Re: want to delete my yahoo mail over 9000 quickly
1) Go to your inbox
2) Just above the list of messages is the word "Inbox" in fairly large letters. Right underneath, there is a link that says "View: All Messages." Click on this link. A dropdown will appear: click "All Messages" in the dropdown.
3) Be patient - all 9,000 messages will load onto this single page. Expect this to take a while. Go enjoy a cup of coffee.
4) When all the messages have loaded, scroll to the bottom and click the link that says "check all." Then click the "Delete" button.
It might take a few minutes to delete everything - again, be patient.

Hi, follow the steps below. Don't change any of your settings since they
already work, but when you get to step 7 this is where you check
whether or not you want to remove the emails from the sever.
Open Outlook 2003 then:
Click Tools ' E-mail Accounts.
Select Add a new e-mail account and click Next.
Select POP3, then click Next.
Enter the following information:
Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send an email message.
E-mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example, email@example.com).
Incoming mail server (POP3): Type pop.mail.yahoo.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type smtp.mail.yahoo.com
User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
Check the Remember password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
Do notcheck the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
Click the More Settings button. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
Select the Outgoing Server tab:
Check the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
Select the Advanced tab:
Under "Incoming server (POP3)," check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the "Incoming server (POP3)" field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, type 995.
In the Outgoing server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under it, check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, check the Leave a copy of messages on the server
checkbox. If you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo!
server once Outlook has downloaded them onto your computer, leave the
Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
Visit Mail.yahoo.com and log in to your Yahoo! Mail account. Click on the folder marked "Trash" on the left-control panel. View the folder's contents to see if your message is inside. If it is, place a check next to the message and click "Move To>Inbox." This restores the deleted message. If it's not, continue to Step 2.
Visit the Yahoo! Deleted mail retrieval page (see Resources). Click on the appropriate link to retrieve your mail, depending on which version of Yahoo! Mail you use. For New Yahoo! Mail, select "New Yahoo! Mail." If you are using Yahoo! Mail Classic, click "Yahoo! Mail Classic."
Type your name into the entry box, and then type your Yahoo! Mail user name. Select the date and time that you would like to roll your inbox back to. For best results, select a date and time 24 hours prior to the current time; this will improve the chances of Yahoo! being able to recover your deleted mail.
Type in a short message to give to the Yahoo! Mail account specialist, if desired. This is optional. If you'd like to describe your situation, feel free to do so, although it will not improve the chances of the specialist recovering your deleted mail. Click "Submit." Yahoo! will get back with you as soon as possible. You'll receive an email regarding the results of the email recovery.
You will need to go to www.yahoo.com contact page [ look on the bottom of the opening page] and simply ask them to restore the account. Sometimes Yahoo messes up and can delete an entire account. It happens Gary
You should change your password immediately. It happened to me one time, I couldn't sign on to my yahoo messenger and the software advised me to change the password.
It was resolved by changing the password.
How do you access your Yahoo mail? Is it via the browser (www.yahoo.com) or via MS Outlook?
If you're having a problem of sending/receiving emails while using the web browser, you may want to delete old and unnecessary emails. You could have reached the storage limit of your email account.
But if your using an Outlook, you need to double-check the account settings. Make sure that you have the correct user name, password, incoming and outgoing servers, incoming and outgoing ports.
If you setup your email account using the POP protocol, you may use these server ports:
Incoming: 110 or 995 Outgoing: 25 or 2525, or 587, or 465 (SSL)
Incoming: 143 or 993
Outgoing: 25 or 2525, or 587, or 465 (SSL)
If the same problem occur, you may try to delete your account and recreate it. Please bear in mind that if you deleted your account and recreated it, some emails may no longer appear or get downloaded.
If you are in a classic view in yahoo mail, the only way is if you switch to "All New Mail".
It has a continuous mail page which allows you to delete all at once.
Click on "more actions"---then, "Select All Messages" and then "Delete".
You can always switch back to Classic afterward.
