Thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
To do this you need to do the following steps
Go to Settings by clicking the gear wheel on the top right and under Viewing Email make sure Preview Pane is none and Message List Density is slim.
Then put a check in the box next to the first email.
Then go down the list all the way down to the very last email. You can hold Page down. Note it will take time as when it reaches the bottom it will load the next batch, so just keep hold of page down until your at the last onw.
Then hold SHIFT and click on the box next to the last email
Then click Delete, give it some time and all emails will then be deleted.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen or smiley faces, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
