I am using LG L3II E430 mobile with standard Android email app.

Can I delete multiple emails?

DISCLAIMER: This is based on the stock email app on a Samsung Galaxy S4.

If you click on an email quickly, it opens that email.

If you long-press on an email, it selects that email without opening it. Then if you click another email, it also selects that. Now, you have two selected emails. You can then click the delete button to delete both emails.

FWIW: This is also true on my Nexus 5. – dotVezz May 6 '14 at 15:30
In the email list, tapping on the contact icon (or the colored letter representing the contact if it has no photo) also selects the e-mail. – Chahk May 6 '14 at 16:54
@Chahk, is that the case on the non-Gmail email app as well? – dotVezz May 8 '14 at 13:44
@dotVezz Yes, i just verified it. – Chahk May 8 '14 at 13:44

Tap on the Contact icon or colored letter according to the Starting Letter of your mail Sender and select multiple mails that you want to delete it!
