Konqueror has an imap:/ protocol that you can use to open your mail box and have the email files show up in the file browser. You could then hit ctrl-a to select all of them and then hit delete.
Enter something like "imap://firstname.lastname@example.org" and then enter your password in the pop up dialog.
I once had to delete a folder that I created ( I always use the imap protocol ) before I could subscribe to folders. ( This was years ago. That setup step isn't needed anymore in evolution. ) Using the imap:/ protocol got me out of the catch-22 situation I was in.
