I am trying to get my personal g-mail account to work with Windows Live Mail on a Windows 7 laptop, but am having an interesting problem as I work with my g-mail account.
Specifically, in my list of g-mail folders, there is a folder called "all mail".
This appears to be an archive of some sort, that contains every e-mail I have ever received, replies to relevant e-mails, etc., all the way back to about 2009, when I first set up my g-mail account.
There are literally several hundred thousand e-mails in this "all mail" folder.
I really don't need this folder, and I have tried to delete it, but with no luck.
I also have tried going into the folder and deleting messages in groups, but again, no luck.
It seems that G-mail is blocking this action.
Having all of these e-mails in my "all mail" folder is slowing things down unnecessarily, and I'd like to get rid of this extra e-mail baggage.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to accomplish this?
Do I actually have to go into my g-mail account to do this, and if so, what exactly do I do?
