Gopher for Gmail - Feature Requests


Allow for bulk search / delete message by ID

For large domains where the same email has been sent to more than about 5000 users, email search logs exports are not complete data.  A more complete (albeit less performant) approach for deletion in these cases would be to take a single message ID (or list of message IDs) for domain wide deletion, and iterate across all user inboxes.

    I added my votes before I had figured out how to use Gopher for Gmail.  The Purge Mail button was a little scary without a whole picture of how the system works.  I didn't realize that I had to export an Email Log Search first.  I haven't needed to remove emails from that many accounts yet, but I expect it might be necessary in the future. I removed 1 vote now that I know more about the product.  Does the Gmail Log limit mean you have to run the same search multiple times to clear the message from that many users?
