To select all emails in a folder:

  • click on folder to see emails
  • press 'Ctrl' + 'A' keys and all emails should get highlighted.

A list of 'conversations will appear in the lower Message Pane

  • click on 'Delete'

To completely remove all hidden marked as deleted emails and release space in the folder:

  • right click on folder and select: 'Compact'

If you would like old emails in a particular folder to be deleted on a regular basis, you can set up a 'retention policy' on a folder. Please note this will delete messages in Thunderbird and originals on remote server.

  • Right click on folder and select 'Properties'
  • select 'Retention Policy' tab
  • uncheck 'Use my account settings'
  • choose from the options listed
  • eg: select : 'Delete messages more than xx days old.'
  • click on 'OK'

Let me know if you have any question on it.
