Easier way to delete an email?

Sprint HTC Touch Pro 2

When I am reading an email, is there an easier way to delete other than having to hit the menu button and then delete?

Re: Easier way to delete an email?

if you have the keyboard open you can use the FN and back space keys for "del" its the fastest way i've found to clean out the inbox

I'm not sure it's easier, but you can long press anywhere in the message body and select delete. Takes longer than menu->delete though.

Re: Easier way to delete an email?

i use keyboard controller to map volume keys to be up and down only in email. then it is easy to scroll up and down in the inbox and delete mail with the left softkey. so usually i just close emails when done reading them and then scroll through the inbox deleting ones i've read.

Yes that's cool. +1 on the thanks. Funny how we set up these things for general uses (like a control key) and completely forget app-specific options. Can someone post the keyboard config (or did you already do it in the "post your keyboard config" thread). Save me some precious time learning how to do it...

Another tip I discovered in email (not sure if this is widespread knowledge or not)...at least on the stock Sprint 6.5 ROM, if you touch an email in the inbox view way to the left, just over the little message icon, you get an instant context menu that you can use to delete. So it's a way to select and delete a single message the way you used to be able to do by navigating with the d-pad. Kind of a nice feature.

Can you explain in more detail how you did this and how exactly it works. Also are any special programs needed?

Thanks

Re: Easier way to delete an email?

Since this is on the topic of deleting emails, is there any way to delete the email without getting the NAG screen when deleting the email? Maybe a registry hack?
