    Hey everyone.

    500mb of my iCloud account is taken up by mail (I have my gmail as my iCloud account).

    How can I cut down on this size? Seems very tedious to go through and delete (and save important emails) one by one.

    Thanks for any help!

    Set up your iCloud account in the mail.app on your computer. Add a column for file size and then sort by file size. Look at the largest files in your inbox or sent files folder and delete them.

    This was great advice! Did just that, and it worked perfectly. In 10 minutes last night I halved the space Mail was taking up in my iCloud account.

    Thanks a bunch. :D
