Re: Deleting from Gmail "All Mail" folders

Howdy Al,
 
I don't know if this makes a difference with the newer email clients but, in the past you needed to have Gmail set to, Basic HTML, view and not the, Standard, view for screen reading programs to work correctly.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Folder does not currently exist, I also tried creating it but it is still empty. Maybe it will populate over time and if not, no big deal.

Thanks,
Alan

You first have to fine [Gmail.
Press the right arrow, and then type "A", until you hear "all Mail".

Marie,

Are your directions using the Outlook program in MS 365 or on line with Gmail? I use Outlook on my PC within MS 365 and do not find the all mail folder you mention.

If using Outlook, go into the all mail folder and select as many as possible at a time and just press the delete key. Then go and empty the trach folder. This is the only way I have been able to permanently delete these email copies. HTH Marie

My Mail accounts in Thunderbird have folders entitled "All Mail" in which every email received or sent is copied.  I have over 170 thousand emails in one of these folders.  I have now permanently deleted all of these emails with shift-delete and they do disappear.  However, all of them return when I go back into my email.  How do I permanently get rid of this garbage?
