Emptying Gmail Inbox, without losing any of your mails, will definitely be a welcome move in the New Year. Thanks to Matt Cutts, I got a nice Gmail tip, and emptied my Inbox. Do you want to clean your email inbox?
Here are 10 steps on “How to Empty out Gmail Inbox” and retrieve them as well:
Step 1: Click on “Settings” at the top right of your Gmail.
Step 2: Click on “Labels” tab in the Settings page.
Step 3: Scroll down and go to Labels section, and find “Create a new label” box.
Step 4: Name the label, for example “Inbox2010”, and click the Create button.
Step 5: Now come back to your “Inbox”, and select “All” from the drop down menu in at the top right of Inbox, left to “Archive”.
Step 6. If your inbox is bigger than one screenful, you’ll see a message like “All 50 conversations on this page are selected. Select all 7253 conversations in Inbox.” Click on the second sentence of that message to select everything in your inbox.
Step 7: You will get a pop-up message “The action will affect all 7253 conversations in Inbox. Are you sure you want to continue?” Click “Yes”.
Step 8: Now, look for the label, here label “Inbox2010”, and click the “Move to” button at the center of the conversation area.
Step 9: Now, just click the “Archive” button. Presto! Your inbox is clean and empty.
Step 10: However if you want those older emails, you can have them by clicking “Inbox2010” in the Labels box.
