   If you tap the title bar in the application, you will trigger the main 
   menu. There is a Delete option there. If you choose it, you can click on 
   all of the emails you want to delete (multi-select) from the current 
   folder and then tap the Delete button at the top of the screen.

On chinook there was a menu item "Mark All". (I could mark all and then unmark
the few messages that I wanted to keep, if any). Here it seems that I have to
click on each message to select it. That can be tedious if there are hundreds.
