I wanted to archive all “Inbox” messages to archive them.
That folder contained a lot of messages, related to several years conversations.
I noticed that “Ctrl + A” doesn’t actually select all messages but it appears limited to 200.
I had to repeat the sequence “Ctrl + A” + Archive several times to achieve the job…
Is this behavior known? Can you confirm?
- go in a folder with more than 200 messages, like “All Messages” folder of GMail for instance
- press select all (for me is ctrl + a)
- scroll down at the end of loaded messages
- you will see other UNSELECTED messages appearing
That confirms select all function doesn’t actually select all, but may be just what is loaded from remote folder (via IMAP I would say).
Wouldn’t be better if “Select All” function really does a full unlimited selection of all messages within the current folder?
Thanks in advance for replies!
