I had 2,510 email messages – mostly from Freecycle because I haven’t checked it for awhile – and wanted to start all over. However, if I wanted to delete my messages all I knew how to do was select 100 and delete. This would have taken me a long time. A very long, long, long time!!! Found this post – and two seconds later I was done! Just thought I’d share the love.
Here’s what it says:
I am assuming you can login to Yahoo Mail Beta, which resembles an outlook express program:
* If not, then change your layout to Yahoo Mail beta.
* Use firefox or IE to make sure AJAX works well.
* You will see all the messages in one page (as in outlook express program)
* Press Ctrl-A after selecting any message in the inbox.
* Hit Delete.
