Default deleting unread messages

Is it possble to delete all unread messages in microsoft outlook express. I have about 3000 unread messages but would like to keep all the read ones. Is there a simple way that I can just tell it to delete all unread messages. Thanks

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Send a message via AIM to Win2kpatcher

That would select all the messages though not just unread ones..hmmm not sure if you can do this. What I would do is arrange the messages by "unread" then simply do a batch select and delete them.
