    In OE 6.0 I would like to remove messages from my deleted file by sender address in one fell swoop rather than clicking one each one and holding down the shift key. Is there a way of doing this. When I have used the block sender function, it not only deletes the message currently received but indicates that it has deleted all messages from that sender. Is this a key to the solution---or if not, what is? Thanks much.

    To delete multiple messages from a sender you first need to click on the column to sort by the sender(From heading). Then select the first and the last email while holding down the Shift key and then delete the emails. Note that if you are deleting emails from the Deleted Items folder you do not need to hold down Shift when selecting Delete. If you hold down Shift when choosing delete it permanently deletes the email from other folders like the Inbox or Sent but for the Deleted Items folder its kind of redundant. And as I mention above Shift can also be used to select multiple messages as can the CTRL key to pick and choose emails by holding CTRL down and clicking on each message.
