I currently have to delete 2,000 emails from my inbox - and I keep up on it pretty well, on a daily basis for a lot of it, and weekly-monthly on the rest, and over 1500 in my trash folder, which I cleared/deleted this week.
I'll check Google, though, and also alert Ds to check his. He uses Google files to save emails with photos, in some cases, and all of the family recipes, and a few others, that I've sent him over time.
Thanks for letting us know, and good work with yours. It's a pain when there are things that you want to keep, like photos.
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
