Welcome to the forum.

Giving us as much information about the issue really helps us try and provide you with a solution.

Your post tells me you have 1690 unread emails. But you haven't asked a specific question about them?

I'm guessing you don't think they should be unread? and maybe you want to mark them as read?

Few bits of info first please:
1. Which iPhone do you have and which version of iOS?
2. Have you recently added this email account to your phone?
3. Who is your email provider for this account?

I can practically guarantee this is a POP-based email account.

I agree. Most likely a newly added pop account

Hope Iīm doing this right!

Yes, I want to a. find them, b. trash all of them, c. empty trash
When I push "Edit", I canīt mark all of them(although I donīt see all of them anyway). Then I Trash them, but I donīt know how to empty Trash in Settings

1. iPhone 5 with iOS 7.0.4
2. No
3. Swisscom(Swiss State Provider)

Do I always have to open e-mails and then delete them, or can I , which I have been doing,
delete them without opening them?

Thanks for any help you can give me,
Ron

In Mail touch edit - Mark All (or just touch the circle of te ones your interested in) then touch Trash
