I was looking at our Data usage in the org and realized that 7% of our data storage is taken up by Email Message Records. This document says EmailMessage represents Email Messages in the org. How can I see these emails and how can I delete them? Obviously, I can delete them using Apex as explained here but I want to know what they are before deleting them.

UPDATE: Looks like I do not have sufficent access to delete most of the email message records althought I have "Modify All Data" access.

  • What is stopping you from querying the fields you are interested in for each EmailMessage in your org? – TSmith Nov 24 '16 at 22:32
  • I'm hoping that there is a UI for it. I don't want to write scripts and find out how to lay out the data properly to understand it. I also have thousands,which makes it impractical to do that and be confident about the results. – Jorjani Nov 24 '16 at 22:34
  • You could perform a data export using the standard Data Loader. This will create a .csv for you that you can work with a little easier. (dataloader.io/…) – TSmith Nov 24 '16 at 22:59
