cleaning spam emails

Hi for spam emails stored on plus.net server in Squirrel mail, it is extremely tedious to select one page of about 15 emails at a time and delete them, as the server objects to deleting hundreds of spam emails at once.
It would be MUCH simpler and very much quicker to have a purge and delete all Spam messages button! PLEASE! Smiley

Re: cleaning spam emails

welcome to the forum
the spam on the PN server are auto cleared after about 20 days.
Not used Squirel for  while, but I think that you have a switch to show all, definitely more than 15

Re: cleaning spam emails

  • Under Options - Display Preferences you can change the number of messages per page - I don't know if there is an upper limit

  • Plusnet Squirrel Mail is stuck somewhere in the mid 1990s - don't expect any innovations!

Re: cleaning spam emails

The Community Support Library article Emptying the IMAP Spam Folder Using SquirrelMail provides more detailed guidance for achieving that objective.
However I'm surprised that IronPort is letting through enough spam emails to cause this problem.
