Deleting entire inbox

Hello,

 

How can I delete my entire inbox at one time? I am only able to highlight and delete approx 100 at a time. I do not use this inbox so there are over 62k emails in it. Doing it 100 at a time will take forever.

 

Thank you.

Re: Deleting entire inbox

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.
