Now it will be a little tedious and annoying to remove all emails in Inbox, Sent and Draft on Mail app in iOS 10. Although the "Trash" and "Junk" folders have the "Delete All" link to help your remove all emails in 1 click, "Inbox", "Drafts" and "Sent" folder doesn’t provide your "Delete All", which means you have to select the emails one by one and then start your deleting.
But you can select more than one email at one operation, and also can achieve deleting multiple emails on iPhone/iPad.
Step 1. Run Emails on your device.
Step 2. Go to Inbox or Sent and tap "Edit". Select emails and tap "Trash", or "Move" > "Trash".
