iOS 10 Mail to remove all functions?

I just installed the new update of ios10 and for some reason any lost the trash/remove any function in the messaging application.

Delete is dimmed, and when you select all, you can only mark a post to score as/unread.

Am I missing something?


Hi Alison,

It's great that you bring to your question on the deletion of all of your messages in the Mail application after installing iOS 10.  I know that whenever I update things may look and act a little differently, so I'm happy to help you resolve this issue.

Follow these instructions and you should be able to delete all messages in a folder.

  1. Open the Mail application
  2. Select the mail folder that you want to empty
  3. in the upper right corner, tap on change
  4. at the bottom, you should see Mark All and delete everything in blue
  5. Select Delete all and it will ask you again, all delete or cancel
  6. Select Delete all and it will remove all the email in this folder

Enjoy 10 IOS on your iPhone!

  • iOS 10 mail app move all / trash all

    I just upgraded my iPad to iOS 10 2 Air.  It seems as if the move "all" and "trash all" feature has been removed from the mail application.  When I discovered one of my inboxes (I have the iCloud accounts and gmail), and tap edit, only 'Mark All' is enabled.  'Move' and 'Archive' (gmail) / "Basket" (iCloud) is both greyed out.

    In iOS all 9 (still installed on my iPhone), 'move' and 'Archives All' (gmail) / 'Trash All' (iCloud) are activated when I hit Edit in each Inbox.

    Apple has removed this feature in iOS 10 or changed the way it is implemented?

  • Mail question: remove all the e-mail folder

    Hello. It is as much a matter of Gmail as a matter of Mail, but I tried to find an answer online with no luck.

    In Mail, is it possible to disable the all mail folder that generates Gmail?

    The problem with this file, is it seems to keep emails after I deleted these emails from my regular files. And when I do a search, the old emails in all messages are appearing.

    I tried to see if there was a setting in Gmail, but I don't see one.

    Thank you!


    Please ignore. I found the answer. It is in Gmail label settings.

  • Just download Firefox 18.0.1 and no longer have the feature in Yahoo! Mail. All functionality in Internet Explorer 8 and Google Chrome.

    I just downloaded Firefox 18.0.1 and I can no longer compose, forward, or reply to emails in Yahoo! Mail. Yet, all the features are all using Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 8.

    It's average.

    I just went through a check and I could use compose only when AVG Security Toolbar was disabled. I like that extension, so I'll just use Another Browser to send the rare Yahoo e-mail.
  • iOS 10 mail, lack of top-level

    The problem:

    In iOS 9, there was a list of top level of e-mail accounts. We could tap one, which would be a level in and display the tree view of the folders for the e-mail account. In iOS 10, for some reason, Apple dev seems to have deleted the first level as e-mail accounts separates. In place, they have stacked all email accounts on top of the other in one vertical line with no way to close the file trees. Anyone who uses the file trees to organize individual emails into categories and subcategories, and needs to have several emails, knows how much a nightmare this change is to navigate. It would be the same problem as if Apple has decided to remove the desktop Mac file browser bookmarks bar and then put all the files and subfolders in a long list in the viewer instead.


    Does anyone know how to get this higher level of e-mail accounts save?

    Can anyone recommend a good mail app that I can replace mail from Apple with if there is no solution?

    Hey, Pataphysicist!

    It seems that after upgrading your iPhone 5 c to 10 iOS, the Mail app is not displayed to e-mail individual records of account which can be extended. I use it often myself, so I'll be happy to help you.

    When I open the Mail app, mine defaults to "All inboxes" and I type "Mailboxes" on the top left. In the next screen, I find 'All boxes' and a list of my email accounts. Just below but who is a grey area that lists the email represents once again, includes a right arrow to access this file tree. If you don't see it is troubleshooting to do. Check your mail application after each numbered step.

    How to back up your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch --before troubleshooting a device, I always recommend a fresh backup. Is better "" than "need."

    1. forcing a nearby app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch - first of all, quit the mail application, and then restart your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch - never underestimate the power of a good restart.

