Deleting several emails at once

Here is a short video showing how to delete several emails at once.  

 

This is my first video, I don't like my voice on video, and I am not a producer..

 

At any rate, here it goes..  I hope it helps people.

Re: Deleting several emails at once

Hey no problem!   I wish I were better at videos I would put up the most requested things to do..  I think some people learn better at seeing and doing vers being told the steps.

 

Have a great Christmas!

Re: Deleting several emails at once

Very helpful video! Thanks.

 

Just out of curiosity, have you found a way to "punch a hole" or multiple holes in the middle of the list (to exclude deleting a few of the messages between the start and end point)?

Re: Deleting several emails at once

No, if I have an email in the middle of the list, I just delete the emails on both sides.   I haven't figured out how to do what you're looking to do, similar to using the ctrl key vers the shift key in Windows.  It's something maybe they will consider in the future?

Re: Deleting several emails at once

In playing around with your question, I found another way to delete many emails.   You can delete emails prior to a certain date.

 

Select the date bar that is between each day's worth of emails.

Click the BB button

Click Delete Prior

 

This will delete all the email prior to that date.

Re: Deleting several emails at once

Thanks a lot for this post (and video)!  I had figured out how to do a full screen of deletes, but not over multiple screens...

Re: Deleting several emails at once

I loved the video. I was just signing on to the board today to ask how to do this.
