You should be able to highlight the first one in the group you want to delete highlight the last one hold down shift and click delete.Sorry if I insult your intelligence.

You're describing the Gmail web interface. If you want to delete multiple messages at once, put a check mark next to each message you want to delete, and the click Delete. Not sure what else you're looking for there.

There's absolutely no reason to go to Trash and click Delete Forever. I've never done that, and I've had a Gmail account for many, many years. You get a huge amount of storage, and it's probably safe to assume that should you actually get even close to that limit, Gmail will probably empty out the old messages for you.

Hi muddy123,
In my Gmail account, along the top line there's an empty tick box just like the tick box (sorry 'check box') alongside each email. If I tick ('check') that box it puts a tick ('check') in all the others below.
Does that work for you?

Hope this helps

Richard.
