Hello sir !

Empty Trash Can


In 1982, when Apple created the Apple Lisa user interface, they implemented what they called the Trash Can. The trash can is essentially purgatory for files a user no longer wants. Once sent to the trash, the user has the option of restoring the file back to its original place, or annihilating it completely from the computer’s hard drive. Unless there is a backup of a user’s system from before the file was sent to the trash, there is essentially no way of restoring that file once the trash has been emptied.
This metaphor was carried over to Windows 95 in the form of a Recycle Bin. Perched on the desktop of countless millions of averages users was this bin which, when empty, looked empty, and when it contained files, looked full.
There is safety in the Trash Can metaphor. I know that in order to really delete a file from my system, either on Windows or on Mac OS X, I really have to work at it. Yes, there are times when files are accidentally deleted, but for the most part if I realize my mistake before I empty my Trash, I know the file is safe.

Whats the difference between trash and junk and how can I get rid of junk quickly?


Trash would be anything that you delete that comes from people you get email from. Junk would be like junk mail...unwanted or spam emails. Usually junk/spam email deletes instantly so you cannot retrieve it if you make a mistake. Trash usually deletes in 30 days. Some email servers allow you to change those settings as well

How do I empty trash email on iPad 4


How to delete or move ALL emails at once in non-jail broken ipad or iphone
It took me weeks of research to figure out finally how to decode this yet another secretive secret of apple. There is a perfect way of deleting ALL emails at once without jailbreaking your iphone or ipad...and here it is:
>> Open Inbox >> Edit >> Mark All >> Mark As Read [Added May 21, 2014 by Adrian; this extra step makes the difference between success & failure for some.]
>> Open Inbox >> Edit >> Check/select the top message; it will highlight the move button.
>> Press and hold the move button and uncheck the message that you had checked earlier.
>> Lift all your fingers off from the ipad screen and leave it alone. Wait until all your messages pile up on the right hand portion of the screen (in ipad); iphone will give you the actual number of emails it has selected for the action. Now they are just waiting for your command to be moved ALL at once.
>> Choose trash to delete all of them or any other folder where u want to move them, like one piece. Remember this will replicate your action on the server so you will ACTUALLY move them or delete them on the server and not just the ipad.
Once you have moved all messages to the trash you can either leave them there for the scheduled cleaning or empty it right away by doing this: go to trash folder and touch Edit. The Delete All button shows up at the bottom of the screen. Hit it! You're done!
If you do not see the effects of your actions on the server make sure you have enabled your email accounts for such actions.
Tips:
1. Please give enough time (could take up to several minutes depending the number of emails to be moved) for the emails to be selected for the move. Your screen will become unresponsive while all emails are being packaged. Once emails are ready, in ipad, you will see them zoomed out on the right hand side of the screen, and in iphone you will see the message showing you the actual number of messages that have been selected.
2. Avoid purging very large number of emails, the mail app might freeze or crash. If your inbox has thousands of emails change your sync settings in mail settings to fill lesser number of emails in your inbox.
3. [Added Jul 20, 2014 by Adrian] Many people have reported needing to repeat the above procedure several times before it succeeds. (I too have found this to be necessary a few times on my iPhone but not on my iPad-go figure.) So my final tip is to repeat the procedure 3-4 times if the mail doesn't disappear the first time. In my experience, if your messages disappear momentarily and then reappear, repeating the procedure will eventually make them stay deleted for good.
4. [Added Sep 18, 2014 by Adrian] If you are using IOS 8, there is a setting that may reduce emails piling up on your device! Go to Settings -> Messages and select Keep Messages under the Message History header. You'll be able to choose to keep your messages for 30 Days, 1 Year, or Forever.

When I go to email on my Ipad my Inbox is overflowing with old emails that I had previously deleted on my desktop, how do I get rid of them quickly and stop others coming in


Settings/Mail, Contacts, Calendars then tap the account you're having trouble with.

Assuming you're using an IMAP account, tap the account user ID on the first line. Scroll to the bottom and tap Advanced.

Tap Deleted Mailbox. In the ON THE SERVER section, tap Trash (making the Trash mailbox on the server your "Trash" location). Back up to Advanced and make sure MOVE DISCARDED MESSAGES INTO: is set to Deleted Mailbox.

You may want to do the same thing for your Sent Mailbox (using Sent on the server for sent messages - so they're retrievable from your desktop).

This fix may result in all the old deleted messages on the iPad being moved to the server and then showing up again in your deleted messages on your desktop. The Mail app will eventually delete them as it does any deleted messages according to its settings.

Empting the trash can when I am through putting my old emails in it


Dear Thomas,
There is an easy way to empty the trash folder on your iPad email app. Here is how:
1. Open the "Mail" app on your iPad.
2. Tap on the upper-left icon in the Mail app. It might say, "Mailboxes" or in my case, it says "Gmail".

3. Tap on the email account you are using. Mine says, "Gmail", yours might say, "Yahoo" or whatever program you are using.
img_0355.png 4. Tap on the "Trash" folder for your email account.
img_0356.png 5. Now that you are looking at the items in the trash folder, tap on the "Edit" button located just to the right of the word, "Trash".
img_0357.png 6. Tap on the "Delete All" icon at the bottom of the screen.
img_0358.png 7. A larger "Delete All" button will appear. Tap on that as well.
img_0359.png 8. In a few seconds (or longer if you have lots of messages in the deleted folder) all your messages will be gone and the "Trash" folder will be empty.

I recently deleted some important e-mails from my deleted hotmail (last 3 months) that I really do need to retreive. Thank You


It depends on how your hotmail was setup on your iPad. If it was setup as POP3 connection, then you can still retrieve your email using a broswer to log into Hotmail.

If it was setup as IMAP then whatever you delete from your iPad will be delete on Hotmails server as well. Double check your Trash folder to see if its still in there. If that has been deleted, then there is no way to get your mail back.

How can i view the trash folder on ipad 1?


There is no trash folder on iPads, but you may be able to view the trash folder for the deleted email.

For instance if you use Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail, you could log into the web version of those services and check the trash bin and recover from there.

Hope that helps!

How to empty trash in apple ipad


In general, an iPad doesn't have a trash at all. Since you don't have access to the file system, files cannot be user-modified or deleted, so a trash is not necessary. Further, apps will generaly take care of their own cache and data usage, so user interventions doesn't generally occur. If you are talking about mail, try using the usual delete functions while navigating the Trash folder and you should permanently delete the message.
Hope this helps, Alistair

Where is the trash bin on the IPad??


Hi,
As mariolands said, there is no trash bin because Apple wants to make the device as simple as possible for users to use. Actually, if you think about it, a trash/recycle bin is not even necessary as the user does not need to worry about things like that.
If you were wondering how to remove apps, then you have to hold any app icon on the home screen for several seconds until they start wiggling. As they begin to wiggle, you should see a cross in the top corner of each app. To delete an app, just tap on the "x" and it should be deleted.
As for the mail, once you're in the mail app, just swipe right on the message you want to delete and an option to delete will appear on the right. Alternatively, you can tap Edit at the top right and select the message(s) you want to delete.
Hope this helps, -virjog
