My inbox is overflowing... 493 pages w/ 50 emails per page.
I want to archive it all & get back to a "clean slate".
As far as I can tell, the closest I can get is to select all (which is only the 50 on the current page) and click archive. I'm not going to do that 500 times. :-(
There is a "..." -> "Move all to trash" action in the top right of the inbox on the web client. That's almost what I want -- but I only want to move them to the archive.
Can we please have an "Move all to archive" action next to that "Move all to trash"?
I agree and am glad I'm not the only one with this request. I have more than 250 pages of emails spanning over 5 years.
What could be helpful is to select and archive within a timeframe to archive or to expand the number of messages that can be archived at once. I am willing to try this programmatically if there is an API available too.
The use case will be that at the end of every quarter or every year, the contents of the folder will be archived.
Since I do not control how many messages are received during the timeframe, it would help to select within a set of dates or 1000-emails instead of 50-emails per page.
I mean at least add option to show 100 or 1000 emails per page so we can click 10 times archive and be done.
I'm also on this one because I imported from Gmail for last decade and it's so annoying for someone with ADHD/ODD to have bunch of emails now. It's actually borderline triggering whenever I open the interface.

I would love for there to be an option to just select all, not just on this page but within the current selection (Label, Folder, search term, etc.) and then to have the ability to delete, archive, move, apply label, etc.
