Yahoo mail - Mass Delete
« on: February 02, 2008, 09:27:09 PM »
I get a lot of stuff in my yahoo mail box. Sometimes I think I will go back and read some of it but then it just keeps piling up. Wouldn't you know it, soon it is really piled up. It shows only 25 posts per page and I usually go from page to page deleting 25 at a time. BUT when you have say 100 pages to delete it sure gets monotonous. You know, for us with short attention spans. So I was wondering if there was a way to wipe out everything in one mass deletion?

You can change how many are displayed on a page.  If you display 100 then you can delete 100.  :)

I thought I had seen that some where before, but the last time I looked for it I couldn't find it.
Where is that option?

You know, Yahoo gives you unlimited email space, so there's really no reason to delete.
I use Yahoo for an email backup, I forward all of my emails there.  I have gigabytes of email on their servers and haven't needed to delete a thing.

If you get near the amount of emails I do, then have fun paging through all of them  :-\

I don't see the need for letting it pile up and just lay there if I am never going to go through and read any of it again. The reason I see to delete is because I hate to just waste anything.... even cyber space I guess.

I guess it's a generational thing...  I hate deleting, when I run out of space I think, "let's add some more storage."  While my dad thinks, "What do we have on here we can delete."  :D

I have so much of cyberspace wasted with junk I'd be surprised I'd ever look at again.  But then I think, in 50 years it might be interesting for me to read all the emails I had when I was 17.  Kind of like people saving their old letters.

No.  I think it's just a world view.  I never throw anything away, including emails.  I work with a guy much younger than me who throws everything away, including emails.
