How can I delete all my Rogers emails at one time?

This may be the wrong board for my question but there wasn't one for Rogers email questions. I have been using my Rogers email solely to transfer a few emails to my regular email account.  A lot of junk comes through too.  I never go into the Rogers email.  I have been doing this for years.  I once tried to remove as much of the emails as I could and it was a tedious page-by-page process.  I'm afraid that I will soon use up my allotted space and I want to empty out my inbox. Does anyone know a way to do this quickly?

@ladyhawke888 : I assume you're talking about deleting e-mails in Rogers/Yahoo Webmail. Click on a folder, then near the top-left of the screen there is a small box with a down arrow beside it. Click the down arrow and select "all", then delete.  Pretty simple.

 

Are you really close to 1 TB of e-mails?  If you click on "Settings" (the gear near the top right), then more settings near the bottom, you'll then see what % of the 1TB you've used up at the bottom left of that screen.

Thanks very much 57, I'll give it a go.

Actually 57, You were right to question if I was close to the 1T limit.  I was only at 14%.  That's hard to believe after years of accumulating emails.
I tried your solution and it partially worked.  It didn't delete all the emails at one time but it deleted 100 instead of the 40 that I would otherwise have done.  It's still too slow though.

Re: How can I delete all my Rogers emails at one time?

It defaults to 100. If you scroll down the e-mails in the folder before clicking delete, it'll go beyond 100, to 200, eventually to all of your e-mails, however:

 

1. One should never have hundreds of e-mails in a single folder. It makes things difficult to find and may even cause issues with limits of the number of e-mails in a single folder.

 

2. If you decide you wish to still delete many e-mails, I'd suggest you do a few hundred at a time as trying to do everything at once could also cause issues.
