Deleting large groups of email that are clogging up the server

You need a way to alphabetize the sender in an email, so we can delete junk mail quickly. I can see no way then, to delete emails on the server quickly.
I make a check in a "All" , then it SLOWLY GOES DOWN line by line, as I tap the down arrow. Then it will only delete about 50 at a time. It takes several minutes for every 50 deleted. Then your system spins and spins, before it is ready to do the tedious process again.
No wonder your server is full. This is ridiculous!!!! Hate this!!!!

At the top of the message list click on "Sort by", and then on "From".  That will sort your senders alphabetically.  There are different ways to delete larger numbers of emails.  If you right-click on the folder in the left pane, you will see the option to empty it.  Or, you can click on one, hold down the Shift key and scroll down as far as you like and click on another one to "select" everything in between, then hit the trashcan icon in the toolbar.  Or, you could run a search for a particular sender, and then delete the search results.
