Because Google provides so much mail storage, there is really no need to ever delete a message. Instead of deleting a message, archive it instead! Archiving your mail will move it out of your inbox, just like deleting a message would. You can also select multiple messages at a time (Read, Unread, All, etc) and archive in bulk.

Archived mail can easily be recovered with All Mail. All Mail includes all messages in your Gmail / Google Apps account, other than items in Spam or Trash. Check out this video to learn how to archive mail and then recover it.

Hi,

I want to archive all 2000 emails in my gmail inbox in one go. How do I do this? If I use the method in the video I only archive those messages on the front page.
