Is there a way to delete all content in the inbox with one command or am I stuck dealing with each message/entry individually?

Thanks in advance...

Open your messages folder > scroll to the top date bar > Menu > DELETE ALL PRIOR.

How about deleting more than one at a time, but not the whole thing??

scroll to the first message you want deleted > press the SHIFT key while scrolling across all those consecutive messages to delete.

All are highlighted > press the delete key.

I would also recommend for you to read Stinsonddog's tips, for your model. See below in my signature.

Thank you very much, and I will most certainly take your advice!

If you don't want to delete all of the emails but some selectively, you have a few options.

1) Do a search by name or subject and then highlight the date you want to delete, then menu>delete prior. This is what I do weekly.

2) Highlight the dates you want to delete, i.e. say two weeks ago and prior, then menu>delete prior. This would leave leave you with the most recent emails up to 2 weeks for example. But you can choose any date you want to delete prior though.

3) What Jsanders said.

Hope this helps!
