    I'm sure this is covered somewhere, but I can't find it. How can I delete the long list of sent, read and deleted messages that seem to be stored in my native email?

    I've wondered about this recently, and I've not found answer. Looks like you'll have to do what I did, and delete them one by one, good luck! Oh, and a tip; turning of the 'notify before deleting' function will make deleting faster.

    I delete inbox or read messages the same way, swipe down from the top while the app is open, choose Select and then either select individual messages or put a finger on the first you want to delete and then another finger/thumb on the last you want to delete. Check marks for delete should show, then just do the trashcan and go from there. I hope this addresses your question, if not just ignore please.

    OK, I never knew how to do this until I read Tofnow's post, Thanks!

    Here is the way I did it:

    Open Messages app.
    swipe down from top of frame into app (you should see icons across top - Messages/Compose Email/Sort/Select/Settings/Help
    Choose the icon that says Select - Check boxes appear next to each email
    tap checkbox for emails you want to delete - checkmarks appear.
    when ready tap the garbage bin down in right hand corner of screen
    Worked great!
