How to get a VP to clean out their inbox?

There could always be “server trouble.” Other than that, unless there is a company policy on the issue, it’s going to be hard to get someone to do something they don’t want to do, especially if they happen to be above you in the corporate hierarchy. Perhaps you could offer to archive them instead of deleting them.
