I've got over 10000 something e-mails in my sent and some other inboxes which need to be deleted and removed. However, everytime I try and go in and delete them all I can't. I just get an error. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

Because this is not feasible to do, I decided to remove and recreate the inbox file instead.
