Default How to delete all (thousands) of emails at the same time

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

Now that Yahoo offers IMAP I think it's easiest to use Mozilla Thunderbird to to delete thousands of emails from a Yahoo account.

If you are using the full featured version of Yahoo Mail you can click the box in the top left of your inbox, then click delete.
