The quickest way to delete a bunch of emails at once from the web is to go to your inbox/folder, scroll a long way down, and then use the keystroke Ctrl+A to select all visible emails (or the top checkbox in the Yahoo Mail app). The longer you scroll down, the more you can select at once. You can delete a large number of emails at once this way, and I find it works best in groups of 1-2k. Larger groups will take more time to delete. You can still empty the Spam and Trash folders all at once by clicking on the Trashcan icon that appears next to their names when hovering over them with the cursor.
