Are you tired of your cluttered email inbox on your Android phone? Deleting emails can be a tedious task, especially if you have hundreds or even thousands of them.

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of deleting emails on your Android phone. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Email App

To begin the process, open the email app on your Android phone. The app icon is usually located on your home screen or in the app drawer. Once you locate it, tap on it to open the app.

Step 2: Select the Email Account

After opening the email app, you will see a list of all your email accounts. Tap on the account from which you want to delete emails. This will open up the inbox for that particular account.

Step 3: Navigate to the Inbox

In the inbox, you will see a list of all your received emails. Scroll through the list and find the email(s) that you want to delete.

Step 4: Select Emails

To select multiple emails at once, tap and hold down on one email until it is highlighted. Then, without releasing your finger, swipe up or down to select additional emails. You can also tap on individual emails one by one to select them.

Step 5: Delete Emails

Once you have selected all the emails that you want to delete, look for a trash bin icon or a delete button at the top or bottom of your screen. Tap on it to delete the selected emails.


If there is no visible option to delete emails, look for an overflow menu (usually represented by three dots) or a settings icon. Tap on it, and you should find the delete option from there.

Step 6: Confirm Deletion

After tapping on the delete button, you will typically be prompted to confirm the deletion. This is to prevent accidental deletion of important emails. Confirm by tapping “Yes” or “OK” when prompted.

Step 7: Empty Trash (Optional)

If you want to permanently remove the deleted emails from your device, you may need to empty the trash folder as well. Some email apps automatically move deleted emails to the trash folder instead of permanently deleting them.


The steps to empty the trash folder may vary depending on your email app. Look for an option like “Empty Trash” or “Delete All” within the app’s settings or options menu.


By following these simple steps, you can efficiently delete unwanted emails from your Android phone. Keeping your inbox clean and organized will not only save you time but also improve your productivity. So go ahead and declutter your email inbox today!
