When attempting to mass delete emails from my inbox this message displays "You have moved this message while using another device at the same time, please refresh your screen."
I do not use another device to access my emails, only my laptop
The messages have not been moved
Refreshing the screen does not work as the message still appears when I try to delete other messages
Instead I have to read & delete each message one at a time
This has only recently started happening - about the last week or so
Any help would be much apprevciated
Why do I just get error messages when I try to delete more than one email at a time. This used to work fine until I was upgraded - help!
Yes I have the same problem which has started ever since BT 'upgraded' the UI.
I do download my emails onto my phone. So I turned my phone off completely and now suddenly I can delete multiple emails using the check box and dustbin features I used before. So it seems your email account seems to think you are downloading to a phone or tablet or the like. I don't know if there is a setting on your account that making it think that. I will continue to investigate but I am sorry I can't help further at this time.
Thanks for your replies & investigation work, if you do find a solution please let me know 🙂
In the meantime I'll keep deleting them 1-by-1 zzzzzzzz
Amongst the many other problems with the email webpage UI (User Interface) there also seems to be a problem with deleting emails in bulk.
The following are not suggested as "fixes" but as a "work around" you could try the following:-
Click on the box to the left of the first email you want to delete and assuming you want to delete all the emails that are below that you can either press on your keyboard "shift" key and "PgDn" key repeatedly and it will mark all the other emails with a tick or use the "shift" key and the down arrow. This will also mark all the boxes with a tick or tick the first box you want to delete and holding the shift key move to the last email you want to delete and tick its box and release the shift key. All the emails in between should now be ticked.
If you don't all the emails that have been marked with a tick deleted you need to go down the list and untick the ones you want to keep.
Once you have done that you then click on the "Delete" button in the menu bar and if that doesn't work try and drag and drop them into the trash folder.
I don't know if this is a thing or whether BT have coincidently fixed it, but if you organise your inbox in alphabetical order by clicking the <From> column header, then multi-delete by ticking those emails you don't want and clicking the dustbin icon... IT WORKED without error !
Let me know if this works for you?
