Need a shortcut for deleting over 5000 unwanted messages

I did not have internet for awhile. Over 5000 messages have accumulated in my email box. Is there a shortcut for deleting these messages without having to delete only 25 messages at a time.

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.

*I hope this will fix your problem.

How can i delete old email.


start at the first one you would like to delete
highlight that line
while holding down the shift key scroll down the list of e-mails until you get to the last one ( scrolling to the bottom line and still holding the scroll button( and shift key) down will bring up all e-mails that you cannot see) until the last e-mail appears on the screen
lift you finger of the shift key and scroll button and at this point all the e-mails will be highlighted
move the cursor to the delete cross at the top under the view heading and click on it
you will get a message that says do you want to delete all emails listed , press yes and wait until the screen goes blank and a message that says there are no emails here
Now you go to the trash /deleted item box , repeat the process and when you do all that the trash box will be empty as well and all unwanted e- mails will be gone

Why can't I recive my emails any more


Try logging into your account and deleting any unwanted messages not only from the in-box but also from your sent items (or whatever it may be called) since possibly you have a quota and all messages, sent and received, can combine to exceed that, so clearing out any sent messages that you need no longer may help.

You need to clear browser cache and cookies. If you are using Intenret Explorer, click on Tools and click on Internet Options. Under browsing history, click on Delete. Check Temporary Internet files, Cookies and History. Click on OK and OK again. It should fix the problem.

Will not let me open. I get an error message when I click on messages. To open I have to go thru my yahho


Hi,

Let me understand your issue. When you are logged in Yahoo messenger and you receive an email, you are not able to open it and it gives an error message to launch ?

If so,

Follow the below instructions to resolve the issue
You will have to set Internet Explorer as your default browser
You will have to Clear/delete unwanted files and cookies stored in your PC memory downloaded from Internet surfing. ( there is no harm in deleting the cookies/files downloaded while surfing )

1. Open Internet Explorer
Click on Tools from menu bar ( or you will find it on right side corner of Internet Explorer )
Click on Internet Options ( a window opens )
Under General Tab - Click on Delete button
Or
you may find Delete Files and Delete Cookies
Delete the files and cookies and click Apply button

2. Open Internet Explorer
Click on Tools from menu bar
Click on Internet Options ( a window opens )
Click on Programs Tab from top
You will find Default Web Brower
Click on the option Make Default
Click Apply button below and Click ok

Next time try to open the mail once you receive and it should open from the click without you opening yahoo mail page.

Everytime myself or husband open our accounts the whole internet crashes, then it opens your account but you cant send any emails as it crashes


Internet Explorer may corrupt. So please download it again and try. But before that try this. Delete cookies & temp file from the PC and then try to use that. Let me know the result.

Want to delete all unread emails


When first opening your email window you will see on the left top line above the first email the word delete
On the left of the enclosed box that has delete in it will be a check box. Click on that check box to the left of the delete box and then click on delete
Now all emails showing on that page will be gone
