    Deleting an email without reading it

    Does anyone know how to delete an email (Yahoo mail) without opening it? I am getting a lot of junk email on my Atrix and I would like to delete them without reading. I have tried both apps "Yahoo Mail" that is in Blue color icon and "Yahoo!" that is in purple color icon. Yahoo Mail has a button on the top to delete. However it does not work when I tap it.

    I tried to swipe the mail to left and right hoping that it would delete but nothing happens.

    I got my Atrix last Friday and trying to learn it. Can someone let me know if there is a way.

    Thank you,

    I don't use the Yahoo mail apps on the phone, but I imagine there should be an option to select emails with a check box and then the delete button should work. Is there a check box next to each message? If not, by pressing the Menu button, can you find an option to select multiple?

    What about long pressing the message and selecting delete?

    In the main e mail settings there is an option to add select boxes and then delete.

    Just make sure the multiselect is checked.

    As long as you have the multiselect checked it should work with all your e-mail accounts.
