Do you get tons of attachments to your Gmail inbox & would you like to clear out the larger ones? Here's an awesome script bythat tries to find the largest Gmail messages and shows them in a Google Spreadsheet. The neat part is that you don't need any third-party website/tool, it's all just Google Docs. #springcleaning #gmail

- I suspect an easier solution would be to use Thunderbird as an IMAP Gmail client as Thunderbird will allow you to sort messages by size and delete attachments / messages directly from the Thunderbird interface.
Arguably it would be nice to have this functionality (size sort) directly from within the Gmail web interface, but I also understand there is probably a desire to keep the interface simple.Apr 19, 2012
- Ted Juch+1I think the easiest solution of all would be to change one's style of email management. Use the Priority inbox (https://mail.google.com/mail/help/priority-inbox.html) and be just judicious with emails that are archived and deleted. Also, why not use Google Docs to share items instead of emailing them?Apr 19, 2012
