    You can drag to select multiple messages. Shift+Click selects several messages in a row by moving the highlight up or down the Message Header List. Control+Click selects discontiguous messages from the list, one at a time.

  2. Choose Delete from the Message menu, or click the Delete button in the Toolbar.

    The messages are deleted from the list.

    Note -

    Even if a message has been deleted, you can get it back unless you made your deletions permanent by choosing Destroy Deleted Messages from the Mailbox menu. See the following section.
