Gmail does not natively support reading imap based emails so you will need to use an intermediary solution. In this case I suggest following the answer on a related question:
You change the default settings only if you're a super admin.
Login to mail.zoho.com as Super Admin.
Go to Control panel
Click on the email address
And you can modify the IMAP and POP setting for all the users in the organization.
Hope this helps.
Here is the very simple answer to your request: In Gmail it's not possible "to delete all emails from my All Mail folder without deleting them from my Inbox or Sent mail folder".
Is there a way to make Gmail stop storing every email twice?
All Mail; deleting from disappeared my folder items as well!
This forwarding from AOL to Gmail can no longer be done. When I inquired of AOL I received this response (11/9/18):
Thank you for contacting the AOL Email Support Team.

While it may seem counter-intuitive, Google believes your IMAP client is a "less secure application" relative to your web browser. You must therefore
Allow less secure apps: If you don't use 2-Step Verification, you might need to allow less secure apps to access your account.

OK, seeing the "this computer only" name change gave me a clue. I know how to solve this, but I don't know what caused it. And there's an extra, "keep safe" step to the solution.
A. Create a new folder. For example, my folder was called "A/B/External (This computer only)", and "A/B/Family (This computer only)", so I've created "A/B/New External" and "A/B/...
The "web login required error" means that Gmail
is not recognizing your password or
you are signing from a new location or device or
you have enabled 2-Step Verification for your account.
You need to generate an Application specific password for MsgExtract.

In your IMAP client try using search to find unread messages as "snooze" is not the same as any other Gmail feature.

Without more details, I think that the best option is to do the bulk operations in http://mail.google.com just before you could left alone your Thunderbird instance for several hours, as the sync process could take "a while" and consume "a lot" of resources of your computer.

Google support suggests that if you're migrating from one Gmail/Google Apps account to a different Gmail/Google Apps account, just use POP3 between them. (Directions here)
However, you want to only copy/move some of the messages.
I would use a third-party email client that can connect to Gmail via IMAP. (Thunderbird would probably be my choice.)
Gmail doesn't offer end users a way to block email messages, but you could set a filter to automatically process them, i.e. mark as spam, delete them, apply a label, as you already did.
Besides this you could set which labels will sync through IMAP with email client. So you could disable the SPAM, Trash or both labels for a while, until Google block those ...
Generally, when users set up IMAP, the biggest complaints focus on the initial syncing from the server in-box to the user's in-box, often taking an extended period while the 1,000's of emails on the server are transferred to Outlook. This is completely avoidable and for many entirely unnecessary. A lot depends upon how often the users rely on indexed ...
