In email, go to the date line, hit the menu key and select "Delete All" which will delete everything from that date and earlier.

You can also press the ALT key and scroll to highlight the messages you wish to delete and then hit the delete key.

If the email messages you wish to delete are consecutive, lightly touch the first and last email before bringing your fingers together. They should then highlight and you can hit the menu key to delete them or the red X in the middle of the bottom of the screen.

AFAIK there is no way to delete multiple messages at once that are not side by side.
