Who knows why?”
Seriously? I am sure it is because they got too many complaints about people who deleted all their e-mails unintentionally and complained “WHY IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE”?
So once again, we were hobbled by the SUPER loud minority of people who don’t know what they’re doing, but whenever they make a mistake, it is not their fault.

Looks like you’re right! Now, if Apple doesn’t remove this again (as they did in 2016).

I think with the latest OS it is now possible to select all and move them all to trash without any special steps!

Thanks.

Microsoft has this one, why can’t Apple fix this nonsense. In Outlook on a PC you just click on the first msg you want to delete, hold down the shift key, scroll to the last message and click on it. All messages between first and last are highlighted. Then click delete and they all go to trash. There’s an “Empty Trash” option so it only takes seconds to trash those hundreds of messages that came in while you were not looking.
As another post noted, Apple has removed the “Trash All” option in later versions of IOS – why would they do that?

I had been using Microsoft Outlook for a while as an alternative to see how I would get on.. In the end Microsoft Outlook won hands down ..
