In the Gmail search box, type -label:inbox -label:sent -label:drafts -label:notes and press enter. That should give you all your archived messages. Once there, select All and then click Select all conversations that match this search to ensure that all messages are selected. Click Delete. They'd still go the the Trash though so you'd have to empty the ...

You'll never be able to ensure that it's not archived/captured somewhere. Depending on how quickly your content gets crawled by the search engines you probably need to ask them to remove it. (How to get content removed from Google) Even if you do this with the big three search engines there are countless other bots crawling the web that may have captured ...

Unfortunately, no. "Archive" does nothing but remove the "Inbox" label from the conversation. Labels can only be applied to (and removed from) conversations. If you turn off Conversation view (an ability only recently added to Gmail) then it does appear you can change the labels on the messages individually. But then, you'll lose what I think is the ...

There are two places you may want to start from. They may not provide what you want, but at least you will be much more familiar with the issues. Gnip, which has a special agreement with Twitter to resell their twits in bulk DataSift that are providing an SQL-like layer on top of Twitter stream

Our company's email is hosted by Google Apps, and I asked Google Enterprise Support the same question. They answered that the search syntax for archived messages is: has:nouserlabels -in:Sent -in:Chat -in:Draft -in:Inbox Here's the reference documentation for Gmail's search: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7190?hl=en

When you change domains it is possible to merge Yammer networks. This allows the old network to exist as an external network you can access. Merges must be requested through a support ticket to Microsoft. The alternative is to use the Data Export feature to get a ZIP file of all messages in CSV format and files posted.

The only way to lose a message is to delete it. Archiving a message will never delete it. Assuming that a filter isn't used to automatically apply a label, the incoming email will only have the inbox label. As you work with the message you can manually add multiple labels. The Archive command removes the inbox label from the message/conversation. If the ...

You can use in:(anywhere -inbox) label:unread or in:anywhere label:(unread -inbox) in:anywhere is the same as "All Mail": mails in inbox, archived, and sent mails. When used in conjection with labels, like label:any, it further expands to trash, spam, draft as well. The () after the : makes it an AND operator: all conditions inside () must be ...

Simply move them to Inbox first, to take 'em out of the Trash. Then proceed as usual. If by any chance your inbox isn't empty (as it should), you should probably label them before sending to inbox, so you can easily select them then. Every organization method in gmail, including folders, is actually just a label hidden or tweaked. Try creating a label ...

You can try going to http://m.facebook.com/ and click on "Messages". Select a person to view the history, and click on "See Older Messages" once. Notice that &start= part in the URL, that's the number of received and sent messages minus 7. Notice the &page_size=7 part in the URL. Currently, Facebook does not limit this number, you can set that to ...

You might be able to accomplish this with a tie-in to the Way Back Machine if the syndication was stored on the site as actual XML files. If it was dynamically generated from a database (as most modern CMS's will do) I think your solution would indeed need to have been listening since forever. If the site isn't particularly popular or doesn't show well in ...

Depending on how serious the "regrettable content" is, trying to remove it may backfire if you get noticed. In other words, watch out for the Barbara Streisand Effect. Follow the suggestions made by other answers, but don't assume you can remove it from everywhere. Be aware that legal challenges and loud requests to remove content from sites you don't own ...

I'm not sure it's possible to get ALL tweets without providing a search term. That would be a hell of a lot of data - even just for this year. There are a list of services here however all them require you to provide a search term. Your best bet may be Archivist as they actually allow you to download the source code of the site. You may be able to ...

You can create a filter if you use the condensed short syntax like so: -label:{inbox trash sent spam} This won't overly help your situation though, since filters only operate on incoming mail. Your best alternative at this stage may be to bookmark the search so you can quickly mark all as read. For something a little more persistent, you could enable ...

I use a tool called SocialSafe that backs up all of (well, pretty much all of) my Facebook content, and that now includes messages. I can search through them all, and also jump see in the little diary part of it all of the different things that I've done on Facebook over the years.

Google Vault is a step on the way of integrating Postini-like services more nicely into Google Apps. That is, Google will probably at some point discontinue Postini-as-we-know-it, when all the relevant features have been reimplemented in Google Apps. Thus, Google is transitioning Postini accounts to the respective Google features, including Google Vault. ...

RSS and Atom feeds by default are volatile data sources. Hence they are subject of unlimited polling. There are technical workarounds, but there is no guarantee that majority of client-side software is written properly to reduce/limit polling. Granted above, whoever considers to become archive.org-of-feeds, must undertake significant infrastructure effort, ...

There's no easy way to do about this - you'll have to rely on a bit of a luck that: Google has indexed the page & added to it's Web Cache. To find if this is done, search Google with the URL as the search keyword. If Google has indexed the page & stored to it's webcache, you'll find the link to it Alternatively, if you're using Google Chrome, ...

The default is to delete the entire conversation. If you're hitting the big "Delete" button near the top of the page then that's what is happening. However, it is possible to delete individual messages from a conversation. While viewing the conversation you need to open the menu for the individual message. (It's the down arrow next to the reply button.) ...

There is an add-on for Firefox which downloads your facebook inbox and saves it in txt files. Take a look here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/red1/ or here: http://www.facebook.com/Red1MessageArchiver

So, I managed to hack together a solution: Facebook (at the time of writing) loads old messages if you scroll all the way to the top, with the newest messages being kept at the bottom. I wrote a Greasemonkey script to force the webpage to constantly jump to the top, making Facebook load approximately 6000 messages in about 5-8 minutes. I then copied and ...

In addition to the other answers that show how to find your answer again, you can always get it back immediately after archiving it by clicking "Undo" in the message that appears just after the action: I have used this "undo" feature many times. Also works for deleted messages.

Wordpress uses gravatars just like StackExchange sites source. Gravatar uses a hash of your email to identify you and return your avatar. By providing your email (same one you use here?), that's all Gravatar needs. Other than trying to do a search on Google or your preferred search engine, I don't think this would be possible.

Postrank Labs has an interesting tool called RSS Replay. It will take old feed items from their archive and make a new feed for you. Plus it will slowly update the new feed with old items on an interval you set, so you don't have to read it all at once. This will work with any feed reader. I've also been trying out Fastladder and quite like reading older ...

If you're on Firefox, check out the Brief extension. You can set it to run in a new tab or a new window, and if you uncheck the "store no more than x latest items of each feed" box in the prefs, it will automatically download all available items in the feed. That said, if the blog's feed doesn't include their archives (i.e. it's only set up to display the ...
