Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Delete Letters in Your Mailbox
Your mailbox has a limited amount of space.
As you build new friendships and even play with real-world friends in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s likely that your in-game mailbox will soon be overflowing with letters from animals, other players, Dodo Airlines, and more.
Your mailbox can hold a lot of letters -- up to 300 -- and you can keep it organized so that only your favorite letters (those you want to keep) stand out. If you ever want to organize your mailbox by deleting unwanted letters, this is how to do it!
Open your mailbox and select the letter you want to throw away.
Press the “-” button on your controller.
Select “Throw Away” to confirm you want to throw the letter out.
And that’s all there is to it! Once you select “Throw Away,” the letter will be permanently deleted. But don’t worry! If you’ve marked a letter as a “Favorite,” it can’t be thrown away, even if you accidentally select the “Throw Away” option.
