Deleting from Gmail "All Mail" folders


Alan Robbins
 

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?

Yes I am also using Outlook on Office 365. For some odd reason, Outlook does not always download the All Mail folder on a Gmail account. But if you just create the folder manually, then exit and restart Outlook, it should populate the folder. I found this oddity some time ago when I first began using Outlook. It worked for me, so hopefully it will for you.

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

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.

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.

One more idea. I have two Gmail Accounts and in one of them, there is a folder called "important" which sometimes acts as an all mail folder. I know this sounds insane but there it is! No explanation.

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.

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.

On my computer, using windows live mail, under the inbox, there is something called all mail.  Actually, you arrow down once, and it says gmail closed.  You right arrow to open it, then you arrow down once, and it says all mail.  Pam.

I read a bit about the important folder awhile ago, but I don't remember what I read. It wasn't of too much interest to me. Having said that, it is important to know that if you have multiple appearances of messages in Google folders, there is actually only one copy so you don't have to worry about using exxtra space. Its just that GMail displays messages in multiple locations if you want it to.

If you delete a message that appears in multiple locations from one location, I don't know if that deletes it from others or just the code that causes it to appear in that specifric location. Discussing such matters may help people manage their GMail mail better.

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,

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.

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?

If you are using an MSAPI account, not a POP3 account, there will be an all mail folder in your e-mail program if there is one in your GMail folders on the site. Or I should say, there should be one. I don't know why it isn't being seen by Al.

But I'll ask if you, Al, are using POP3 or MSAPI. That may provide the answer.

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.

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

He is using imap protocol with Outlook and I find the all mail folder does not appear in my Outlook running Win 10 20 H2, Jaws 21 and Office 365. 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. On the web, the all mail folder is there and in Outlook there is a folder named "important", which has the same content as the all mail folder.

Gene,

No problem.
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.

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.

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.

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

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.

If you are using an MSAPI account, not a POP3 account, there will be an all mail folder in your e-mail program if there is one in your GMail folders on the site. Or I should say, there should be one. I don't know why it isn't being seen by Al.

But I'll ask if you, Al, are using POP3 or MSAPI. That may provide the answer.
