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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

Same thoughts here from another 20+ yahoo user and paid pro mail services. I am feed up and will cancel pro and yahoo in general. I am looking for another mail service and wish there is some thing better than gmail. I am not a fan of google.

I completely agree! I should not have to delete each one individually!!

I want to have email messages in InBox delete itself after 1 year unless I place it in a folder

After having my Yahoo email for 20+ years, my contacts list is outdated and unwieldy. There has to be a way to SELECT ALL or at least a way to click multiple contacts at once to delete. Anyone have a clue because to click delete, then the popup, then confirm over 1000 times is going to make me lose my mind.

be able to chose how may emails can be erased at once without checking them off one by one. choose 500 at once or 5...
MR HERBERT commented
I have over 63,000 old emails that I'd like to get rid of, and start anew, but checking off one at a time will take forever. Idk if you can do this by PC or not, but you can't by cell.
Ron Spohn commented
I have over 50,000 unread messages and would like to delete them either with a date range or with an "older than this date" option. It's wasting server space and energy and the planet. It would be very green of you to allow us olde tymers to clear out junk.

An option to completely wipe the inbox clear of emails. I wouldn't mind if it sent it all to the trash folder if that was even possible. I find it unnecessary that I have to spend an upwards of 2 hours clearing out tens of thousands of emails 25 - 1000 emails at a time.
Doug Gober commented
Currently, any attempt to delete or archive more than roughly 330-350 emails at once results in an error. That effectively makes the "clean inbox" tool useless for managing large numbers of emails - which should be it's intended purpose --- right??
Sanchita Guha commented
It takes forever to delete unwanted / unread mails page by page. There is no option for deleting at one go. Can you give us an option - like Gmail does - to delete all unread e-mails with one click?
