To Delete all emails in Gmail in bulk at once is an issue for Gmail users. Today’s we all are using Emails in Gmails app because all android and I phones have this app as a Primary.
It is not possible for us to check all the emails in Gmails. Because it has custom tabs; (Primary, Social & Promotions) it’s simpler to categorize your inbox but on the flip side it makes it incredibly easy to accrue thousands of emails before you clear your inbox.
Sometimes these custom tabs create problems for users like your Gmail account shows clutter problems,emails receiver blocks etc .
So,when Emails is out of control you can easily solve your problem or free up your Gmail account storage.
Easy to follow Steps to Delete all Emails in Gmail in bulk at once
Follow these simple steps
- Log into your Gmail inbox
- Filter Emails
- Type “is:unread” or label:unread to display all unread emails and “is:read” or label:read to display all read emails in the search bar and perform a search.
- This will let you filter your email and only show unread messages or read messages.
- Select all messages (Unread / Read which you want to delete)
- Check a little box under the the search bar to select all displayed messages i.e read messages or unread messages.
- This will select all emails on the current page (100 emails).
- This is because by default Gmail displays 100 messages per page. So in our next step I show you how you select all the unread / Read conversations.
- Select all Conversations
- So to select all messages that match the search criteria of “unread” or “read”click on “Select all conversations that match this search” link.
- This selects all messages of your choice that is read or unread in your inbox.
- Delete all Messages
- Now you’re ready to delete all messages in your Gmail inbox.
- Go a head and click on the delete option which is shaped like trash icon. Gmail will then ask you to confirm your action, just click “OK” and you’re done.
- After confirming deletion, it may take some time for Gmail to trash all the emails. This depends on the number of messages, in my case it took about 2-3 minutes.
- Empty Trash (if you want to delete forever)
- So after you’ve deleted emails from your inbox, Gmail stores them in the trash from where they’re automatically deleted after 30 days.
- You can go a head and empty the trash yourself. To do so, just head over to your trash and click on “Empty Trash now” tab, then confirm deletion.
To delete all read emails from a specific sender, type from:username label:read (where “username” is the sender’s email address) in the search bar and follow the steps outlined above.
