

Re: Deleting Email



Just searched for this as I was wondering the same thing - I never noticed that before, you just saved my thumb 408 clicks on the delete button!!


Thank you -  I have given you Kudos!

Re: Deleting Email

I had the same problem.  Thank you so much.  I couldn't find an answer in the PDF supplied by Blackberry (perhaps I looked in the wrong place?), but your solution was Purrr..fect!
