Delete All Messages In a Folder
Really, in today's world, sometimes the number of messages in a Folder gets large. Why make me delete them 50 or 200 at a time? Why not just DeleteAll? Please implement this simple thing. Otherwise, you will end up saving them for me forever.
Bring back the option to delete 1,2, or multiple emails at once rather than 1 at a time.
We need a delete all button for the inbox please
you folks should really have an easier way to erase all messages at once.i mean i have a lot of messages i don't like this little at a time thing. it frustrates me!!!!! so please do something about it.....
I need a delete box which will delete everything at once in the inbox. if this can't be done I might just need to cancel my account, if you could delete everything for me.
Allow us to delete in bulk - deleting page by page is REALLY tiring and takes WAY TOO LONG and makes me not want to continue using your email service as OTHERS allow this feature.
Like right clicking on a message a being able to delete ALL emails from that senders or something along those lines.
I understand I can click select all at the top but it ONLY selects whats loaded, so Id have to scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll just to get a few hundred and I have thousands I need to delete.
When we select/dropdown "view" above right hand corner of the inbox - create a tab to delete as many as 500,1000 messages at a time.
Delete the mail completely. Why are the routed to a folder anyhow? I have over 3000 mails in a folder I just found. This is very time consuming to delete 50 at a time.
Allow me to delete more than 50 emails at a time. This is ridiculously time consuming.
Why are we only allotted to delete 50 emails at a time in Yahoo? I get hundreds of messages a day and this kind of tomfoolery is unacceptable. I would like to delete ALL selected - hurr durr!!
i want to be able to have total control over the number of deletions i make at one time , if i want to delete all at the same time i should be able to do so ! but i can not! it really ****** me off!
The only way it seems I can delete my emails is by selecting the box for each page, 50 emails at a time, then hitting delete. It's unfortunate when I have years of emails, and it would take me way to much time than desire to do so. Is there an alternative to expediting the deleting process? Or is there possibly a way to reset my inbox? If not i'm leaving and never using this account again, so please help.
I would like to be able to delete all my sent messages with one click like I can delete all spam and trash with one click.
I need to delete all messages in my email account - showing 9999+ .... not just 50 at a time. Can that happen?
I am using Chrome and I can not delete messages inside a folder. When I select all or any messages and hit delete icon nothing happens. The same procedure works fine for inbox folder. But does not work for other folders.
I want to delete every email quickly - select all 3030 emails and hit delete and there they go away!!! My choice - It can have an am I sure box - but this has to be quicker, or I delete the account.
Also I want the ability to have emails dated one week or older to automatically go away!!!
Delete All Messages In Mail Folder
Either allow us to block (many) more than 500 addresses or give us good advice as to how we can safely and easily remove old blocked ones.
I have 500 blocked addresses.....which is far too few to cover all of the "scammers". Why do, even though the address is blocked, such as @towardthesolution.com, I CONTINUE to get those messages through to my email? Admittedly, they are in my "trash" folder but they should NOT appear anywhere..........
Let us delete ALL email, not just 50 at a time. I have way too much to sit here and do 50 at a time!
The only idea I have is to let us block more that 500 addresses.
Currently you can only delete 50 emails at a time. I have over 10,000 emails that I want to delete. This would require at least 200 delete operations. How about letting us delete the contents of a mail folder?
Make it where you can empty your inbox all at once instead of 50 at a time or at least make it where you can choose 100,1000, etc.
It would be great if we could sweep pages of emails to remove them. Outlook.com has this feature, and it is really convenient.
It allows only 50 at a time but have got 10000.Please provide a feature of Empty Folder like Spm
Can Yahoo get the Sweep Program like Hotmail so you can delete all emails in a category at one time instead of one at a time causing build up. I love that feature about Hotmail and the ability in that sweep to also block emails without having to type into a separate section the email you want to block.
Put the delete all box back. When you click on the name of a sender and it brings up all correspondence from that sender, there used to be a box to click to delete all, or you could just delete them individually.
Please add an additional link to your delete emails so that we can delete all of our emails t one time rather than only 50 to 100.
I want the ability to delete all mail in any folder (including inbox) all at once. I have some "ghost" addresses that I use & they constantly fill up with spam. I want to be able to just click one box (like outlook has) to just EMPTY the entire thing at once. Not page by page - expecially when there are several HUNDRED.
Please put an optional delete all mail buttion in the yahoo mail. I cannot delete thousands of emails when I go away for vacation.
