Explain your issue in full detail here:


Hotmail recently introduced a function that enables the user to sweep the account for the nummerous messages from various email subscriptions that are not read and just takes up space in my inbox.
 
I, I suppose like millions of other gmail users, have about 1500 unread emails from various organizations that originally was of interest to me, however, which I later lost interest in. It would be helpful if Gmail introduce a tool like that. In my hotmail account I managed to sweep out 4500 unread emails dating back 5-6 years in less than 30 min.
 
Thanks and regards,
Mikkel

I got into my hotmail account last week after having ignored it for years. I had over 8K unread messages. I checked out the new UI and features, found Sweep, and cleaned the spam and junk out of my hotmail inbox in less than 5 min - zero unread messages. These days, I dread checking my gmail account - too much junk, no way to efficiently and quickly clean it out. Result: I'm forwarding my gmail email to my hotmail account. Never thought that would happen.
