Trick to bulk delete emails from Gmail inbox
If hundreds or thousands of unread emails are taking up important storage space in your Gmail inbox, know that you are not alone. Keeping a clean inbox is a difficult task. A task that few of us are careful in doing. Let the rest gather.
These aggregated mails not only make it difficult to locate important emails, but they can also make your mobile Gmail app sluggish. The problem stems from the fact that Gmail does not provide a way to mass delete unwanted emails. The maximum limit that you can select at a time is limited to 100 mails. Add to this the fact that you have to manually select and deselect the mail you want to keep and delete.
However, there is a trick to bulk delete emails in your Gmail inbox. The only limitation is that this trick only works on web-based Gmail. Here’s what you need to do…
How to Mass Delete Emails from Your Gmail Inbox?
You’ll need to first take care of the emails you need and don’t want to delete from your inbox. You should either mark them all as unread or move them to a different folder to make sure they don’t get deleted. Next, you have to open your inbox and type is:read command in the search bar and press enter. Gmail will sort and show all emails that you have already read. Now select all messages at once with check box option.
Now when you select the 50 or 100 messages that Google allows, you will see the option to “select all conversations that match this search”, with the message selected in gray.
Here, you should make sure that none of the emails you want to keep is selected. If desired, uncheck them. The interface in your inbox will then return to the selected All Conversations. Now, to delete all the read emails you have selected, click on the Trash icon on the taskbar. When you click on the Trash icon, Gmail will prompt you with a message to fix it for deleting emails in bulk. Once you click OK, all the selected emails will go to the Trash.
It may take some time depending on how many mails you want to delete and which ones to keep, but in return you will get a clean and better Gmail inbox.
