A Quick Way to Jump to the Oldest Mail in a Gmail Folder

We had a question this morning from Don, who asked:

“I use Gmail and wonder if there is an easy way to go to the end of my emails and delete many of them which are several years old?”

Questions like Don’s give us ideas for tips and tricks.  This happens to be something we use quite often. And it’s a great tip for those using Gmail who don’t already know how to jump to the bottom (oldest email) of your list of emails in any Gmail folder.

You can jump to the oldest emails in your list of email in Gmail with one click.

In your Gmail account. look for “1-50” right above the email list and hover over it until you see a dropdown menu. If you’re viewing your newest you’ll see “Oldest” in the menu. Click “Oldest” to go to the “bottom” (oldest) of your list of emails.

    Thanks so much for this tip. I wish I had had this months ago, when I had hundreds of emails in my Gmail folder. I used the “>” to move to the next 50 over and over again, to get to the oldest.
    This so EASY.
    God Bless+ ya’ll.
