How to View All Your Unread Emails in Gmail
Gmail is probably the most popular email client on the planet. Millions of people use it on a daily basis, with millions of emails being exchanged every day. You probably get all kinds of spam emails and random messages regularly, and if you don’t keep your inbox tidy, it’s easy to get lost in there. So, if you don’t want to hunt for unread mails page by page, there are a few methods that allow you to see only the unread emails.
The first method allows you to set the priority of the emails displayed in your inbox. You can set it up so the unread emails are displayed first, no matter when you’ve received them. You can change the priority in the “Settings” tab. Here is what you have to do:
Gmail offers another super-easy method of finding unread emails. You can use specific commands in the search bar within Gmail to see all unread emails or unread emails from particular senders or email providers. Here is how it works:
This feature allows you to pinpoint all emails sent from a single address. You can also search them by the name of the provider, or by date.
Gmail can help you narrow your search down with a few useful tools. You can filter out mails sent by certain people, sort mails by providers, find all unread emails between two dates, and so on. The feature is very convenient, especially if you have an overcrowded inbox with thousands of emails. Here some examples to help you figure out how it works:
Let’s say that you want to search all unread emails between April and September 2019. The adequate command is: “is:unread before:2019/09/13 after:2019/04/01”. All unread emails between those two dates will appear in chronological order.
If you want to find unread emails from a specific sender, try using this command: “is:unread from:[email protected]”. Gmail will display only unread emails received from the contact you entered.
You can also find all unread emails that came from Google accounts. Copy the following command into the search bar: “is:unread from:*@google.com”. The list will show you unread emails you received from other Gmail accounts.
Finding emails received from a friend is also possible, even if you don’t know the exact email address. Type “is:unread from:name of your friend”, and you will get a list of unread emails you received from that person.
You can also combine elements from all these methods to make your search even more specific. Let’s pretend that you want to see unread emails you received from your friend Bob before August 8, 2019. The command will look like this: “is:unread before:2019/08/08 from:Bob”. You can also combine other parameters.
If you’re the type of person that doesn’t pay too much to how their Gmail inbox looks like, these methods will help you find specific emails in no time. The first method will help you see up to 50 latest unread emails, but if you are looking for something older, commands in the second section might be of more use.
