    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    multiple ways:

    1. quickly select more than one and drag them to the trash
    2. Close the viewer window
    3. right-click on them and choose "move to trash" or "delete" or whatever you want

    Hi,

    Thanks for that...only problem is, i then have to highlight them in order to delete permanently and in so doing they automatically open!...i just want to be able to permanently delete any unwanted/suspect mails safely without the risk of opening a possible virus!

    Guess i must be doing something wrong?

    You can't get any sort of malware installed simply by opening an email. The risks inherent to emails are only made possible through either any attachments or by clicking on any links in an email (and thus, redirected elsewhere). You are fine to select and then delete them.
