How can I mass-delete 2k+ mails on Yahoo Mail?

Okay, a little background. I have a Yahoo.com email account that I only use for online shopping. Subsequently, I only check it every couple of weeks. When I recently checked, I found 2000+ unread emails. I had obviously ticked a box somewhere. Most of the emails are daily offers from just 2 or 3 sites. I have unsubscribed but now need to clean up my mailbox.

Is there a way to mass delete everything? I have tried altering my reading pane but can only get the first 20 or so emails to show at once and deleting 2000+ emails that way would take forever.

Do Yahoo.com email accounts have a mail filter setting? If so, can I set it to shift all the daily emails to one folder (that I can delete later) and will the filters work on any unread emails or just on new ones?

Any info or other suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you
