Deleting email on Gmail

I recently learned my Gmail account is full….. “You are almost out of space for your Gmail account. Once you run out of space, you will not be able to send or receive any emails until you delete some items.” If I try to delete all the messages on the Gmail account, will it automatically do the same on Outlook? I have many important messages, and I don’t want to lose them on Outlook. To try and sort through all those on Gmail to delete is a painstakingly slow process. I’d just like to highlight someway and hit “delete all.” (don’t know if it’s feasible).

    No, it will not delete anything you have in Outlook. You can safely delete all messages that have already be loaded into Outlook since what is in Outlook is a copy of the original email from Google.

    It depends on how you use Outlook to connect with GMail and on what you have done in the past with GMail e-mail items after you connected with Outlook. If you use POP, it's probable that deleting them through GMail web mail won't delete them from your Outlook client. They have probably been copied into your Outlook client on the PC that you use. You should copy them to some local folder on your PC to make the e-mails separately available. A POP connection can be defined to leave a copy on the server after downloading to the PC. If that's how POP was set up by you, then your PC would have copies now. If you use IMAP for your connection from Outlook on your PC to your GMail account, then deleting them through GMail web mail will probably cause them to be deleted in Outlook the next time you connect with Outlook. You should copy them with Outlook to a local folder on your PC before deleting them. In other words, we don't know how you have configured anything nor how you have handled your e-mail items. You might have copies in safe places, or you might lose every item you delete. We have no way to be sure what will happen because it's your private account and your private PC. It's up to you to set things up to protect what you want. These are "free" services. If you need more certainty, you might need to set up professional help. Tom
