Two choices:
Click on the top of the date/time column in your inbox/myth folder, to 
sort by new date. Click again to sort by oldest first. Then click on the 
  top of the title column to sort alphabetically and remain in 
newest-last order.
Select the first of a thread and click. Shift click on the last item, 
and all between are marked. Press delete.
Entire threads deleted almost instantly.

Second choice:
Use Edit -> select all, and move everything to Trash.
Read posts in the Trash folder. Do not delete anything. selevt and move 
anything you want to keep. When done, Empty the Trash.

second method is great for when you come back from a break and find you 
have over a thousand posts to read.


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
