Assuming that you downloaded UBUNTU which became a ISO file.  Exactly 
what did you do with the ISO file,  did you try to install it or did you 
first create a disk with an IMAGE on it?

You're supposed to use a CD burner feature that creates a IMAGE CD from 
that ISO.  Examine your CD burner program for that feature.

Anytime you have a bunch of emails you want to get rid of,  highlight 
them all by clicking each one to create a highlighted group of them, 
then do a delete.  There's also a 'Select all' to highlight a group, 
then one click will delete all at one time.
