You may already be familiar with the InboxExtender install as it is one of the examples in the WM6 SDK install. This dll is very handy in that it lets you mark an entire folder as read by adding a "Mark All as Read" menu option.

Unfortunately... there is also a very dangerous menu option that is located just a fraction of an inch away. It is labeled "Delete All" and if you accidentally click it, it will without any warning, delete the entire contents of the current MAPI folder.

I have added some code to this dll that places a safety mechanism around the delete functionality. It will simply ask you for verification of your actions before continuing. A simple fix indeed, but makes the dll actually usable.

I have also modified the dll to "unregister" the previous dll (if you had Q Inbox Extender installed). This should have no effect if you had no previous installation.

Instructions:
1.) Copy SafeInboxExtender.cab to your device
2.) Navigate to the cab on your device and click it
3.) Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the install
4.) SOFT RESET!
5.) The "Delete All" function should now be safe!

Please let me know how it works for you.

this type of menu editing, could you do the same thing to the calendar menu to add an option or edit a current option?

Excellent, just started using this, of course only because it took me almost an hour of searching to find. We really need a thread of site devoted to links to all the various programs that have been developed here on xda-dev.

REQ: anybody thinks it would be a great idea if someone can develop a menu extension just like this for the EXIT or Close of a program - for those many programs that force you to use the X/OK button which is really a pain when trying to use one handed.

Is there anyway to have your messages marked as read via a program execution or maybe a script? Will this program do this?

This is awesome! What a great idea! I've been using it for a few weeks, and definitely saved myself the annoyance of having to restore all of my text messages after accidentally deleting them!
