Question Is it possible to delete junk mail on an IPAD all at once (MULTIPLE))?

I would like to delete junk mail all at once instead of selecting each one individuallly on my ipad. Can this be done and how?

you should be able to do this, but to help we need to know what version of Linux have you installed on your ipad, and what email client are you using.

It should "just work", you're obviously holding it wrong.
Ask a "Genius" since they're paid to answer questions like this.
(had a quick look on mine and no solution jumps out at me)

Click edit
Select a message
Tap AND HOLD the delete button
While still holding the delete button, deselect the message
Release the delete button, it should prompt you to delete all

If that doesn't work, try the same thing but with the move button, and it should let you move all messages to the trash.
