Deleting large emails in Gmail: a step-by-step guide – Times of India

Google Offers users a limited 15 GB of free cloud storage. This free data will count against almost anything including emails, attachments, photos, documents and now even a WhatsApp backup will count against it.
Once the 15GB data quota is over, GmailStops receiving mail and messages. And this is where memory cleanup becomes important for users.
Now, most of the data when it comes to emails is consumed by attachments, and you can clear most of them at once and free up important space quickly.
Here's how you can find and delete the largest emails in Gmail.
Find and identify large emails
Look for a large email first
In the Gmail search bar, type size: 5 MB (or whatever size you want) and press Enter. This displays letters that are equal to or greater than the specified size.
Sort the letters by size:
Click on the ‘Sort by' option (usually the down arrow) to the right of the search bar.
Select “Size” to sort emails by size, with the largest displayed first.
Delete large emails
Choose an email:
Click the check box next to the email you want to delete. Use the “Select All” option at the top to select all emails on the current page.
Delete email
Once selected, click the Delete button (trash can icon) to delete the selected email.
Additional tips
Emptying the trash:
After deleting an email, make sure you also empty the Trash to free up space forever.
Use advanced search:
Refine your search using Gmail's advanced search operators. For example, you can combine operators such as greater than: 5 MB with other criteria.
Example: Larger: 5 MB Label: Inbox is: Unread
Increasing the size threshold:
Adjust the size threshold in your search to include larger or smaller letters depending on your needs.
Remember that deleting emails will permanently delete them from your Gmail account, so make sure you want to delete them before proceeding. Additionally, Gmail's memory is shared with other Google services, so freeing up space in Gmail also affects other Google services that use the same memory.
