Yahoo is my mail carrier. There is a section titled Smart Views and among other things, there is a  People sub-title and listed in there, I was shocked to find over 2800 copies of e-mails with some repeated numerous times. I made an attempt to delete these by checking All in the selection box assuming that all of the 2900 plus would be affected. When I hit the delete button, I got a box to check that will delete all and there is a progress line to show the progress of the deletion. What happens is after I check the box to go ahead, there is a slight pause and then everything goes back to the list of e-mails.  The actual count stands at 2801 and I got to that by doing 15 at a time and if I try more, it doesn't work and actually reverts back to the 2801. i.e. Let's say I start at 2801 and I check off about 15 boxes and delete, my count goes to 2786 and then I try to do about 30 and hit delete and it doesn't go and the next thing I know, the number is back to 2801. Thanks.
