email on tablet

I have email on my Playbook but I find it overwhelming to delete it all because I can only figure out how to delete 1 at a time.  Is there a way to just empty the email on there or delete multiple emails? 

 

And I find the icons down the Right Hand side don't help much cuz I don't know what they mean & I have to click each one to see what it does.. pain in the behind.  I wish it had text with the icon.  It's a chore to use it.. I think I might just delete it unless I can make more sense of it

Re: email on tablet

Personally, I don't even setup my email accounts on it. I read/delete email bridged to my BB.

Re: email on tablet

Hello towngirl_04

 

I have sent you a link so that you can see what the icons mean. Scroll down to the sectiion that explains about learning the playbook. There a number of demonstration that will help you.

 

I have tried to see if the email allows multiple deletes, but, like you, have been unsuccessful.

 

I do not have a blackberry phone so cannot use Bridge. I could update on the pc but that is impracticable when I am not as home.

 

Regards

Re: email on tablet

Thanks very much.  Too bad it doesn't seem to multi-delete because this is a pain in the rump! I will probably remove the email from there.

Re: email on tablet

There isnt a 'select all' but in the email app, I can swipe down from the top border, and click on the 'Select' button.  This then enables tick boxes to the left of each email, 

You can tick multiple emails and then tap the trash icon.

Re: email on tablet

You can also hold top email and tap the bottom email to select a block. In portrait mode that's quite a few.

Re: email on tablet

No, I don't seem to be able to highlight a block of them.  Can't even get 2 at 1 time.  I can hold the top email all I want but nothing else highlights when I tap
