Assuming in the absence of any evidence that you're using SeaMonkey,
click the first message to select it, hold down the SHIFT key and click
the last message. Then hit the Del key. Do exactly as you would to
delete files in Windows Explorer.
That selects all lines between the two clicks. Useful for deleting a
large number of contiguous lines.
CTRL-click works, too, to select noncontiguous files.
Actually, with my SeaMonkey v.1.1.16 (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel
Mac OS X...) I find that the command for selecting non-contiguous lines
is Command-Click, not Control-Click.
