Close windows live, go online to your account and delete old emails.

Let them download. It won't take long as only minimal information such as the sender, subject, and date/time are downloaded. Once you choose to read a message, the rest of the message body is then fetched by your e-mail client. You are using the IMAP method of reading email.

How far will it go though its already gone back to jan 2014 5000 messages later driving me insane

It will get all the 'headers', none of the content unless or until you open each one.

Go to the website for your ISP, find the link for email (webmail) and delete unwanted messages from there. And set your lapthop email settings to remove messages from server when you delete them

Are you with Xtra? not the first case of this if you are
I know someone in the last three days, have deleted emails from 2011 returning to their in box
And "yes" its stuffed the whole account up

You chose to "keep a copy on server" or use IMAP which means the same thing.
So, they are downloading off your email providers server again.
Delete them from the server, not your own PC.
