Gmail Label and Email Sharing allows you to share labels (and emails) as you would share folders in Google Drive (or Dropbox). However, there are some limitations and requirements.
- Your labels or sub-labels must not have “/” or “\” in its name. For example, if your label name is “Inbox/Clients” please rename that label to “Inbox – Clients”.
- Your labels or sub-labels must not have ” ” at the end or beginning of its name. For example, if your label name is “Support “ please rename that label to “Support”.
- The number of emails in the label (excluding sub-labels) should be limited to less than 100K. If you have more than 50K emails in the label you can organize them into sub-labels. For example, if you label “Support” has 130K emails then you can create sublabel “Support/Archive” where you can put all emails older than a certain date. This limitation is not about total number emails in the label (including sub-labels) but about number of email directly under the label.
- If you want to share a sub-label (without sharing the parent label), you must use cloudHQ web interface
