    121 pages :w00t: is there not a way to do it in one go?

    Set aside an hour.

    * Click the checkbox in the column heading, above all the individual messages' checkboxes to select all messages.
    * Browse the folder for messages you want to keep and make sure their checkboxes are not selected.
    * Click Delete.

    Wait....still looking

    as far as im aware ,no ! (but im open to suggestions as well) you can delete them all in one go from the trash folder, but you have to move them to the folder 1st , one page at a time !!!

    you could link it to outlook and delete all from there. Would take a few minutes

    i tried this but outlook started syncing all 4000 messages which was taking too long so i cancelled.
    thanks for the suggestion though

    Use windows live mail , it justs dloads the headers then highlight all and hit delete, happy days.
