    The ability to select all messages in a given folder (not only the ones that are in view) is being worked on. As soon as we have an update on this, I’ll share with the users in this forum.

    When admin says: "The ability to select all messages in a given folder (not only the ones that are in view) is being worked on"

    I think this is the OPPOSITE of what we are asking for. I don't want 'Select All" to mean ALL THE MESSAGES that I've kept in my Inbox from the dawn of email.

    The option to select all my past and present messages at once seems completely unnecessary. I want the 'select all' function to work as it used to: for selecting all the messages in view per page, per date, per window, whatever. If you don't want to reinstate pages, that's fine, but there have to be some logical breaks built into the list of messages to make managing the Inbox more efficient. Now that the Inbox is one giant scrollable window, I have to individually select each message that I want to delete or move or junk, and that takes entirely too much time.
