If you want to sort your Gmail messages according to their size, then Google docs will help you.
It is very difficult to find out an email that how much size it is and where it is because Gmail do not have sorting process. You may face a problem of being overloaded by mail in your email account. In Gmail, you have to pay $5 every year for additional 20GB space for your emails, which is not acceptable for everyone. So finding out the big sized emails and then delete the unnecessary emails will be a good choice.
In this process, there is no need of installing any software in your computer and you do not have to grant access for third-party permission. The system is through Google docs.
In this process, Google docs will connect with your Gmail accounts and it will calculate your email size of every message in the mailbox. If there is an email which size is >1MB, then it will make a list of that emails in the spreadsheet. Once the process is complete and have the list of bulky emails in the spreadsheet, you can now sort this by their size column to get the big sized emails. Alternatively, to get the emails in particular range between 5MB to 10MB, you can use filter option (funnel icon).
All the steps are given below:
- Go to this link and there you can see “make a new copy of this document”. The you have to click “Yes, Make a copy”.
- After that, you can see a spreadsheet like Microsoft excel. There you can see a new option called “Gmail (Click Here)” after a few minute. To initialize your sheet, click on “Reset Canvas” which will initialize the process.
- Then there will be a pop-up box, which will be for authorization. Click “ok”. If you are logged in to your Gmail account then it will ask you for the access of your Gmail. Click on “Grant Access” and it will now access your messages.
- If the permission is granted, click on “Scan Mailbox”. It will start scanning.
Another good feature of this process is that, if you accidently close this tab in your browser, then just open same “Google Sheet” and then click on “Scan Mailbox”, it will resume your work previously where it was.
Now click the “view” link to open the similar messages in the Gmail, forward it to a secondary email address and then to recover space, delete it from the primary inbox.