So I have a folder with 9999+ emails (blame social networks notifications for every action). I want to empty this folder, if I click the checkbox it will check 50 only. Ok, scroll down and get more? you can get up to 300 before getting bored, then how many times you gotta repeat that to reach 9999+ ..come on
you need to improve how many emails you can delete at once, 50 is just not enough, not everyone checks there email everyday and having the option to delete all at once or increase the amount to 250 at a time would be helpful thanks
Make a one button delete all button instead of making people scroll down each mail just to delete. I have over 9000+ in my inbox make it quicker to delete them, I haven't been on for a long time, and Yahoo makes me scroll all the way down to the bottom before I'm able to check the delete button to delete all 9000+. Personally I would prefer yahoo to make their system delete these with a one button do all,instead of making me scroll down to the bottom to delete all,for mobile and desktop.
I want to be able to delete all my emails at the same time in my inbox.
My font is very small and I can hardly read it. How do I make it larger? I've looked everywhere and can not find the answer to this simple question. Very Frustrating!!!
How about making email easier to sort (used to be able to sort by sender) and have a freaking select all and delete that works. Do you guys test this stuff before you release to us? I wouldn't ever upgrade and pay for such a buggy service.
A delete all icon. I just spent 2 hours deleting over 2000 messages and then 5 minutes later they were all back. Very ridiculous
Delete the messages by pages instead of the starred messages.
please sir / madam delete all the mail from my yahoo id please it my humble requets
Add a DELETE ALL button. If you have one....I can't find it!
delete all mail in the inbox at one time please
Gives us back the option to choose how many inbox e-mails we can delete at one time. I use to be able to delete 250 at once and now I can only delete 50 at one time. That is very inconvenient for those of us who get large quantities of emails every day especially if we are unable to check our email everyday.
Would be nice to have an option to DELETE ALL for an inbox when you have too many msgs to go through each page, select all and then delete.
If there were an easy way (say in configuration - to delete all msgs before a certain date), YAHOO would save a lot on storage
How about you make it to where you can highlight the ones you want to keep. Then have an option tab to delete all un highlighted messages. I believe this will help you from deleting messages you want to keep.
I have 40000 e-mails and i want to delete them all. It's a lot of work if i delete only 250 e-mails once. Plese give a solution. Thanks!
just plain stupid that I have to check off each separate e-mail to delete them. takes a long time to check off 15-20 e-mails that you don't want I don't know why you have the delete box on the top header, cause it doesn't work anymore
Consider to implement a "delete all" button. When the mailbox is packed (mine has 9999+) it's IMPOSSIBLE to roll down the pages to check them all. And it even crashes during the porcess. Please, add an option to delete all the contents of the mailbox. Otherwise, the customers will create another address, beacuse the system just don't work. That's what I'm about to do.
And I would like to receive an answer to this suggestion/complaint.
make a delete all button
Please tell me how to delete all mail at one time
I receive and keep a lot of email. I also have a ton of unread email and would love an easy way to delete it all at once.
one button delete for all messages,,,emails,,,
I get a large amount of email every day . I only check my mail about once a week. It think there should be a way to delete every message one click instead of deleting 50 at a time. For me and others I know that takes forever!
Delete all e-mails option takes too long at 50 at a time
All of my emails prior to January 8th have been removed from my inbox. This is extremely frustrating as I rely on this as my main email address. That will no longer be the case I am switching to another more reliable provider.
it is better to delete more at a time than 50 ,50,50,50,50, oh and by the way if you are in with google all the **** questions to reset passwords suck who the flock is gonna remember all the **** you ask about when you set it up or what are some of the emails you sent out get over it no one remember all that ****
delete all emails at once
Why is it I can only delete 50 messages? Why can't I delete all?
How do I delete all mails from my inbox at once? Please assist.
Yahoo is the best!!
I have 35000 emails in my inbox and want to delete all of them at once. I would love an option to be able to do this.
I get nothing but spam now and have switched to gmail because it's so much better than yahoo. I keep this account as a throw away when I have to give an email address to something that I don't care about. It would be nice if I could just have all my email deleted upon receiving so that I wouldn't have to bother emptying my inbox every couple of weeks. AOL has this option why don't you?
I agree 100% with all of you. I've been with Yahoo since 1999. I've seen too many changes usually not for the better. Mail account is now the worst it's ever been. It will be a lot of work but it looks like I'm going to have to change all my email recipients Gmail unless Yahoo goes back to what worked well for me and obviously many others.
I would like to delete all my E-Mails at once instead of 50 at a time
I have some 16000 emails in my Inbox, I want to delete them all but can only delete 200/250 emails at a time which is frustrating. I use Gmail and it gives you option to delete all emails in Inbox or any other folder at once.
Also I cannot make use of filters by sending these 16,000 plus emails to Spam or Trash.
Kindly do something urgently about this issue.
delete everthing button
find a better way to delete more than 50 old messages at a time
the ok button is not highlighted so i cant delete all my emails.
im clearing my inbox for the new year
How can I delete all emails from my inbox at one time?
