Did you try logging into your OWA with some other browser than Internet Explorer or Firefox ?

Opera for instance is not fully supported which can actually be a good thing since you don't get all that fancy Outlook imitation. The interface is much simpler and functionalities are much more available. You should then get a "check all" and be able to delete with increased speed.

Else, best solution would still probably to be able to configure and connect an Outlook client to your OWA...

The best way is to connect Outlook client. –  grigy Dec 17 '09 at 11:50

If using OWA 2007 (I do not have 2003 installed to test) there should just be some checkboxes that you can tick to affect multiple items, then just click delete.

(OWA 2007 on Firefox)

If you are using OWA 2003 or 2007 in Internet Explorer, I believe that you can hold down shift to highlight multiple items in order or control to select multiple items that are separate to each other.

It's OWA 2003 and shift does not work. I need to delte about 8000 messages. –  grigy Oct 7 '09 at 6:45
    
Odd. Ctrl-click and Shift-click work as expected for me using OWA on Exchange 2003 –  AdamV Nov 13 '09 at 1:22
