Hello Intelligence... 

Is there a GUI tool to delete messages in bulk?
Is there a way to do it with a shell script? 

The problem:
I get waaaaay too many (most times useless) messages...

Can this be done in the GUI?

Can anybody verify (or explain me how to verify) that those are the ones I 
What about the criteria to choose one over another?   :)
