Mail is a native device application from Apple which allows you to synchronize your email accounts. With one interface simple and uncomplicated, in addition to providing organization, the app also has quick options from a swipe of the finger that, few people know, but can be disabled or modified.

On-screen swipe gestures are part of the ever-increasing optimization of apps. On iPhone, these are set by default, however they can be changed according to user preference.


For example, if swiping left the option is to mark the message as 'unread', you can change it in the settings by setting the gesture with options to 'flag' or 'delete' the message.
