As the rest state, please allow a custom number and type of emails to be deleted in batches. e.g. date, unread, read, sent from ...., etc.
You can follow the steps in this post to delete large groups of emails at once in Yahoo Mail:

It's hard to come back to an older email when you literally see over 18k+ mails in it from things you have signed up to in your teens.

There needs to be a button with an option to select all messages in any folder and delete all of them. I have over 166,000 messages in my inbox on one account that I only have the option of selecting 100 at a time to trash. I would then need to select 100 at a time to delete out of the trash. This is one account. My sbcglobal.net account receives thousands of messages that use the same yahoo interface. It would be helpful to just have an option to click a button to delete all of them. Google does this and can delete at least 15,000 messages at once if not more.

Please add a erase all mail; button. I have 116,115 unread emails that I don't want to delete one by one.

****! I wrote in box above! Should have let me post from that box! Remove it! I said I should be able to delete my inbox or any box by clicking just one box to select all. I should not have to check each message to delete!

Allow us to see and operate more than 25 emails at a time, please!

If I have multiple mails that I want to delete I:
- click trash can on top one, it goes away and focus is then left to old 2nd mail
- I keep doing that until I have two unread mail
- when I click on top one it gets deleted but then focus is moved to first read mail after last unread mail
If I'm doing this fast I frequently just click trash can again thinking I'm about to delete last unread mail but really delete 1st read mail -- which I may have wanted to save

I have 152,000 unread emails and will continue to clog the Yahoo server until they all for email deletions more than 50 at a time.

Please make it so we can delete all of our email to trash with one click.
It takes toooo long to delete them screen by screen and it is a waste of storage.
Stacie Bunton commented
Make it so we can delete all email to the trash can at one time
Sherry Leonard commented
How do I delete yahoo emails all at one time?
sharon Johnson commented
No one wants to spend hours deleting emails individually or a small groups of 50.
sharon Johnson commented
Please come up with a way to delete many many emails quickly and easily, Please!

I end up with a huge amount of old emails that don't get cleaned out because it can't be done on a big scale. We should be able to pick a year and delete in the inbox, not just 50 at a time. Sent folder should have a trash can icon to clear out completely in one step. Emails disappear from my inbox and I assume it is because of the accumulated bulk I have.

Agree!! Give an option to Batch delete contacts

I am using the web/browser yahoomail client to access my mail . I read the emails on a day to day basis and if I want to delete the email on day/date basis , I don't have it. There is a consolidated delete button on the top but , if I select that , a lot of emails are getting selected and I have to go through all of them.
Instead, if there is a checkbox next to Today,Yesterday, Lastweek Labels etc then I can select all the emails in this category and delete them all at once. The consolidated delete feature is just time consuming.
Please come up with a feature which selects all today's , yesterday's , this week's emails , so that we could move all the imp mails to another custom folder and delete all the selected mails in these sections.
This would be much convenient than the consolidated checkbox selection at the top of the Inbox, for deleting emails( This avoids the hussle for the user to to go through a lot of emails , it's selecting this way)

DELETING MAILS IS A CUMBERSOME PROCESS. THERE IS URGENT NEED TO HAVE OPTION TO DELETE THEM DAY WISE/ MONTHWISE. THIS IDEA WAS GIVEN EARLIER ALSO AND OPTION WAS GIVEN BUT TAKEN BACK ....PLS LOOK INTO THE SAME.

I'm also a long term Yahoo account-holder. My account now has 16,767 emails. I could get dizzy deleting 50 at a time or suggest the following: Send to all members an email asking if they would like to delete old and very old emails?? Give them a way to date range the emails they'd like to shed, after you tell them the oldest email in their account.
brian barry commented
its pathetic! i cant even delete all easily and import from gmail or other email site where you can easily merge dupe contacts and see them written large, like your whole screen not some little right hand barely able to see mini written version. i have used it for decades as well and you can sort emails anymore by sender either. it sucks. the app is often slow on phone too. i am moving to proton mail, will gradually get rid of this if the new owners (it just got sold w AOL to private equity) dont fix it soon.
Bruce Gronner commented
Maybe everyone would be satisfied if you would allow members to reguest the number of emails to delete. Some want 25 some want all. Just allow the user to select number of deletions.
