In your inbox to the right of each PM, as well as the different date headers, there are check boxes. Check the boxes of all the PMs you want deleted, or a complete header or page, and scroll to the bottom where it says "Selected Messages" right below the last PM and right above the page number buttons. Click that for a pull down for several options, including deleting all the PMs you checked.
