If your account is hosted then the hosting company could probably tell you which files to delete.
Another idea would be to delete the old account and start a new account with the same details.
I do possess multiple E-mail addresses for specific activities separately. One of my personal Lycos (the then Mailcity) address (created in 1996), where I have many important vendor's address stored and communicated for long, recently flooded with half a million 'SPAM' mails and everyday I receive 1000 odd crap mails from 'adult' sites. The situation is very annoying...
Despite the best of my customization and filtration effort in the C-panel, situation remains the same.
If you have POP access to your account then just set up a Bayesian filter, train it a bit, and forget it. If this is a webmail account then the service vendor may have some options for you.
If you are storing customer data in a free web mail account you are asking for trouble. If it gets hacked or they crash beyond a certain point, etc. you will loose that info because they will do little to nothing about it.
Consider free email accounts something that could be lost tomorrow!
Peace and Blessings
However, I am really surprised to know that free web mail accounts can be lost at times.
By the way, I had a free account with Usa.net before it stopped offering paid service exclusively. I lost the said account in 1999.
Can the scenario be the same for the FREE ACCOUNTS where the accounts remain free?
[no, i never responded to any fishing schemes and can only speculate about how they got my user names, one of them was in Arkansas (i'm in CA) and after being arrested, the perp reported he got peoples' info from Limewire); another was in Arizona and while she was never caught, i discovered her identity with the help of detectives and a warrant has been issued)].
I found ways of using multiple gmail accounts to protect against this scheme. But i generally don't check those accounts so mail has built up. I would like to delete all the mail and can't do it page by page, it would take too long. Deleting and trying to recreate the accounts worries me, i want to keep those email addresses and don't want to risk not being able to get them back.
I was hoping to find a tip or technique for deleting all mail in the inbox rather than just one page at a time. I suppose with 24,000 mails, that might be too heavy for the system.
