Default Mass deletion of emails

I am looking for a way to delete multiple emails at once. Rather than going through each email individually, hit delete, confirm and then move to the next email - I like to select multiple lines / emails and delete them.
Is this possible or am I asking for something 'special' here?

TIA,
VK

Highlight the date and select "delete prior"

You can also hold down the alt button i believe and select multiple things just like you would on a PC.

If you do not want to confirm the deletion of each e-mail, you can go into your Messages options and set "Confirm Delete" to NO.

To delete multiple consecutive e-mails, hold the "0" or "CAP" key down and scroll down. Even if you change the "Confirm Delete" to NO, deleting multiple e-mails at once will always ask you to confirm you want to delete all of those messages.

Hope that helps.

Set a password on your device, and then enter a wrong password 10 times in a row... instantly removes your mail from the handheld... ;)

Thanks for all you constructive and humorous help

Pressing the #-key and then highlighting the message works very well. This was what I was looking for.

Hold down the CAP key while scrolling thru the email headings. All will be highlighted, then click "Delete" - voila, you have an en masse deletion!
