How to delete old emails / attachments in Hotmail (Full)

Hi there, 


I need help on how to delete emails from 2019 in my hotmail as it says its full. Is there a quicker way in deleting attachments from old emails especially filtering or sorting them in hotmail/outlook portal online?


Or the only way is deleting manually? 


Please note, I do not want to upgrade the storage. 


Please can you advise?

Thank you for that Dr.Khlahn. Just so you aware - I believe by using Thunderbird you will still use data to download full copy? My client's internet is not unlimited and maybe not a good option to do this. So I guess the only way is deleting manually through portal (logged into Hotmail and delete there)?

Thunderbird should not pull the entire file if "leave files on server" is checked and no attempt is made to open the file.  However, I can't guarantee this.  If bandwidth is a problem, you might try:  Borrow the use of a system with unlimited bandwidth, install T-bird on that temporarily, clean up the files and then delete T-bird.
on my webmail you can select several mails, and delete them in 1 go
