    I figure this is the easiest place to ask this question.  I have a mailbox that all my spam goes into to filter any false positives out of and each day I clean it up.  But that usually leaves 2k-3k messages left, sometimes more.  Is there a limit to how many messages one can delete at a in Outlook?  Is it limited to RAM or something like that? 
    I'm talking about actually deleting them, not moving them to the trash or deleted items folder.

    ... I've deleted 40,000 at a time... It takes longer, but Outlook does a pretty good job of not coughing too hard when you delete large amounts of data. It's unusable while doing so (which sucks), but it doesn't die or anything.
