Deleting Thousands and Thousands of Emails 1 Recommended Answer 2 Replies 535 Upvotes

A friends gmail accounts has tens of thousands of emails that I'm trying to clean.  My first approach is to delete all those that have been tagged as/put in Promotions and Social.  But I can't get past only selecting  all those emails on my screen (Select All).  If there are 4K emails in Promotions I'm never going to do it - I need to be able to actually select everything.  I've tried various ways of actually selecting all the emails but each time it only seems to select those visible on my screen.  Any advise on the best method to use to delete thousands of email would be appreciated. (Is logging in to the server via a browser going to achieve this - or do I need to contact the server admin team?).
