I have to constantly delete my sents because I send about 10 video clips (6 MEG each) per day, thus I am always filling up my free storage that Google allows. That's fine with me, I don't need to keep those sent files. What I do need to keep are files with attachments that I send myself (from other computers) so that I can keep them in labels in my iPhone and iPad Gmails for future use forever. (This is all under my one Gmail account.). But if I select all my sents, my labeled emails also get deleted. How can I stop this or find a work around? It's painstaking (takes about 45 mins each time) to go thru each of my sents and check the ones I need to keep and the ones I can get rid of, so I'm wondering if there's another workaround rather than that obvious one. (Yep, I send hundreds of emails per day.)
To delete a subset of email from your sent mail while avoiding those emails you sent to yourself do the following.
