The iPhone is a smartphone device first brought to the U.S. by Apple in 2007. In addition to browsing the Web, using a wide variety of applications and consuming media on the iPhone, you can also read and write e-mails. If you're looking to delete your entire e-mail history, there is no "delete all messages" option on the iPhone, but there is a faster way to delete your e-mail history than removing each message one at a time.
