Deleteing emails

Likes # 0

I use Mozilla Firefox for my emails. I have four different email addresses which end in @talktalk.net Is there a quick and easy way to delete several emails from both the Inbox and the Trash folder at the same time. I can get many emails which are out of date when I have been away on holiday. Refuse to look at them when I am on holiday. At present, I have to tick each email individually and then clock on Delete. When I tick the small box the email is highlighted in grey. But I can only do one at once. Any advice much appreciated

Woolwell , yes I'd have thought so. Question is why the browser was mentioned in the original post? No bearing on the problem (if there is one) at all.

But you can't individually tick each one without using Ctrl or Shift key. If you tick one and then tick another the first is no longer selected.

This may explain better than I seem to be able to do - it's simple stuff

Sea Urchin Precisely. So the TS has to do it for the four different email clients.

But that is using an e-mail client. Firefox is used therefore webmail (why browser is mentioned) and boxes are also mentioned again webmail.

You don't have to do it for 4 different e-mail clients but do have to do it for 4 different e-mail addresses.

Posted too soon - should have added unless they all come into the same inbox.

I don't see anything about 4 different email clients - in fact we don't yet know which email client is being used (if not webmail). But four talktalk addresses which should presumably all land in the same Inbox.

We're not going to get much further until there is a reply.

I think we should wait until cruiser2 returns and clarifies the situation
