As I'm running out of space I need to delete space wasting mails. Is there any option in Gmail that adds a size column in the mail list or even sorts them by size?

  • If you don't trust third-party sites to keep your Gmail credentials safe you can use the following guide to build a spreadsheet in Google Docs containing a list of your large emails... labnol.org/internet/sort-gmail-by-size/21191 – AlwaysLearning Aug 25 '12 at 5:35

  • this doesn't answer the question. he specifically asked for a size column. The answer is apparently no. – stu Oct 14 '19 at 20:13

Gmail now supports searching by size: http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=7190

The new operators are:

  • size: — Search for messages larger than the specified size in bytes
    • Example: size:1000000
    • Meaning: All messages larger than 1MB (1,000,000 bytes) in size.
  • larger: and smaller: — Similar to size: but allows abbreviations for numbers
    • Example: larger:10M
    • Meaning: All messages of at least 10M bytes (10,000,000 bytes) in size.

You can now search for emails of that size and delete any to free up space.
