What ever you are using you should be a "Select All" tickbox above the first email. Tick that and all should be selected, then just press delete. Then it may go to "Deleted" folder and you may need to delete from there.

If you have different folders, you will have to select all for each folder or just delete the folder.

Delte all emails at once Is delete all


It depends on your mail program.

Outlook online (using your bowser) only allows you to select messages per page, so you can only delete a maximum of one page at a time.

Thunderbird (running on your pc) The whole inbox is available to be deleted in one go.
Using the command Control+a (select ALL), you can then delete all the mail in the inbox in one go, by hitting the delete key.

Most offline mail prrograms act like Thunderbird.
But the mail program needs to update the mail server on line, so this might take some time, to synchronise the offline inbox with the online inbox.

I cannot access my emails


Do you have a Yahoo email account? There are times your Inbox email will not appear in your inbox if you use Yahoo. They have new mail now and it does not load emails nearly as fast as before the Yahoo email format was changed.

Can,t opem my e-mail page


Which email account ?
If you currently have an e-mail address or you're thinking about getting one, you need to know how to access your account to check your messages.

Open a new browser and go to your e-mail provider's website.
To ensure that you navigate to the proper site, type your e-mail provider's URL (or website address) into the address bar at the top of the page.

Locate the "Mail" icon on the homepage.
Click on that mail icon and you will be directed to the appropriate sign-in page to access your e-mail inbox.

Provide your correct login details.
You will need to type your username/ID and password into the appropriate boxes and click the button that says "Sign In."

Click on the link that says "Inbox."
Once you click on the inbox link, you will have access to all of your messages, both old and new e-mails.

The unread mail is usually in bold, which makes it easier to identify your new messages.
Simply click on the subject of that e-mail to read your message.

How do you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file


Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.

Email messages occasionaly disappear after being cancelled , cannot be found anywhere?


If you canceled or deleted you can retrieve them in most web email clients.

GMail:
If you've deleted a message permanently, by clicking Delete Forever in your Spam or Trash, it isn't possible to recover the message.
If you've moved a message to Trash, by clicking Delete, but it's been fewer than 30 days and you haven't permanently deleted it, follow these steps to put it back in your inbox:
  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click Trash along the left side of any Gmail page. (If you don't see Trash along the left side of your Gmail page, go to the Labels tab in Settings, then click the show link next to the Trash label.)
  3. Locate the message you'd like to move to your inbox, and check the box next to the sender's name.
  4. Click Move to Inbox.
Yahoo:
Of course, you can also undelete a message quickly as long as it is still in your Yahoo! Mail's Trash folder.
Undelete Mail in Yahoo! Mail To undelete a message in Yahoo! Mail or Yahoo! Mail Classic:
  • Go to the Trash folder.
  • Open the desired message.
  • Click Move in the Yahoo! Mail toolbar.
  • Select Inbox or any other folder to recover the message.
    • In Yahoo! Mail, you can also drag and drop the email to any folder, of course.
Also you can serach on Yahoo itself by look at the left upper corner you can see a search bar if you
remember some info. from the sender.

I want to retrieve mail from inbox(mailbox) with include search also by using pop3 protocol. my coding was work properly but after sometimes messages are deleted in server. please tell one solution...


Are you looking for a way to avoid messages to be deleted from server and see messages only from that mail ID in your inbox or how program to retrieve mails from that mail ID only. If the first, you can set the account settings of your mail client and specify not to delete messages and to keep a copy of messages on the server by using the Advanced tab of the account setting on your mail client such as outlook express.

Computer won't delete items from inbox on outlook express


Do you have IMAP on your email server? IMAP is a duplicate of what you have in your email program, if your not deleting the messages on the server but only on your email program then your server space will be full and it will give people that send you email that message.

Cant delete mail from inbox.


You can try contacting Yahoo! Mail support. The only way someone can try to delete your inbox is if you give them your password....I shouldn't have to tell you what a bad idea that is. Go through Yahoo!'s support system, and have them do it for ya.
