Howdy,

When I go to the deleted items section of Outlook Express I have 85 messages listed.

How can I delete all the messages at once ?

As of now I am highlighting the last message and clicking delete. I than get a pop up screen asking if I am sure I want to delete the message. I click yes and the message will be deleted and it moves on to the next message.

I would think there is a way (I just can't find it) to get rid of them all at once instead of going through the above process 85 times.

Could someone please advise me ?

Thanks for your time,

Dennis :thumbsup:

Open OE, then your deleted items folder.
At the top of the page, click on EDIT.
From the menu that opens, choose 'Empty Deleted Items Folder'.
Confirm that you want to delete.
They'll go bye-bye.

note: You don't even have to open the deleted folder. Deletion can be done while you are looking at the inbox or any other folder. Just follow the procedure above.

Thanks for the response Queen-Evie !

I followed you advice and those pesky E-mails are now history. :flowers:

A last question. If I wanted to save a few of the emails, what steps would I take to protect them from being deleted with the rest ?

Move them elesewhere ?





Thanks Again,

Dennis :thumbsup:

Create a folder for messages you want to save and move them to that folder.

If you need to know how to create a folder, post back here.
