Mass delete from the Failed Mail folder

I have found some 2000 messages in the Failed Mail folder in my SBS Exchange server. They are mostly To: Undisclosed-Recipient.
It appears that I can only get rid of them one at a time - can't seem to delete a block of them while in the Failed Mail folder.
Does anyone know of a better way to delete 2000 messages? - it would take several hours to do one at a time!

Failed mail folder?  what do you mean the "failed mail folder?"  Do you mean  from the POP3 Connector?  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Networking\POP3\Failed Mail  ?

There should be no reason that you couldn't delete all of those at once if that's what you're referring to.

What error are you getting when you try?
