Deleting G Mail Bin and Junk from iPhone 6 s plus

  Yimbo 15:11 11 Nov 2019

Used to be that "Edit > Select All" gave the option to "Delete". But now, it seems, I have to select items one by one, and only then "Delete". Very tedious! How do I get back to the former way?

What are the three options at the bottom of the screen after you have selected all?

When I “select all” the three options are: mark - move- archive - no delete unless selected singly

That is because Gmail is set to archive not delete.

Go to Settings > Passwords & Accounts > "your Gamil account > Account > Advanced and change Move discarded messages into 'Deleted Mailbox'

Thanks Bremner — done what you said, but still no “delete” option when I go to Bin > edit > select all . Delete only appears when items are selected one by one
