Gmail Search Filters

Gmail

Use these following terms in the search bar to filter through your messages.

To display all unread emails type in the search bar and press enter:

is:unread

To display all read emails type in the search bar and press enter:

is:read

To specify if you want to search only in a certain email area, ie: sender, subject or body etc, use these below filters followed by your search.

For example, I’ll use the word Badger as my search term:

from:badger
to:badger
cc:badger
bcc:badger
subject:badger
label:badger

To search for emails with attachments:

has:attachment

To search for a specific attachment called Greenhouse:

filename:greenhouse

To show only emails sent after a specific date for example 16th of July 2010 (you must use this format: yyyy/mm/dd):

after:2010/07/16

To only show emails sent before a specific date (you again must use this format: yyyy/mm/dd):

before:2010/07/16
