Windows 7 - delete multiple emails

Asked By nogrief612 on 05-Jan-10 12:12 PM
Somehow all my emails in my folders got copied to my inbox. How do I delete
the 5000 emails in my inbox all at once?

What inbox in what Mail Client or webmail account?

If you have already figured this out then ignore this.  Otherwise, I had
almost 12,000 e-mails in my deleted folder and I did not want to delete them
one at a time and I just finally figured out how to get rid of them.  Click
on the first e-mail that you want to delete, then scroll to the last message
that you want to delete, then hold down the shift key and click on this last
message that you want deleted.  All the messages should be highlighted and
now remove your finger from the shift key and click on the "red x" delete
key.  It took a few minutes to delete my almost 12,000 messages, so you can
try just a few lines first to make sure that it is working before deleting
the rest all at once.  This works in both the deleted file and the inbox
file.  Hope this helps.---Todd
