Customer Question
I want to delete...

I want to delete all my unread Yahoo e-mail (Over 5000) but when I select "Unread" it only selects one day at a time to delete. How do I delete ALL of my unread Yahoo email?

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Yahoo? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

Through Chrome browser on a Mac.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

All I have done is to select "Unread" and it only selects one day;s worth of unread messages at a time. I don't know any other thing to do.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

No. Thank you.
