How to Free Up Space in Your Gmail

Today we use our emails almost for everything. The load and weight of some of the files within them can saturate your email very quickly. That is why if you have a Gmail account, we explain step by step how to find the emails that occupy the most space and thus free up as much space as possible.

Instead of deleting the heaviest emails, since many of these can become important and necessary, you can choose to delete the oldest ones. The vast majority of these are probably years old and already irrelevant and unnecessary. To select all emails older than a certain number of years, simply type “older_than:” followed by the number of years you want in the search engine.

We can also classify emails by the type of attachment they have, for example, mp3, jpeg, pdf, etc. Some of the extensions that carry these attachments weigh much more than others, and this is an easy way to eliminate all the ones that we do not want. Like the previous step, you have put in the search engine “Filename:” followed by the type of file you want. This will show you all the emails that have that type of file.

Finally, another alternative can be to send all emails in plain text. Although sometimes the difference is very minimal, emails that are composed in html or another language can take up much more space . Since your Gmail also saves the emails you have sent, you can configure the account to be all in plain text and save space that could accumulate after a while.

With all these tips on how to delete the most occupying emails, you can have all the space you need in your Gmail email.
