How to delete 6,700 old emails – to speed up my computer and XP.?

I can access recent emails, through my email front page, but I think it would be better to go back years and delete large numbers of old ones.
Please help if you can – am being driven mad by extreme slowness of operation, erratic performance, etc.

    your e-mails will not affect the speed of your computer, check your task manger for how many processes are running more than 40 will slow your computer more than 70 will make the swap file active and it will crawl, advice on unnecessary processes is easily available on the internet,most of the services XP installs are unnecessary on a standalone computer, some like remote desktop assistance are lethal on an open network like the internet

    Well if your using Outlook Express on your own computer from your ISP they wont make any difference to the speed of it. They are just data stored on the disc.

    If you mean Yahoo then your emails are stored on the Yahoo server not your computer.

    If it’s Outlook Express and you want to delete the lot, then just highlight any one and Ctrl+A and then press Delete and it will remove the lot in one go.

    If it’s Yahoo then you can only do one complete page at a time. Click on Check All and the Delete.

    In Yahoo Mail Options you can put it to a maximum of 200 emails to each page.

    Most computers actually run slow because of a hidden part of your system, which is constantly being used by Windows. This part of your PC is called the “registry” and is the central database for Windows, which stores everything from your latest emails to your desktop wallpaper. It’s one of the most important parts of Windows and can easily make your PC run slow.The more corrupt registry files your computer has, the more it struggles to read them.The files which makes it run slower and slower. To fix this, you simply need to use a registry cleaner . These are small software tools which actually work by scanning through the registry and fixing any bad files that are in there. This then allows Windows to read as many files as it wants, when it wants to.

    Number of emails have very little to do with Computer speed– and One way to speed up your system is to select a good PC optimizer and System cleaner such as Reginout from Intel Software Directory
