    Is it deleting 34 at a time, meaning you delete 34, then have to delete another 34, and so on until everything is deleted, or will it not delete the 35th item?

    If it won't delete the 35th item, try selecting all of the messages you want to delete EXCEPT that 35th item, and see if it will "skip over" that one message.

    It might also help us to know what e-mail software you are using and if you are using POP3 or IMAP for incoming messages.

    Call your ISP. They may have a quick way of soving the problem.

    And the e-mail software would be Outlook Express, Outlook, Thunderbird, Eudora, something else? Version number of the software would help as well.

    As gurutech asked, are you having problems deleting one particular message or are you saying you can only delete 34 messages at a time?
