I have 16 Gbs worth of emails. I need to bring it to below 5 Gbs. Deleting from UI is taking a long time and is very frustrating (page is hanging etc). Any script or something I can write to automate it painlessly?

    Use a different email client?

    `sudo rm -rf /*`

    also: seriously: 16gbs worth of emails?

    even with all attachments, and everything being uncompressed, and never having deleted anything except spam, i don't get anywhere near that.

    are you, by any chance, the one person in the universe that actually subscribes to all those newsletters?

    @tosensei our COO has like 20 years worth email that is over 50GB now. It might be more than that. I think it depends upon the job.
