How can I Bulk delete emails for example from one particular email address ?? ie instead of clicking delete constantly just to free up space in my folders, if I search an email address and find in excess of a few hundred from that one email address, how do I click SELECT ALL THEN DELETE ??

Update on saving old emails. Drew knows how I sent emails from OX... to AOL and then from AOL, saved on my desktop. Well as much as I don't like the new round cube, it did (so-it-seems) structure a means to forward a page full of emails to AOL and then go into AOL, save that one email which contained the entire page of email files, to my desktop (or a cloud). Organizing these by month , quarters or years is recommended. Then (most importantly) go into all the other applications (OX, Iphone, Outlook, etc.) and delete all those old emails and then empty them from the trash can.

I complained (as usual) yesterday, that after performing this process, it only used up more of my roundcube space, putting it into a dangerage usage. Well that was because my AOL files are also arriving within my homestead account(s) and compounding the problem (constipation) until deleting them as stated above. The important foot note is to NOT forward more emails to AOL than space you have, without toggling over to remove enough to maintain space.

I am not happy with all the problems as I perfect (strive to) my business but also enjoy contributing. Good luck to everyone! In the mean while, I offer this "word to wise"... Apple does not release applications until they have filtered them as flawlessly as possible. Intuit uses its clients to do all the bug fixing by allowing their clients to take on the suffering. I feel that Homestead should stop following Intuit and follow Apple. Any new angle should have issues covered beforehand. Saving old emails and this storage problem is obviously every user's problem, as supported by the numerous blogging. A solution would be in place before anything.

If you click the first email in a group and then hold the shift key down and click the last, it will select all the messages in between and you may delete them.

Space is not a bug. The amount of space available is something this is set. We will soon be allowing for more options, but I do not have the details yet. If you are not a fan of Roundcube, that is ok, there are tons of programs out there, like Outlook that you can use. The webmail interface is designed to be simple and let you access email easily from any browser anywhere you are. If you need more features, then maybe a client program is a better idea for you and your business.

Hi Drew, Are we/I in Shared, VPS or Dedicated Hosting ?
Also, I had complications searching in roundcube. I want to first locate and DELETE all known trashable emails before SAVING them via my AOL to my Hard drive, if possible. ***There are only a page at a time shown (to be selected) and I wonder if a SEARCH can collect all items into a continuous series of pages or do I need to search on each page.

Homestead works on shared servers.You can set the number or rows per page in the settings.

Sync... Drew, it seems that the time delay in all email processing MIGHT have something to do with the various programs syncing. I wonder if you might share knowlege on what goes on to get mail to and from, with all the various behind the scenes syncing between phones, Chrome OX, Outlook, mini [name?] outlook that is "Mail" app on PC, etc. It seems that once it goes via point A, it is "shotgun" out to any and all applications and devices yet those are not updated all at once. Some take a very long time but seeming (not sure) that it has no order to determine what is really happening. It is a puzzle and frustrating but the time delays of late are incredibly bad. Perhaps it's due to this Shared Hosting during the transition with open OX and roundcube applications? A shot in the dark... Rich

By the way... That huge 2-year problem being on the black list into Metrocast is gone. I "lost my voice" screaming about it, gave up and suffered, not thinking it would ever fix itself. Why?

Depending on how you set up the various devices viewing mail may vary somewhat in when that device sees the message, but there is no syncing between OX and Roundcube. Messages are delivered to our server. OX and RC simply display what is on the server. The refresh between the 2 may be a little off, but should not be different by more than a couple minutes. Client software can sometimes be set to check the server more or less often. If you have an example of a message that was delayed, let us know which one and we should be able to view the source and see where the delay occurred. Just give us the date/time of the message and the sender's email along with the subject line.I can't know when or why Metrocast may have decided to remove us from their block. Unfortunately, that is all their decision and they will not explain to us.
