Remove thousands of messages

I've got 16,000 messages in a directory in my hotmail account.
How can I delete them in one shot?

Greetings allelopath !

To clean a folder radically in Hotmail:

    * Click the checkbox in the column heading, above all the individual messages' checkboxes to select all messages.
    * Browse the folder for messages you want to keep and make sure their checkboxes are not selected.
    * Click Delete.

Hope this helps, war1
Setup Outlook Express:
Outlook Express offers builtin support for Hotmail accounts, so you only have to select HTTP when you are asked to select your email account type and select Hotmail as the HTTP Mail Service Provider.

Download all mail off HM Server, Delete all at once in OE...

I installed Outlook Connector, which gives Outlook access to hotmail accounts
