    I got thousands of unread junk mails among my messages . How does one
    delete them without selecting them? Is there a short cut?
    Thanks for any help.

    First, turn off the preview pane by clicking "view", then "layout", then
    uncheck the "show preview pane" option, and click "apply". This will prevent
    messages from opening automatically when you click on them in the message
    list, thus making it safer to select them. Now, in order to select a range
    of messages at once, select the first message by clicking on it once to
    highlight it, then while holding down the shift key, click once on the
    *last* message in the range. This should cause the entire range of messages
    between your two selections to be highlighted. Now, simply press the delete
    key, to send the entire selected range of messages to the deleted items bin.
    If you want to select several messages at once, but they are not in a
    continuous range, simply use the CTRL key instead, and click once on each
    message in turn you wish to select, and each will highlight. Then press the
    delete key. If you wish to quickly empty the contents of the deleted items
    bin, just right-click on it, and select "empty deleted items folder", and
    now they are gone. Lastly, go back to "view" then "layout" and re-enable the
    preview pane if you wish. If you leave it disabled, it will require a double
    click on a message in the list to open it for viewing.

    Then get mailwasher
    It gets the emails from your server and you can bounce them or delete and
    only download what you want.
