    Hello,

    Do you have thousands of emails to delete in your Yahoo Mail?

    To delete all of your email at the same time you first need to get all the mail on one page:
    • Go to Options and select Mail Options

    • In the General section click the radio button to put all mail on a single scrolling page
    Yahoo Show all mail on the same page.JPG
    • Go back to your Inbox
    • Click the checkbox to select all message, then click Delete

    It is also possible to shift click delete a group of emails at the same time.

    In the latest version of Yahoo Mail, scroll down as many pages as you can, then:

    • Select All
    • Click the Delete button

    ============================================
    This is for the Full Featured version. It will
    work for the Basic version, but only for one page at a time.
    ============================================
    Also, you can change the Inbox format by clicking on SORT
    BY DATE above your inbox emails to make certain type
    emails go to the top for easier deletion
    ============================================
    If you place a check mark in the empty box to the left of
    DELETE above your inbox emails OR click on the down
    arrow to the right of this box and click on ALL OR clicking
    on "A" while holding down the CTRL button on your
    keyboard you will place a check mark to the left of ALL
    of your emails OR the first 50 emails. It seems to differ
    with some users. If you are one of those that it places a
    check mark to the left of the first 50....try these.
    ============================================
    Place a check mark to the left of the first email and then
    scroll down to the bottom of your emails and then hold
    down the SHIFT key on your keyboard and then click on
    the the box to the left of the last email. This will place a
    check mark to the left of all of them in between.. Click
    DELETE when done....If you want to save some click on
    the check mark to the left of that email to remove the
    check mark before deleting.
    ============================================
    Scroll to the end of your emails and THEN clickon the
    empty box above your inbox to the left of DELETE and this
    will place a check mark to the left of all of them.
    click on DELETE when done
    ============================================
    For just a few emails you can place a check mark in
    the box to the left of the email and click on DELETE
    or hover your pointer in the space to the right of
    the FROM name,which displays a trash can...click
    on that to delete.
    ================================
    Please take the time to choose a best answer..thanks
    Once your question has been posted for at least 1 hour
    and has at least one answer click on 'Award Best Answer'
    button next to your chosen answer.
    ============================================
