A 'select all' feature
There is currently a select feature for a whole page, but instead of just one page (Kind of tedious if you have a lot of emails), either make the pages infinite depending on email count, or a select all feature.
Just finished cleaning up my old Gmail account, went to clean old emails on my Proton Mail and was really confused when I couldn't find an option to select offscreen emails in my search.
"Select all" should give option to select all messages in folder/label. Currently "Select all" only selects 50 messages i.e. the first page only.
This feature was requested in 2015... and now we are in 2022. This is a quite critical and impacts the way many of us organise and work with mail. As you can see from the comments, people are wondering when this feature will be available.
Even Gmail has this basic feature that I always used and strange that it is not also here.
I need to select and delete hundreds of e-mails from folders, labels and even within filtered search results as many duplicates were imported during migration. I cannot do this efficiently as I need to go through some 400+ pages of mail and do not have the time to go through each page containing only 50 messages. I cannot organise my mail until this feature is finally added.
Please consider moving this feature up in the development pipeline as critical. Thank you!
This one seems so basic, I can’t believe it wasn’t in from the start!
Surely an essential requirement for bulk deletion - needed in my case because of recent move from Gmail to Protonmail.
Transfer of my complete inbox and archive.hit 99% storage capacity full straight away.

This is vital, please implement a feature that enables whole sets, or a number other than 1 or 50 at a time. I have thousands of imported, old emails, which I want to move to Archive, or delete. 1 page at a time is painfully slow.
NOTE: It would be wonderful if the number selected could be user parameter driven.
... or similar. However, I would be happy to accept the number selected as a parameter in the dialog, or even a default in Settings.
How you provide this is a nicr to have. Providing it in any way is the vital element :-)
an option in Settings.
Also vote up the ability to apply filters retroactively. That makes this less important.
When i push the Select All emails check box, it should select all emails, not just the ones on the current page. Selecting all could take many many selections.
This is a critical feature, specially without the ability to apply filters retroactively.

This would be terrifically helpful for folks who get a large number of emails every day!
Thanks, Joe. I moved my vote to the thread you linked.
I added some new filters to move mails to folders and the filter didn't move existing mails so I had to do it my self. In short, the paging of select all got tedious very fast!
SELECT ALL When will this feature be available?
Il y a l'option "Tous les messages", il serait bien d'avoir la possibilité de voir tous les messages sans les messages effacés. En un click.

Also, it would be nice to allow the DELETE key delete messages
Yes, please. That functionality would be enormously helpful. So far, I have found no way to achieve this.
This seems like an easy win and it's a feature that a major competitor (Gmail) implemented. I'd add it ASAP.
