How to delete all Emails from Yahoo Inbox - at once?

Asked by trustdoc7 (3points) July 31st, 2009

Unless I’ve missed something you can only delete a max of 200 messages at a time… At the moment that means I would have to do it over 500 times!!!!
Hope someone can help with this.

Yikes. I would just sign up for a new one and start fresh. And next time don’t allow so much time to pass in between e-amil checks.

If Yahoo had a way of deleting ALL inbox emails, this would never have happened..
But of course you can’t tell/help yahoo with anything. Reminds me of Ebay and paypal.

You could use WWW::Mechanize to do it. It is a PERL module. But that is like fishing with an atomic bomb.

Forget about that one and get a Gmail account.

Instead of using the check box method, try clicking on “More Actions” then “Select All Messages” and then try deleting them. What happens? The most I’ve ever had in my inbox is about 1200 (thanks to mod e-mails) so I’ve never actually tried this method.
