Windows 7: Live Mail - e-mail accounts

Live Mail - e-mail accounts

I am running a W7 upgrade from Vista Home Premium. This is a large jump since on the computer I just retired I was running Outlook Express 6. I liked the fact that in OE I had one list of folders, and one inbox, deleted and sent folders on the left column. In Live Mail each e-mail account (5) I maintain has a separate set of folders. I see I can set the Quick View to see all the incoming mail in the center window but I find after deleting e-mails I have to go through each account separately to empty the deletes. Is there a way to empty all e-mail accounts with one command?

I have other Live Mail problems I will send as separate threads.

Welcome to the joys of Windows Live Mail.
Pretty sure that the good people that designed Windows Live Mail did not use Outlook Express.
