Delete all Gmail messages

Does anyone know how to delete all messages in a folder on Gmail?

When I do the "select all" checkbox it only deletes 50.  I need to delete over 40,000.

How about connecting to your Gmail from Outlook/Windows Mail?  Use IMAP and not POP3 as when you delete the 40k messages, it will do it directly on Gmail.
