In O/X how do you delete 'deleted' emails,i.e emails that are in the deleted box other than by deleting one by one. Just trying to confirm that I an brain dead! Thanks every one. Don't get killed in the rush!!

you need to check the box 'empty messages from deleted items folder on exit'

OE\tools\options\maintanance.(winME)

Or right click on the 'Deleted Items'folder.

Or click on the first message, hold down the shift key and click on the last message, right click and choose delete. Or while in the deleted items folder hold down the Ctrl and A keys and click the delete icon on the toolbar.

To be on the safe side, I wouldn't empty the folder "on exit" as crx16 advised, unless you were really sure you wanted all deleted without checking first.

i only gave that option,as i myself didnt see an easier way,beeuum has pointed out a simpler way,and MAJ has pointed out the obvious danger.im changing my set up.

maybe you should too.once there gone,there gone.

Sorry crx16, it was only as a precaution that I mentioned it, sometimes if one has message rules set up to send to the deleted items folder, a "good" email can get caught in the net and deleted permanently by accident, or if the old finger slips and one is inadvertently sent to the deleted items folder, it can be deleted permanently. But if you're sure of all your deleted emails, that is as good a way as any, and the quickest.
