The only way I've done it is to click the first message of the
thread, expand the thread if not already expanded, and click
with the shift key held down, the last message. Now you can
delete all "selected" messages.
For related, but not threaded messages, I use the filter box
to display all messages by sender or subject. Then I can
select all under the edit menu and hit delete.
