However, the best option for you is to archive any email that might be useful in the future. This article provides a step-by-step walkthrough on how to easily Archive and Unarchive Gmail messages.
Archiving old emails is perhaps the best thing to do because you can unarchive them later if you need them. Eventually, you might want back some emails in your inbox; all you have to do is Unarchive them back without losing any classified files.

How to Archive Your Gmail Messages

Archiving email is quite simple, and all emails with codes, passwords, sensitive information, and so on can be saved to your Archive with just a few clicks. However, all archived emails will be moved to a different folder, where you can access them whenever you want.
Note: Once an email has been archived, such email will disappear from your inbox and be moved to a different folder called “All Mail,” as mentioned earlier.
Follow the highlighted steps below to Archive your emails.
  • Click on the drop-down menu by clicking on the little arrow next to the empty square above your email list.
  • Click and hold on to the email you are willing to Archive or click “Select All Messages” if you want to archive all.
  • Once all of your emails are selected, hit the “Archive” icon, and all of your emails will transfer to the “All Mail” folder.
  • Click “OK” when the pop-up window appears.
