Are My Google Emails On The Cloud?
GIDINA
Newbie

I have 15K emails and a lot I don't want and don't have the time to go through page by page on google email to delete

If my emails are on the cloud like my other info, contacts, videos,pictures, I can just delete them on GMAIL right?

Please and thank you!

Wow! That certainly is a lot of emails, GIDINA. The Verizon Cloud backs up a lot of fantastic things, but your emails are not one of them. For more about the Cloud, visit https://www.verizonwireless.com/solutions-and-services/verizon-cloud/ . With Gmail, if you delete the single message from your phone it will delete it off the Gmail account too. SuzyQ had a great suggestion to delete emails using your computer instead when you have that many messages. It will give you the opportunity to manage more messages at once. https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7401?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en

Effectively, looking at your emails in the GMAIL app is looking at the emails "in the cloud" - the emails are on gmail's server, not on your phone.  Deleting them from one or the other will delete them, period. 

You can sort and filter them (easier to do on the computer) and delete masses at a time while still managing to save the important ones.  Initially though, it will take time to sit down and go through and delete the ones you don't need.  You ca start by sorting by date, and getting rid of anything more than two or three years old as those are likely not needed.  Then sort alphabetically by sender to group them and you can usually delete chunks at a time.  Good luck - cleaning out an email box is always time consuming and tedious.