I WOULD TO DELETE ALL EMAIL IN MY INBOX WITH ONE CLICK LIKE GMAIL
How do you delete all your messages in all the categories. I'd like to keep this e-mail address but it's on overload
I'd like to be able to delete ALL messages from inbox. not just 50.
lost some messages
i have 30,000 emails in my inbox, i want to delete all unread email at once. please help me
Place a 3 step button in the mail box to allow you to delete all messages not saved into a folder. This would allow you to empty your mail box.
A delete by date setting/button - Enter a date and you can delete everything in the inbox that is older than selected date.
Both actions would allow someone to clean their mail box at one time of all the old stuff you will never get back to. And save yahoo a lot of storage space.
a tool similar to Microsoft outlook that I can click on and drag to mark all my emails. or a delete all messages option similar to a mobile phone.
I like to have the delete options whereby I can select "ALL" to delete. Removing it is aggravating, now I have to delete the unwanted emails one after the other thereby taking up my time. I might need to cancel my yahoo account which I have had for many years.
Can i select all older than 3 months messages to delete?
Delete, select all, deselect one or two, and the delete function fails.
An error in IE is the blame....
Its almost 2014, and this Yahoo Mail fails to work consistently. Why?
And I like the "Post Idea" button....very positive. I'm sure it redirects all users to a happier life. But Yahoo Mail is terrible
have option to delete all emails at one time
I'm soooo FRUSTRATED right NOW!!!! Please tell me why there is no feature to DELETE ALL EMAILS INBOX???? WHY?! I have a ton of spam and to go and unsubscribe to all is annoying (yes I've tried)! I have over 1200 emails and I can only delete "50!!!" at a time.
cant you make it easier to delete all of the mail at once???? I hate deleting it by 50 at a time that's why I have over 100,000 emails
can't navigate site with ease...very frustrating tell me how to delete all emails at the same time make it simple this new format is very unuser friendly very disappointed!!!
I wanna delete all emails from my inbox. help me plx how to done it easily
I must get in to begin deleting. Please email me at Carolyn_greenwood1@aol.com with an answer to how to do this! Thank you.
Let me delete all of the inbox DAMMIT!!!!!
Mail piles up like crazy. When you finally get the time to clean out your inbox, it takes forever as you load only 50 at a time. There needs to be a "Delete All" option to clear your entire inbox.
if i need to delete many of my messages page by page so it will take my time much
It is happening to me alot. When I delete the messages in my box and then I go to the trash to remove them , the deleted messages will still be in my inbox.
I have 30K email ... I'm not going to scroll down. Wtf
Why can't I do something as simple as delete all email at once?
Why can't I drag the inbox folder into the trash can to delete all???
Why is this so hard and its 2013 going on to 2014.
Sorry but I'm deleting my account, wait, i need instructions on how to do that too ...
who ever is in charge of changing this old format to a new one is just a *** ,and dosent know what the **** they are doing ,put it back ,all of it or we will not use your service ,this is bull **** ,
PLEASE, PLEASE add in an option as with the Spam and Trash folders for a "Delete All" or "Empty Folder" option!!! It is EXTREMELY frustrating to have to go page by page by page only able to delete 50 emails at a time... especially when you get hundreds and hundreds a week. ALSO, it would be exceptionally grand if there were an option to delete all emails from one sender.
i am not getting an option move forward to next page to see more email rather i need to scrowl down but if i want to delete only the next page onwards then how do i select those mail
If "Delete All" or "Empty All" option for Trash and Spam, it will be good to manage the inbox.
Hello! I figured out how to sort by sender now (with the magnifying glass), but when I check all and try to delete all, only some delete. I'm trying to get through all of my junk mail quickly. If I check all and hit delete, they should all delete.
would like to delete all in my inbox with one action
a button to get rid off all of the messages
I HAVE ON PROBLEM WITH DELETING OF ALL THE MAILS OF ONE MAIL ID, SO PLEADE GIVE A RESPONSE ON THIS..
Unlike other mail provides, yahoo don't provide an option to delete all the emails in an folder all together at the same time.
Have to go through them page by page to empty the folder, before we can delete the folder it self. won't allow to delete folder without emptying it first.
I can understand it stops from accidentaly deleting it, but if you could put a prompt to ask for permission, this should be enough for anyone with a bit of common sense.
Please provide option for mass delete and folder delete.
how can I delete all my messages from my in box all at once
I have over 20,000 unread emails. How do I delete them all at once? Please add a button to do this, like gmail has.
