How do i delete all mails in a thread in evolution . It is really a difficult task to delete it one by one.

There seems to be no function to remove the complete thread.

But you can select any message in this thread and press ctrl+h to select the complete thread. Now you can delete all selected messages.

Tip: shift+ctrl+h only selects the subthread of your current message.

Thanks david. It would have been better if there is a single shortcut to delete the entire thread. Will it land on 11.04?.. – aneeshep Nov 5 '10 at 11:03
