I have a MacBook Air. How do I delete batches of emails at once?

I know I can delete item by item, but isn't there a way to block big groups of emails and delete them from my inbox?

Deleted mail in my folder and I need to retrieve it

Hello there!

Without knowing what email provider you're using, I'll have to give you a generalized tip.

With most email providers, you'll have a "trash bin" or "deleted" folder in your list of areas when looking at your inbox. They're usually on the left side.

Try looking there for one of the mentioned items. Once you find it, click on it to view its contents. Assuming that you've not "emptied" your trash / deleted items, your "runaway folder" may just be in there. Most email providers will also allow you to right-click, or restore (put the item back where it was before it was "deleted") your items.

I hope this answer is helpful for you!

I can't save anything to my mac book pro

If you have downloaded stuff from the internet, that stuff goes to your Downloads folder. Try deleting any files in the downloads folder that you no longer need (such as .zip installer files).
Also, in case you don't already know, after you delete files, the files are still on your hard drive until you empty your Trash.

If you already know how to do all that, here's another method:
• Select several files (up to 2 GB total)
• Compress them into one "zipped file" (right-click/control-click & choose "Compress x items"
• Email the zipped file to yourself for free, using WeTransfer (just click "Skip" when you visit, because you will be greeted with an offer trying to sell you WeTransfer Plus).
• Be sure to use your email address as the "sender" & "recipient".
• The files will be available for you to download (using a link which will be emailed to you). You can delete the files after you receive the email with a link to download your files. However, this is a temporary fix, because you will have to download the files before WeTransfer deletes them.

After you free up some space, get GrandPerspective for Mac , which is a free Mac app for seeing where your big files are.

Also, a cheap/easy solution will be to get a cheap USB thumb/flash drive and copy important files onto it, then delete them from your MacBook. You can get about 32 GB for about $10 if you search or

How to delete multiple emails on mac air

Two options for Deleting multiple mail messages:

1. The video below shows how to delete a single mail message. To delete multiple mail message you would do the same thing except to delete several mail messages that are in chronological order you would select the top and hold shift....and scroll down to the last message you want to delete and click on that message which will highlight all messages in between the firs and last message you selected. Release the Shift Key. And Delete.

2. To delete multiple messages that aren't in chronological order click on the first message you want to delete. The press and hold the Option Key (Windows Key if you have 3rd Party Keyboard) and select each message you want to delete and it will highlight all those messages individually. After you select all messages you want to delete let go of the Option Key and click on the Delete icon in the mail menu bar.

This places the deleted emails in your Trash folder within mail. To permanently delete the messages...Right Click on the Trash Icon or hold down Control and then Click on the Trash Icon and select Erase Deleted Items from the drop down menu and they will be permanently deleted and won't take up space on your hard drive.

How do i erase thousands of emails

There is probably a smart way to do this but I don't know it!
What I do is open the list of emails to as big a screen full as possible.
If the screen is divided, you can click and hold the divider, and pull it to the bottom of the screen.
Click on the top one to delete.
Go down to the bottom of the screen, Hold down the SHIFT key, and select the bottom one. That selects all on the screen. Right click and select Delete. That deletes the batch. Inb theory you can go down to the last email of the 1,000's and delete the lot, but it ties up the computer for an unknown time and you wonder if it is doing anything.
