How to Empty a cPanel Inbox Quickly – Chron

Managing your business’s website is often a time-consuming job, but the cPanel Web interface automates many aspects of the process. When your business receives many emails per day, they add up in your cPanel inbox quickly if you forget to delete them. If you want to erase everything in your inbox, you don’t need to drag each email to the Trash folder. Each of cPanel’s email clients — Horde, Roundcube and SquirrelMail — offers a way to quickly empty your inbox.
Open an Internet browser and type "" in the address bar. Replace "" with your website's domain. Press "Enter."
Scroll down and click "Webmail" in the Email section. Click "Horde" and log in to your Horde account.
Click "Mail" and "Folders" at the top of the screen.
Click the box next to Inbox. Click the drop-down menu and select "Empty." Click "Empty Selected Folders" to confirm.
Open your Internet browser and go to the cPanel interface for your website.
Click "Webmail" under Email, and then click "SquirrelMail." Log in to your SquirrelMail account.
Click "Show All" at the bottom of the page to see all the emails in your inbox. If you have many emails, this process may take a few minutes. Alternatively, click "Options" and "Display Preferences" to choose how many emails to show on one page.
Click "Select All" at the bottom of the page. Click "Delete." If necessary, go to the next page and repeat the process until you have deleted all emails.
Click "Purge" next to Trash to delete the emails permanently.
Open a Web browser and navigate to your website's cPanel interface.
