  • DeleteMail: Delete/Archive All Mail At Once


    When it comes to tweaks, I'm in it mostly for functionality. I'm not too much into funny little goofy toggles that do random things. I'm all about tweaks that are used to perform a function better than if I did not have them. So far, I've been pretty satisfied with the results. Probably the application that is most practical with tweaks is the Mail.app. I had just about every one until yesterday with the release of DeleteMail. Here's what it's all about and why I'd recommend it.



    DeleteMail adds cool feature to the Mail.app client for those of us who actually organize our inbox (don't worry, there have been times when I don't care myself). For those who use IMAP and archive your mail, this comes in handy quite often. Even if you use POP it's great too. What it does is adds a "Delete All" or "Archive All" functionality to the delete button after hitting the "Edit" button in your inbox. It's quick, easy, and saves a bunch of time when it comes to having to archive or delete every email in your inbox. To enable and disable DeleteMail, you'll find a settings toggle in the DeleteMail tab in the Settings.app.

    Name: DeleteMail
    Author: Andrea Oliva
    Version: 1.0-1
    Price: $.99

    At the last minute, thankfully, I was able to get a hold of Andrea and ask him a few questions about DeleteMail.

    JOSH: What gave you the idea to make DeleteMail?
    ANDREA: A friend of mine gave me the idea to create this.

    JOSH: How long did it take you to make DeleteMail?
    ANDREA: It took me about 3-4 days.

    JOSH: From a scale, 1-10, how hard was this tweak for you to create?
    ANDREA: Medium so like 4-5.

    JOSH: Any planned additions or implementations coming up for DeleteMail?
    ANDREA: More supports for 4.0 are coming very soon.

    Check this out, and post your thoughts here!

      You can use an Amazon or Paypal or other account to buy these apps- or simply not buy them. Or, of course, you can wait and install a hacked copy and rip off some guy trying to make a few bucks with his time and effort.

      I may sound old, but I used to buy gas for 22 cents a gallon. What's that got to do with the price of bread?
      Sound old? Dude can you see the screen j/k

      Not only are we "boding" (be an omen of a particular outcome ) together, we are bonding together.

      First off, liking the articles Josh!! Keep up the good work man

      I kind of like this tweak, although I really need it for my "Bulk Mail" folder which gets ridiculously flooded. If someone is tight with Andrea please ask him to add the bulk mail folder lol

      Doesn't seem to be working for me. iPhone 3G, iOS 4.2.1. I have it enabled via settings, but hitting edit doesn't change the delete button at all. I still have to mark the emails one by one as usual, to delete them. This applies to the "All Inboxes" inbox, as well as each individual inbox.

      There's a new update that supports 4.0 and 4.1 that just released this morning. Update and that should fix the issue.
