Re: Too Many Messages



Hi Frank:

    This is easy. Let's say for example I have messages going back 60 day's
and I wanted to delete all from 30 to 60 days. Sort all messages by
date (if not allready). Scroll to your last message(60 day old one) and
highlight it. Then scroll to the 30 day old message. Hold the SHIFT button
down and click the 30 day old message. Those 2 messages and everything
in between should now be highlighted. If there is 1 or more messages
in that group that you don't want to move, hold the CTRL button down and
click those messages. This will unhighlight those individually. Now drag them
to the deleted items folder or hit the delete key.  2 clicks, 1 scroll and 1 drag
action or keypress is usually all it takes to move any amount of messages.
Sure beats deleting them 1 at a time.
Since I like keeping all old amsat messages for reference what I did is I created
a "Deleted Amsat-BB" folder in the Local Folder. I drag all my old Amsat
messages into that folder.

Hope this helps
