Inbox Folder Delete

Hi

 

In webmail, why is the "inbox" the only foler that doesnt allow full folder content delete.   Only way I can see to delete the content is to mark each mail (you can use the multi-select to get one page's worth),  delete those and then keep going page by page.

 

I know with a single button (same as Trash or Junk) that there is a risk of people accidentally deleting their inbox content, but sure a pop up box (there is alrwady one for the other folders) or even two pop up's ("Are you REALLY SURE you want to delete the mails") would be a fix.  If someone says yes twice to the warning then let's put it down to Darwinian Evolution.

 

Thanks.  SM

Why cant you select multiple eamils in the inbox widodw and then "report spam".  Why should we have to open each mail individually (I dont wven want to open spam mail) and then slect the "report spam" button.

 

Thanks.  SM

Hey Simon1969 - thanks for your feedback. It's not a function that we support at present. I'll pass it on though.

Re: Inbox Folder Delete

You can delete all your emails by going to:

 

www.mail2web.com

 

login using your Optus email address and password. Select 'delete all' and whallah!

 

ps mail2web allows anybody to login and check their emails outside individual service providers...pretty smart!?
