Is there a quick way I can delete all my Unread messages in a given folder -- while retaining all the Read messages? (I may have asked this earlier, but buried within a related topic. Sorry to repeat myself.) Thanks.

Take it you are referring to your local mail program:

One way is to hold the Ctrl key down and scroll up/down with arrow keys. Press space bar on each message you want to delete (this should highlight the one being deleted). If you selected wrong, just hit space bar again. Once all have been selected, hit the Delete key to send to your Delete Folder or press Shift and hit Delete key to delete totally. Messages deleted with Sift + Delete keys are not recoverable unless there is a copy still on the server.

View>Current View>tick Hide Read Messages.
Click in the message pane and click Edit>Select all or on the keyboard press Control+A to select all, then click delete.
View>Current View>tick "Show all messages" to unhide the Read messages.
