Mark people just like you or maybe they think your insight is worthy of who knows what.

Why did you let it get that way in the first place Mark? :-o

Mine is really not that clean either, but they all saved in e-mail inbox.
Ok, I will spend five minutes doing a little clean up.

Along with that, is there, or could there be, a way to retrieve PMs accidentally deleted, or better yet a confirmation pop-up when you click delete? Several times, I have clicked delete when I meant to click reply.

I think the best way to implement Mark's request would be to have a check box next to each message. You go down the list and check the ones you want to delete, then click a master delete button.

It's got that already, hasn't it? Mine certainly does: the wording on the master button is "Delete selected messages".

Duh. You're right. That should help the Kittyman.

I still feel the need for it be a bit more difficult to accidentally delete.

LOL...
Do you know how long it would take to click on hundreds upon hundreds of messages to mark them for deletion?
I was just looking for a way to delete everything beyond a certain cut off date.

I dunno, I guess my inbox is just much more robust that some.

My oldest is from Fivestar Crashtest in mid 2007.

Heck, maybe I should keep them for posterity.


At the bottom of the inbox is a nice "button" named select all.