There are 11000 emails in my inbox so I want to cleanup my inbox and delete all emails older the 1 year (or 1 month). Is there such a kind of function?
would be nice to have a buttin to deleted all email at one time or at least more than 50 at a time
A button to delete all mail, not just 50, not just a folder, ALL MAIL. When you come on line and there are 1000's, it is such a waste of time.
I have not used this email address for quite awhile. I would like to start using it again. However, there are over 1000 inbox messages. I do not have time to delete 50 message at a time. I wish there was a one click button that said, delete all messages in inbox...
It's just stupid to not have this basic functionality. I tried to go around it by just trying to delete the folder hoping to recreate it later. But a message says I have to delete all the messages first to delete a folder! This is taking absurdity to a stupidly insane level!
IVE DELETED ALL. BUT THEY STILL ALL APPEAR IN MY UNREAD FOLDER. IF I CLICK ON ONE IT SAYS IT HAS BEEN DELETED. INFORMATION IS STILL LISTED HOW THE **** DO I REMOVE THESE GHOST E MAILS???
I just deleted 3060 emails 50-100 at a time..... C'mon! Where's that "delete all" button Yahoo..
I can delete 50 to 100. Then have to log out and log back in to MAYBE delete more. Even that doesn't always work. This never happened in the old Yahoo mail.
I have 10's of thousands of emails, I need a way to delete all QUICKLY!!! Not 200 or less at a time!!!
Bulk delete kind of works if the number of emails to delete is a couple of hundred. For sure that when it goes over a thousand, then bulk delete does not work. Please fix.
I archive my folder contents yearly and some of them have over 3,000 files! After a few years, I want to delete them, but it is not worth the trouble deleting 50 or 100 at a time; it's a real time suck compared to just deleting a full folder or deleting 3,000 files in one shot. So, I waste space on Yahoo's servers needlessly. I was a network admin before I retired and this drives my crazy!!! Moving files could be easier, too. The way I do it now, I create a temp file for the new records, move the new records to that, and rename the old folder to an archive name, like 2015-folder name. It would be easier to select 3,000 files in one shot and move them to a new folder, but the system limits me to how many files I can select at one time.
I wish I could delete emails by selecting range (from a date to a date) in any created folder.
I agree. Allow us to delete folders even with emails in them
The multiple delete feature once you have done a search works 5% of the time....I've given up
I cannot delete messages at all unless do them one by one. This is the most ridiculous email set up I have ever seen. I guess it is time to move to gmail. See ya Yahoo!!!
i have a bizillion as well, its annoying and eating up my space on my phone! doesnt matter how i tagg to delete whether on pc or phone, i go back next time and they are all still there.
i have YEARS WORTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please comment on this item!
I now have over 135,000 messages in my Yahoo Mail Inbox, and external mail clients have great difficulty in accessing new messages, using either POP3 or IMAP (I am specifically talking about Outlook 2007).
I just want the facility restored to be able to "Select ALL" messages in a folder and move them all from the Inbox to another folder wit a few clicks. This used to be possible before the changes in October 2013, but now, under the present set-up, it will take many, many days of selecting and clicking to do it.
If what others say is correct - that the number of messages which can be selected at any one time is limited to 50 - then I would have to perform this manual select-and-move operation 2700 times - by hand!
Doesn't this strike you as ridiculous? Especially when Yahoo Mail used to have this feature, and GMail has it?
This item has been shown as "Gathering Feedback" for more than 18 months, I believe. Please at least acknowledge these requests and give some response regarding what is happening. Some explanation as to why this basic feature was removed would be appreciated also.
Loyal *paying* Yahoo Mail customer for over 15 years - with patience wearing thin.
I have 30k unread emails and I am trying to delete them all. I need help or I will cancel my account!
hi why cant I delete full chat with one click instead I need to do many times to delete messege wish u fix it it say it error 400
What happened? I can no longer delete multiple e-mails from the mail search! It's really a huge waste of time to have to click every one from my inbox.
AS YAHOO IS INCOMPETENT IN SO MANY AREAS, YES I KNOW I AM SHOUTING, TIME TO DO WHAT MY KIDS HAVE SAID FOR YEARS AND SWITCH TO GOOGLE. THEY WERE RIGHT I WAS WRONG TO BE LOYAL TO SUCH INCOMPETENTS. DESPITE SO MANY REQUESTS YOU MORON S JUST IGNORE US.
I HAVE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF EMAILS BECAUSE YOU STUPIDLY DON'T GIVE ONE AN OPTION TO JUST DELETE FROM POINT A TO B. STUPID STUPID STUPID AND YES I KNOW I AM SHOUTING. HATE IT WHEN INCOMPETENT COMPANIES DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS, WITHOUT INPUT FROM THE USERS.
Please also add an over-ride like CTRL to allow deleting without the extra step.
