How Can I Delete ALL emails from my iPhone Sent Folder - without doing one by one? I have somehow built up a couple thousand emails in my Sent Folder and need to know how to delete them all at once rather than one by one.

To the one reply so far:

I have the iPhone in my hand. When I click on the Mail icon, "My Email" opens up (it's the email set up thru iCloud with an xxxx@me.com address) When I go to "Mailboxes", the folders are - from top to bottom - Inbox, Draft, Sent, Junk, Trash, and Archive. So I don't know what you are talking about as MY iPhone clearly does have a "Sent Folder". I do NOT have Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook or any others set up on my iPhone - just the one set up thru iCloud.

  • The iPhone doesn't have a "Sent" folder. Your mail service (gmail, yahoo, etc.) have the sent folders Mail apps like Mail, Outlook, or GMail just access the sent folders. Which app are you using? – Allan Feb 6 at 15:44

Try this:

Go to your Sent folder

Tap on the Edit Button on the top right

Select the first email in your list

Hold down the "Move" button

While you are still holding the Move button, deselect the first email

Put away all your fingers from the screen and wait a few seconds

Now Mail asks you where to move All of your emails

Select the Trash-Folder

Inside the Trash Folder, you can delete all items at once

  • @user3439894 its a quotation but edited – user310476 Feb 7 at 17:32
  • It was not quote highlighted before, so it was something I though your wrote. BTW When I quote something to be used in an answer, I typically clean up any errors, technical and grammar, while noting such changes were made by me as appropriate. In this case just cleaning up the crud is enough. :) – user3439894 Feb 7 at 18:53
