My bin had 16,000 pieces of mail in it before I dumped it.
I think it had to make some room for memory. I too use Netscape,
but mine is an older version 4.79 (I like it). On the left side of
my Messenger window (e-mail) is a vertical list of folders under
At the top is "inbox", then "unsent messages", then "drafts",
then "templates", then "sent" and then "trash", below that is
a host of folders I created to put various messages in.
Double click on the "trash" and all the titles in your trash should
appear. I have 4964 messages in my trash now of which 4206 are
unread. Click on the top message to highlight it while holding down
your shift key. Then while still holding down the shift key click on
a title further down the list. This should highlight everything in
between. Then hit the delete key and they should all vanish.
You could go all the way to the bottom of your list and get rid of every
item in your trash. Be sure you want to get rid of them cause when
they are gone their gone for good.

Now, no one on this list would be the least bit sarcastic, would they ?
