How to Empty the Gmail Spam Folder


As with other email services, Google's Gmail offers a “spam folder.” You can alter your Gmail settings so that messages you do not want to receive in your inbox will automatically be sent to the spam folder. Although Gmail automatically deletes messages in your spam folder after they've been there for 30 days, the folder can fill up with hundreds of messages very quickly. Fortunately, it's easy to empty the Gmail spam folder without having to go through each message.

  • Sign into your Gmail account.

  • Click the “Spam” link on the left side of your Gmail account page. You will be redirected to the spam folder.

  • Click the “Delete all spam messages now” link positioned at the top of the messages in the spam folder. A window will appear.

  • Select “OK” in the open window. The contents of your entire Gmail spam folder will be deleted.
