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.
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...
Glad I'm not the only one with so many emails. Over 35000 emails on my account which I've had since 1998. Reluctant to delete account but I really can't be bothered checking emails anymore when that number of emails greets me every time I log-in!
AGREE! I have over 30,000 emails. I don't have hours and hours of time to delete emails 50 at a time. Please create some delete parameters SOON to delete by date received, sender, etc.

** Dear Yahoo Mail Product Managers - * Please* comment on this item **
This has been "Gathering Feedback" for about 18 months now.
My Inbox has over 50,000 messages in it. I understand from Support that my whole mailbox has nearly 1,000,000 messages.
This must all be taking quite a bit of storage space! Repeat this over millions of Y Mail users and you have many Terabytes of unnecessary storage being used, with corresponding costs in server hardware, maintenance, electricity, air conditioning etc.
I'm keen to do a cleanup, and this would have been easy to do in the 'old days'. What I need is a "Select ALL" function (as exists in GMail and used to be present in Yahoo Mail). I say "Select All" because it may be a question of moving some blocks of emails from the Inbox rather than deleting them.
If the issue is one of protecting users against malicious hackers doing a bulk delete, then you could at least all a bulk "Select and move" function (allowing a move to a folder other than Trash) - this would at least allow the Inbox to be cleared.
It sad to say but I'm actually relieved to know my mailbox isn't the only ridiculously full one. I guess misery really does love company. Yahoo really needs to fix this!
I agree! ! Seriously thinking of closing my yahoo acct: -/
I will go to another email address other than yahoo if you don't fix this
go back to the old lay out format this new one sucks!!! I cannot delete my mail like I use to
JUST TELL ME HOW TO DELETE 6-7 THOUSAND INBOX, EMAILS AT ONCE. THATS ALL
Another way Yahoo continues to ***** up a wet dream. Why are the simplest things so hard to do?
same with the SWEEP function that other email providers have. its so rediculous
I couldn't agree more! I have missed important emails because I can't find them through this mess! Fix it! I have far better things to do with my time than to sit here all day deleting over 93,000 emails from one folder alone, let alone over 8,000 in my main folder! Come on Yahoo!!!
I just found out I can only delete empty folders. LAME!
I used to be able to see 50-100 (or was it 200) messages where I could click Select All and delete. I have 20K emails in a folder. I want to delete everything older than a month, but there's no easy way to do this.
My work around will be to delete the folder itself and lose the last month. It'd be much faster than trying to delete by scrolling. That's a horrible user interface method. If I want to select all to do something with them, it doesn't work for large numbers. Why was this changed? The old method worked fine and was usable.
Yahoo Mail is obviously run by a bunch of second graders that CONSTANTLY feel they must change the email format << for the worst >> every frigging 6 to 8 months without notice. I've about had it spending time deciphering their stupid email puzzles and for the first time since the inception of the email, I am thinking of ditching this 2nd rate service for something actual adults can use.

I think the issue here is not one of being able to DELETE all messages in a folder - you may not want to delete all of them, or you may wish to actually MOVE them to another folder.
The requirement is, I think, to be able to SELECT all messages in a folder (which would then allow individual messages to be de-selected required). The DELETE or MOVE operation would then be initiated.
This function is present in G M ail, and it used to be present in Yahoo Mail - I think it was removed as part of the changes in October 2013. Thankfully, many of those changes have been reversed (e.g. tabs and permanent folder view have been reinstated), but the true folder SELECT ALL messages function remains unavailable.
The status of this issue in UserVoice has been "Gathering Feedback" for over a year now - with, I believe, absolutely no comment from Yahoo.
Please, Yahoo Mail product team, provide some information about this issue. It would be interesting to know why this useful function (which is standard in other webmail systems and email client programs) was removed - and what the current thinking is regarding reinstatement.
This would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
PS All these messages must be taking up disc space in your servers, requiring more hardware, air conditioning, electricity etc. If for no other reason than cost saving, please bring back the SELECT ALL messages function - and *please* provide an update. Thank you.
Or you can put "Empty folder" in it's the localized menu (right click on teh folder name) - that would work too.
If you are truely gathering feedback, I suggest adding a little trash can icon by each folder's name. - the same icon that you have for our trash and spam folders. that would be slick. (but you'll have to make that folder column adjustable first)
TOTALLY AGREE, SO FRUSTRATING T HAVE 3000 MAILS IN YOUR INBOX AND TO CARRY THEM OVER TO YOUR MOBILE D, W/O BEING ABLE TO DELETE ALL,, GET WITH IT Y WHO IS OVER THERE MAKING THESE DESICIONS,,,
Agree. I would like to be able to select all on multiple pages, be able to sort by sender (in new mail format - it is available in old format). Very antiquated format. Very frustrating.
Very frustrating that I cannot see how to have my solders delete all or 50 emails with one button
