Thread: iDeleteMail

  1. #1
    Default iDeleteMail
    Anyone tried it?

    Says it allows for deleting multiple mail messages at once.

    Looks very promising.

    Yes. I just tried it and it works very well. For those of you who receive tons of email and have to manually delete each one, this is a great app!!!! It will delete all of them with one tap.

    Here's the source to get it via installer - http://iphone.r4m0n.net/repos

    I get TONS of mail, and this little app is a God-send

    Ok I'm giving it a try but I don't think it's working for me.

    I open my mail - download new mail.

    Exit the mail app and go into iDeleteMail and choose to delete all.

    Springboard resets.

    Go back into mail and the mail is gone but it just redownloads it all again.

    Maybe I need to change a setting?

    Using GMail IMAP.

    lgreenberg: I haven't tried the app with IMAP yet, but I guess it would need to delete the mail directly in the server, as Mail.app probably ignores the contents of it's local database and get it all again from the server... And I guess deleting the mail from the server wouldn't be the idea here...

    The for the response.

    You've made a cool app - but I guess it's not really for us IMAP users.

    You need to wait until your actual email boxes show up in this app before hitting the delete key. If all you see is "All Mailboxes" at the top, it won't work. Close the app, wait a second, and then re-open it. You should then see a list of your email addresses. Then you can choose Yes or No to delete all email.

    Now that I have upgraded to 1.1.3, I can not get iDeleteMail to work. When I launch it, there is a white screen for a bit, then an Error bubble pops up saying "Error accessing database (14). please report the error number to the developer." Beneath the bubble window, the screen shows a gray bar with All Mailboxes listed, and then "All Mailboxes" shown underneath - as if it can't find any email accounts.

    I am assuming that this is because email is stored differently on 1.1.3, but I am unsure of what to do to make this truly indispensable app work. Any ideas would really be appreciated! Thanks!

    I found this fix yesterday and it fixed this for me:

    Enter via terminal or Putty (or similar)

    mv ~/Library/* /var/mobile/Library
    rm -r ~/Library
    ln -s /var/mobile/Library ~/Library

    Then make sure you change all permissions on the Library folder and files to 0777.

    Thanks - it worked... although, I didn't need to change any permissions. I had seen that solution on the dev's blog, but hadn't tried it. I didn't want to chance messing things up, but since I could find no other way, figured I would give it a shot. And, so far, so good. Figured, the worst that would happen was to restore and do the "jailbreak shuffle" all over again, and that's not so hard to do.

    Does mv = move rm = remove and in = install? I'm trying to make sense of the above post so I can fix mine.

    I noticed that right after I did the dev team upgrade I had to change permissions on all teh 3rd party apps to get them to work, but recently apps seem to work as they are installed (for the most part). I believe thalt Installer has been fixed to install apps properly on 1.1.3.

    Default Patch not working:(
    I'm trying to enter the patch in Term-vt100 but I get the no such directory response.

    What am I doing wrong?

    TIA
