How do I delete all e-mails for good

The answer varies wildly depending on where your email is. Where it's really physically stored. This is mostly determined my the kind of email account you use.

Most places now use something called IMAP and that basically means your email is stored someplace else. In the cloud if you like. That also means you don't really have control. It all depends on the backup procedures on the mail server. Most corporate email is preserved indefinitely on the company's mail server. All you can do is delete the messages and then empty the "trash".

Next is a web based mail like gMail. For these there delete the unwanted messages and then find the "Trash" then empty the trash. Once again there may be a backup at the provider lingering. You can't control that.

Finally there is what called POP3 mail. This is less common now but you have the actual message history stored locally on your computer's hard drive. In this cased deleting and emptying the trash will really remove the massages.

So the short answer is delete and dump the trash.

How do you empty the sentbox in incredimail?


A: The 'Deleted Items' folder contains the email messages deleted from your other folders. It is recommended that you empty the 'Deleted Items'folder from time to time, to avoid the build up of old and unnecessary email, which may slow down your email environment.

To empty the 'Deleted Items' folder, simply right-click the folder and select 'Empty 'Deleted Items' Folder'. If the 'Deleted Items' folder is not emptied, please follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the IncrediMail Tray Icon (orange envelope), located in the lower right corner (near the computer clock), and select 'Exit'.
  2. Windows 2000 or XP users: Browse to the following location:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile(Logon Name)\Local Settings\Application Data\IM\Identities\{Long Number}\Message Store

    Windows 98 or ME users: Browse to the following location:

    C:\Windows\Application Data\IM\Identities\{Long Number}\Message Store
  3. Delete the 'Deleted Items.imm' and the 'Deleted Items.imh' files.
  4. Open IncrediMail. Next time you wish to empty your 'Deleted Items' folder, simply right-click the folder and select 'Empty 'Deleted Items' folder'.

How to delete Junk mail without going to each one

1.Create folders within your email program to store your emails. Make the folders appropriate for storing the emails you receive. For example, if you regularly receive emails from certain people, make a folder to store emails from each person. Make folders to store professional emails and personal emails, and make subfolders within each to further categorize and sort your emails.

2.Set your message rules to route your emails to your specific folders. Many email programs have different levels of junk email filtering. Choose a low or high setting based on the volume of junk mail you receive. Once you have created message rules and junk email filtering, the junk email will be easily noticed when it arrives in your main inbox. Your email program will also attempt to recognize junk mail and will send it to junk and spam folders.

3.Take a few moments each day to browse through your email folders to review the emails you receive. Important emails sometimes get routed to the wrong folders, and they can go unnoticed if you do not check your email folders regularly.

4.Open your spam or junk mail folder and make sure these folders do not contain any emails you wish to keep. If there are emails that are not junk, drag them to the inbox or another folder for storage. Depending on your email program, you also may highlight the email and find a "Not Junk" option to alert your program that this email does not belong in the spam folder. Once you are sure the folders contain only junk mail, highlight one email folder. Press "Control-A" to highlight all of the emails in the folder. After highlighting these emails, press the shift key at the same time that you press the "Delete" button. This will delete all of the emails without sending them to the deleted folder.

5.Manage your junk email filter by opening the "Options" in your email program. From here you can add "Safe Senders" or "Blocked Senders" to either list.

To recover permanently deleted mails from my yahoo inbox

When messages are deleted in Yahoo! Mail, they are transferred to the trash folder. If a message was deleted by mistake, simply find it in your trash folder and move it to your inbox or another folder in order to recover it.
The trash folder can be deleted at any time. It can also be manually deleted by clicking the "Empty" link next to the trash folder in the left navigation bar. Next, you will see a prompt asking if you're sure you want to delete all messages. Click "Yes" to delete or "No" to return to the previous page.

Please Note: Once messages are emptied from the trash folder, they are permanently deleted from the Yahoo! Mail server and cannot be recovered.
please vote.
