Is your Bellsouth email not working at its full speed? If yes, then your email account is inundated with a large number of emails, which you need to get rid of, especially the ones that you no longer require. If your email isn’t working smoothly, then you need to identify the useless emails and get rid of them.
While it is easy to delete emails on Windows or Android devices, but the same can’t be said for iOS devices. The emails instead of being deleted are archived in iOS devices, especially the ones running on iOS 11. The problem with emails being archived is the space they consume because they are not deleted from the system and affect the speed of the email account.
You need to send all unwanted messages into the recycle bin of the iPhone in order to make space in your email account so that it can work smoothly.
If you go into the settings of iOS 11, the iPhone and iPad email application (officially called Mail), then you will find that the emails are set to an ‘archive only’ setting. However, the good thing is you can easily adjust the app to show the ‘delete’ option.
No matter, which email account you are using or configured with the email app of your iPhone or iPad, you can easily make changes to the email account to let emails go into the recycle bin rather than any other account.
All the emails that you no longer wish to access can go into the recycle bin instead of the ‘archived’ folder. To confirm that the email app deletes unwanted emails, here are the steps that you can follow:
- Access ‘Settings’ on your Apple iPhone or iPad.
- Go to the ‘Accounts & Passwords’ option. Once found, tap it.
- Now, select the email account that you wish to change the settings for, which in this case is ‘Bellsouth email.
- Tap ‘Advanced’ on the next screen.
- You will see the option named ‘Archived Messages’ is checked, so you need to switch it to the ‘Delete Messages’ option.
That sums up the procedure of how to delete emails from your Bellsouth email account instead of archiving them in iOS 11. If the aforementioned steps fail to do the necessary, then you will have to get in touch with Bellsouth email experts to get the right Bellsouth email settings.
