If you set up Outlook as IMAP, you may not want to delete as that will also delete emails in Outlook.

For Hotmail (now web Outlook) you can select everything in one screen and delete. Normally within a few screens, I have deleted what I want.

You can also right click on Inbox (or Deleted Items) and select "Empty folder"  Inbox emails will go to Deleted Items.

web Outlook seems to be the solution.

Please give me more information about using it.

I used www.hotmail.com

I saw only 96 emails. I've reason to think that there may be several thousand.

I saw nothing to click for View All, nor to select all, nor delete button to click.

Your thoughts please?

I followed John's most recent advice. I found only 96 emails.

This result confirms that I am mistaken in believing that there are thousands awaiting deletions.

Thus my question is effectively answered by John with input from David.

Thank you both.
