Now that you’re cleared out, let’s do something about that constantly rising counter of unread emails.
I suggest using Gmail’s filter features to automatically mark certain emails read without deleting them. This is best used for things like receipts from services you often use, such as Uber, Venmo, Netflix or Apple.
Start by clicking on one of these emails. Click on the three dot icon on the top left, followed by “Filter messages like these.” On the next screen, click “Create filter” and then check the box for “Mark as read.” If you have a bunch of these emails that are unread, you can also check the box that says “Also apply filter to matching conversations.” Finish the process by clicking on “Create filter.”
If you need to edit or delete filters, you can find all of them by clicking on the gear icon at the top right corner of the screen and selecting “Settings.” You can find all of your filters by clicking “Filters and Blocked Addresses.”