    2. reset the iPhone settings - on your phone, go to settings > general > reset > reset all settings. This step will return your iPhone settings by default. Don't forget to write your networks, Wi-Fi/passwords before finishing.

    Be careful and please use the Apple Support communities.

  • iOS 10 Mail crashes after deleting some messages

    On my iPad after installing iOS 10 Mail closed unexpectly after deleting some messages. In addition, I regret the disappearance of the "remove all" button on some of the issues.

    Try resetting your device. This will not erase your data stored on that device.

    • Press and hold the sleep/wake button
    • Press and hold the Home button
    • Press and hold both buttons until the display turns off and on again with the Apple logo on the subject.

    Alternatively, you can go to settings - general - reset - Reset all settings

    If that doesn't work, restore your device to factory settings. Please note that this will delete the data on your device.

    Take a look this Apple Support article: use iTunes to restore the iPhone, iPad or iPod to factory settings - Apple Support.

    Updated to iOS 10 and all is well.  The LockScreen, I try to find a way to remove all notifications with a single gesture.  In the Notification Center, there is now a "clear all Notifications," which is great.  However, I would like to clear all notifications without unlocking the phone.  As I see now, I have to drag every individual notification, and then press clear.  It is a pain, especially if there are a bunch of notifications.  Thanks for any help someone can offer.

    Since the introduction of Apple App clarified in iOS 9.2, there is really no reason to keep copies of the app in iTunes. You can delete all the. Here are my longer explanation of the thinning App.


    With iOS 9.2 you are more able to move applications from one device to iTunes. Apple now uses a system called thinning App. With her, when you download or update an application on a device, only the resources needed for that specific device are downloaded. What makes downloading faster and significantly smaller. But it also means that this exact version is useless to any other device, so there are transferred to iTunes. If you want it in iTunes, you need to download directly from the App Store (or set this is done automatically). Personally, I stopped to keep copies of the apps in iTunes - no reason wasting disk space. I can always re-download them from the store. The only exception is an old, but stil work app that is abandoned by its developer.

  • Running for some time, firefox 'hangs' every 7 seconds 3 seconds, typing, scrolling, navigate... all functions to follow the cycle of 7 seconds break. Why?

    This problem does not appear to exist until "free" download of Windows 10 installed. I've waited too long to return to 8.1, now stuck with the $ @# @ 10 software. Using a FF browser "synchronized" to work (win 7) I have no problems with the cyclical lag during typing, scrolling, etc. Be totally irritated with win 10, I tried once again to try Linux (Mint) and noticed that the SHIFT does not seem to be there when you use FF in Linux, which has installed from their 'package '. This shift occurs every 7 seconds to 3 seconds of insensitive cursor, typing keystrokes, scrolling action... whatever. Suspecting some 'supplement' to go funky, I have removed ALL addons... no improvement. This forum works on 64-bit, 2 gig memory, relatively new machine that had no question to win 10.


    Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration. As this feature has been added to Firefox, it has gradually improved, but there are still some problems.

    You will need to restart Firefox before this takes effect so save any work first (e.g. you compose mail, documents online that you are editing, etc.).

    Then perform the following steps:

    1. Click the menu button

      then select the Options under Windows or Preferences on Mac or Linux.

    2. Select the Advanced Panel, then on the general tab.
    3. Uncheck the use hardware acceleration when available.
    4. Restart Firefox and see if the problems persist.

    This solve your problems? Please report to us!

    If the problem is resolved, you should check the updates for your graphics driver by following the steps in these articles in the knowledge base:

  • How to remove all items in the download under bookmark folder in the shortest time?

    I understand that all downloads from the internet and yahoo/google mail are stored in the "Download" folder I bookmarked when I want to delete. I think that if the download folder is never empty, then my mac will slow down. So I want to remove these downloads that I've seen. How can I remove all THE items in the shortest time? Deleting items, even in groups, takes a long time. Is there a method I can use so that all the items in the folder are deleted in one fell swoop?
