    I do not believe it's possible but someone will be along shortly to correct me if I'm wrong.

    well you can scroll to each message and delete them, or if your model has the ability to filter messages (I'm only familiar with the Pearl) you can do that: under menu select Search, enter the persons name/email address/phone number (what ever it is you are searching for) or in the message put what ever key words that person has in the body of their message you wish to get rid of.

    when it shows you the results from your search, highlight and delete

    it will not let me highlight... i would have to delete them one-by-one.

    is this the only way? ... please tell me there's another way, please

    when it shows you the sorted results based on your search filter, go to the date and highlight it. Will it offer you "Delete Prior" ?

    If you have a message from that person, scroll to it, click in and select search sender. When you get a list of those messages you can use the delete prior option as posted above. You should be able to highlight multiple messages at one time from here. Hold the NUM key while scrolling to select multiple messages, I can do it from that screen fine.

    The Left Shift key -- NUM lock is a secondary feature of that shift key. The "CAP" key is the Right Shift key. Again, CAP lock is a secondary feature of that shift key. You press Alt plus a key to access the secondary feature listed at the top of the key.

    You don't call the P key the "@ key", do you?

    Log into your e-mail settings, then set your filters there. Try that.

    You sure you can just go into your main message que and do a search by sender then just delete?

    Thats very odd?
