Delete and remove a label in Gmail

The previous tutorial explained how to create a label in Gmail; once you have labels, you can organize your emails by category to quickly find the ones related to another, etc. But as time passes and you keep adding labels, to the point where the situation can become quite unmanageable, you will probably want to change the way you manage your email messages in Gmail. At that point, you have two options: as you'll learn in this tutorial, you can permanently delete and remove a label from your account; another solution is to temporarily hide a label (without deleting it), something you may want to consider as alternative to deletion, having spent so much time categorizing email messages in your account.

Permanently delete a label in Gmail

Again, you can permanently delete any custom label you created yourself, but not the system labels (Inbox, Buzz, Starred, Chats, Sent Mail, Drafts, All Mail, Spam, and Trash) - these are essential to the inner workings of your Google Mail / Gmail email account.
