Empty 80,000 messages from Sent mailbox on Mail.app
Posted on 2010-09-08
I have 80,000 sent messages in my Mail.app , i need to empty my Sent messages but i am not able to Select All and Delete, the application is simply crashing. I even tried deleting by small bulks but that is taking ages and still not working because sometimes mail is crashing.
What i was able to do was Delete the retrieved messages from /Library/Mail but my problem is that they are still showing inside the application, i cannot preview them since the actual messages have been deleted.
So is there a way to remove all those entries ?
I am using Mac OS X Server 10.4.11
Mail.app version 2.1.3 (753.1)
Thanks in advance
