`M P b' plus `B DEL'. Or `M P b', `M-&' and `E'. 

,----[ (info "(gnus)Setting Process Marks") ]
| `M P b'
|      Mark all articles in the buffer in the order they appear
|      (`gnus-uu-mark-buffer').

,----[ (info "(gnus)Mail Group Commands") ]
| `B DEL'
|      Delete the mail article.  This is "delete" as in "delete it from
|      your disk forever and ever, never to return again." Use with
|      caution.  (`gnus-summary-delete-article').

,----[ (info "(gnus)Searching for Articles") ]
| `M-&'
|      Perform any operation on all articles that have been marked with
|      the process mark (`gnus-summary-universal-argument').

,----[ (info "(gnus)Setting Marks") ]
| `M e'
| `E'
|      Mark the current article as expirable
|      (`gnus-summary-mark-as-expirable').

Bye, Reiner.
