Deleting Mail

To delete mail from a space, you need 'Delete Mail' permission. See Space Permissions.

Only a space administrator can delete all email messages for the space simultaneously.

To delete mail from a space:

  1. Go to a space and choose Space Tools > Integration > Mail
    Or, if your space uses the Documentation theme, choose Browse > Mail at the top of the screen.
    A list of email messages in the space is displayed in reverse chronological order.
  2. Delete an individual email message by choosing the trash icon beside it.
  3. If you are a space administrator, you can delete all email messages within a space at once by choosing Delete All.

 Space administrators can restore deleted email messages, provided they were deleted individually.

Note:  Email messages deleted using the 'Delete All' option cannot be restored.

To restore mail that has been deleted:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space tools > Content Tools on the sidebar. 
  2. Choose Trash.
  3. You will see a list of email messages and other content deleted from the space. Choose Restore beside the email message you want to restore.

If your space uses the Documentation theme:

  1. Choose Browse > Space Admin at the top of the screen.Note: The 'Space Admin' option appears only if you have space admin permissions for the space or you have System Administrator global permissions.
  2. Choose Trash in the left-hand panel.
  3. You will see a list of email messages and other content deleted from the space. Choose Restore beside the email message you want to restore.
