** i'm sorry to be the bearer of bad
tidings (no pun intended) but i just
visited my hotmail acct and cleared
out the junk and it was quick and easy.
in folders other than bulk (ie, spam)
instead of clicking each item, go up
to the top of the page and click the
box that's just above the column of
check-boxes for each item ; this causes
all the check boxes to be checked ;
then press the [delete] button ;
all the items are removed to the
trash folder for deletion later.
in the bulk folder it's even
easier ; there's an [empty folder]
button ; when you click it, it
confirms that you do want to permanently
delete every item in the folder and
then performs a one-step deletion -- ie,
makes 'em all permanently disappear
instead of putting 'em in the trash
folder to be deleted later.
holy macaroni! i never thought i'd
find myself speaking up in defense of
~ those ~ guys!
