Deleting Email Files

I'm reaching near the 10GB limit on my inbox.   I also DL it in Outlook.   How do you delete blocks of email from the infinity.com web server?

Thanks,

Re: Deleting Email Files

From what you are describing, are you using POP3 for the account in Outlook?  To delete the entire Inbox-on the server  you can do this--------------

 

From the Inbox page, go to Preferences>>>>>General>>>>>Versions. Full is the default. Click on Lite to set it. It will save automatically. Go back to Email. In the Folders pane to the left, click on "Edit". Then you will see the checkbox to clean out the Inbox folder. Just keep in mind that you can't undo this operation. Once you do it, everything is gone permanently.

 

Or, you can delete blocks of emails by selecting one, then scrolling down as many as you can while holding down the Shift key, and then hit the Delete button in the toolbar.  You can also just check the little box at the top of the email list to select everything on the current page and then do the same thing.
