BB HUB: TheBlackBerryGuy On How To Delete Sent Messages

Russell Shaw was quick to find us in the Nashville City Paper and post a copy of our How To session:

The Nashville (Tenn.) City Paper occasionally runs tips from a syndicated columnist and BlackBerry expert who calls himself BlackBerryGuy. Today's tip is about handling deletion of messages in his Sent folder.

Basically, this is a 13-step process, which makes a good bit of sense.

Follow along with me - and with BlackBerry Guy:

Here's what BlackBerryGuy advises:

  1. Go into your messages
  2. Click the Trackwheel and select Search
  3. Scroll down and change Show from Sent and Received to Sent Only
  4. Scroll down and change Type from All to Email
  5. Click the Trackwheel and select Save
  6. In the Title, give it a name (he suggests "Sent Only")
  7. For a shortcut key, pick a letter
  8. Click the trackwheel and click Save (This will now search and pull up all of your sent items. To delete them all without impacting your desktop, highlight the top most date, click the trackwheel and select Delete Prior.)
  9. Go into messages
  10. Press Alt-A
  11. View the sent only items
  12. Click the trackwheel
  13. Select Delete Prior
That's what BlackBerryGuy suggests. Got another way that works for ya? I'd be interested in learning how you do this.
