Office 365 (Apple Mail) - Delete a Message

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

This document explains how to format a message using Apple Mail. These instructions are for Mac OS 10.9, but are likely to be similar for Mac OS 10.5-8.

To delete a message:

  1. Select the message you want to delete in the message list.
  2. At the top of the message list, click Delete Selected Messages.


    • Note that if you mouse over the message header, you can find the same option.


  3. The message will be moved to the Trash box. It will eventually automatically be erased or you can manually erase it.
