How do I mark all email in my GMail accounts as read.. I did this all the time on my BlackBerry and I wish to be able to do so again from my phone.
Seriously though, how do we mark all as read. I have the same thing with all my accounts, some times I pick up the phone and have done 50 emails on my computer and caught up so I want to mark them all read on my droid so I can tell what's new...
Just press the little gray check box next to each email. They'll turn green. Once you've checked them all, click "Mark as Read." Bam, your done and it doesn't take all that long.
Still no "Check All" but it's better than nothing.
Well, as someone who gets 150+ emails per day let me say to everyone who cares about this: switch to K-9 mail tool!
Not only does it have a "mark all as read" menu option (3 clicks to approve, but better than nothing), but it also works better than the default tool and integrates with docs to go. The only feature it doesn't have is a merged multi-mailbox view, which I do kind of miss.
Here is the easiest way to Mark All Emails as Read:
1) Open gmail on your PC.
2) Select "All" Messages
3) When you do, a text link appears. In my case, "Select all 4166 conversations in Inbox".
4) Select "More Actions" > "Mark as Read"
5) Confirm the prompts.
That's it!!! Good luck!
