    In the Inbox, tap Edit. Then mark 1 email. Move will appear somewhere. In my case, it's at the bottom. Tap and hold Move, and unmark the email you've marked before. Let go of Move. Then you'll get the number of emails in the Inbox at the top, and you can decide where to move them all. It works the same in the Sent folder.

    In Trash, simply tap Edit, then you can delete them all - Delete All appears at the bottom.

    i tapped on "edit" and got "mark all" - i tapped on "mark all" and got the following options:-
    flag
    mark as read
    cancel -
    there was no option to delete -

    a subsidiary question - how do i ensure that i get an email when someone replies to my thread etc.

    Somewhere at the top of the thread you should find "Watch Thread", or "Unwatch Thread". If it's the first option, simply tap it, and make sure you select "and receive email notifications". If you find Unwatch Thread, tap it and unwatch the thread. This will change it to Watch Thread, and you can follow the procedure described at first.

    If you wish to receive emails every time you posted in a thread, or created a thread, go to your profile and select Preferences. Enable "and receive..."

    Save changes afterwards.

    Tap Edit at the top right:

    Now mark 1 email only:

    At the bottom, Move will turn blue. Tap and hold it, while unmarking the email you've marked before:

    Then lift your finger, so you don't hold Move any more. Now you can move all of the emails to a different folder:
