How to Delete Unwanted Email

By Kefa Olang

If you have too many messages in your email box and it is disorganized, you can remove unwanted email messages quickly. It is also important to remove unwanted email messages especially if you have a maximum limit on your email account and currently running out of memory space. Regardless of your email provider, you can delete the messages you are no longer interested in using a few simple steps.

Step 1

Log on to your email account using your current username and password. If you have forgotten your password, click "Forgotten password," or "I can't access my account" depending on the email provider, and follow the instructions to reset your password and logon to your email account.

Step 2

Click the "Inbox" link when you have logged on to your email account. You should see the emails that are in your inbox. If you have any new mail, you should see them on the top and either highlighted, or in bold letters depending on your email provider.

Step 3

Scroll through the inbox and select the email that you want to delete. To select more than one email, place a check on each email that you want to delete. When you finish selecting the emails that you want to remove, click the "Delete" button and confirm that you want to remove the emails. Once the emails are deleted, they are sent to the trash bin. Select the "Trash" bin and click "Empty" or "Delete Forever" to remove the emails permanently.
