Deleting all the emails in your Gmail is very straightforward, as the platform makes it extremely easy to mass select emails from the Inbox or a specific folder. When you mass select emails on a page, a text will pop up above the emails saying, “All 50 conversations on this page are selected.”

Next to that message, there should be a link that says, “Select all [number] conversations in Inbox.” That’s the button you need to click if you want to select all emails in a given folder or section of Gmail. From there, you can mass apply an action to those emails, such as Report Spam, Delete, Mark as Read, Snooze, Add to tasks, Move to, Labels, etc.
