Customer Question
I have an Archive...

I have an Archive folder that has about 15,000 emails. I think it is taking a lot of storage on my MacBook Pro, and wonder if I can delete these emails in the Archives or will it delete the emails in my google inbox?

Technician's Assistant: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

Gmail

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Gmail? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

On my MacBook Pro through the Mail app. And on my iPhone 7 the same way.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I have talked with the Apple Tech Support and the senior advisers don't know much about these Archived emails. Is it necessary to have emails in the Archives? I didn't use to have this with my other desktop computer. Does everyone with a gmail account have Archives?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

No. Thank you so much.
