    Want to delete several messages at once? Here's how:

    For messages in a sequence (an entire block of emails), press the Shift key and click the first and last message. To select random (un-grouped) messages, click in the check-box beside each message. Then either press Delete on your keyboard or click Delete in Mail.

    Deleted messages go to Trash. If you delete a message by mistake, for a little while you'll be able to find it in Trash and move it back to your Inbox or to another folder. Just remember that messages in Trash can be deleted at any time without warning.

    To permanently remove the contents of Trash, click Empty right next to it, on the left side of the page. A window opens up asking "Are you sure...?" Click OK to delete, or Cancel to close the window and not empty the folder.

    After messages are emptied from Trash, they're permanently deleted from the Yahoo! Mail server and can't be recovered.
