Re: Deleting from Gmail "All Mail" folders

Gene
 

Does Outlook have a folder of its own where it displays all mail? I wonder if you are actually in some sort of such mailbox aggregator that, confusingly, has the same name as the GMail all mail folder.

I wonder if Outlook doesn't display the All Mail folder from GMail, at least not with that name because it would result in two folders with the same name. I have no idea, but its interesting to speculate about.

Gene,

It is the all mail folder in the Gmail account. Agreed, my thinking is only Gmail history should be there. No big deal, just wondering.

I don't know. If it is the all mail folder that is in your GMail account, mail from other accounts shouldn't be there.

Interesting, I looked in the all mail folder and it includes emails way back to 2002 way before I had a Gmail account. It has messages from an old road runner account. How in the world id all this info get in there?

I don't have any opinion. I don't empty them. If you run out of room in your GMail storage, messages will automatically be deleted to make way for new ones. At least I believe that is what I read. If you have concerns about having messages sitting there for years where someone such as a hacker might see them, you may want to remove them but I'm not concerned about that possibility. My mail is almost all e-mail list mail. I doubt hackers are interested in going through messages anyway. They try to hack accounts to send spam messages to people using your account such as to people in your addressbook, but they could do that anyway even if you remove messages, if you have an online addressbook.

I'm not sure that deleting messages from your e-mail program would delete them from the actual site. Others may know about that.

The all mail folder has now populated. So now I have an inbox. All mail, and an important folder. Am I supposed to empty these periodically? Typically once I handle email in my inbox, it is either saved to a folder for future use or deleted.

Are you talking about two different things? I believe the original question is for using an e-mail program. You appear to be commenting on using the web site itself. And for quite some time, it has not been necessary to use simple HTML on the web site. I haven't used the web site much so I'm not saying it isn't easier to use the simple HTML choice on the web site but I see no reason that it should matter when using an actual e-mail program.

I don't know if this makes a difference with the newer email clients but, in

Standard, view for screen reading programs to work correctly.

I'm not sure about the All Mail folder but, the Trash folder flushes itself once a month.  I haven't been able to determine what day of the month but, it definitly empties it once a month.  When I checked my All Mail folder earlier today, oddly enough it had the same amount of emails as the Trash folder.  When I deleted the contents of the All Mail folder it didn't do anything to the count of emails in the Trash folder.  This is the first time I've ever checked the All Mail folder and I don't know how many years I've had this Gmail account but, at least 8 for this particular account.  The amount of emails in each of the All Mail & Trash folders was 149, so I emttied both folders and out of curiosity I'm going to take a peek at them more often than I normally would.  I do not have an Important folder.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

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

Subject: [TechTalk] Deleting from GMail "All Mail" folders

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?

Once you open the program, use f6 to move to the folders' tree view and

more to move to the messages list. You could use f6 to get to the
folders'

list and then tab to get to the message list but when you are opening the

way

to move from the folders treeview to the message list.


the program is very similar in a lot of ways. Ask if you have further

I don't know. If it is the all mail folder that is in your GMail account, mail from other accounts shouldn't be there.

I don't have any opinion. I don't empty them. If you run out of room in your GMail storage, messages will automatically be deleted to make way for new ones. At least I believe that is what I read. If you have concerns about having messages sitting there for years where someone such as a hacker might see them, you may want to remove them but I'm not concerned about that possibility. My mail is almost all e-mail list mail. I doubt hackers are interested in going through messages anyway. They try to hack accounts to send spam messages to people using your account such as to people in your addressbook, but they could do that anyway even if you remove messages, if you have an online addressbook.

I'm not sure that deleting messages from your e-mail program would delete them from the actual site. Others may know about that.

Are you talking about two different things? I believe the original question is for using an e-mail program. You appear to be commenting on using the web site itself. And for quite some time, it has not been necessary to use simple HTML on the web site. I haven't used the web site much so I'm not saying it isn't easier to use the simple HTML choice on the web site but I see no reason that it should matter when using an actual e-mail program.

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.

Re: Deleting from Gmail "All Mail" folders

I meant IMAP. I got the acronym confused. MSAPI is something like Microsoft application program interface. I almost never think about that term so if I got it a little wrong, I expect someone will correct me.

Who knows why I used the wrong gterm?

It is strange since the all mail folder does appear in WLM. It is just one of those stupid problems that seem to make no sense.

My understanding from Al is he's following steps to find the All Email folder and I believe that's only found on the Gmail website. If he's talking about the email client then it wouldn't matter and I misunderstood him.
Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Are you talking about two different things? I believe the original question
is for using an e-mail program. You appear to be commenting on using the
web site itself. And for quite some time, it has not been necessary to use
simple HTML on the web site. I haven't used the web site much so I'm not
saying it isn't easier to use the simple HTML choice on the web site but I
see no reason that it should matter when using an actual e-mail program.

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.

Alan

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?
