I was looking for a specific email that I received couple months ago. Since there’s no “Go to Date:….” button, I ended up have to hit the “Older” button to get to my older messages in my Gmail Inbox, which will take forever since I was looking for an email back in May 2010.
After a quick search on Google. I found out an easy way to do it. You just have to type “after:2010/05/01 before:2010/05/31” in Gmail’s search bar. Voilla…all my emails are filtered so that only those email that I received between those date range shown.
Some shortcuts that I found to search your Gmail email messages:
- label:abcd (to list emails under specific label)
- has:attachment (to find emails that have attachment)
- filename:abcde.zip (to find specific file name or extension among all the attachments in your Gmail Inbox)
- in:anywhere, in:inbox, in:trash, or in:spam (to find email in specific places)
Do you know any other shortcuts like these? If you do, please leave your comments below to share it with others.
