Few months ago, I’ve introduced you to Find Big Mail, a web app that lets you search for big emails in Gmail easily. However, last month, Google announced that they have added features to Gmail to allow searching by size and age of email. Now, because of this update, it is not really necessary anymore to use Find Big Mail since users can now search for big emails within the existing Gmail interface.
Here’s what the Google Team said on the official Gmail Blog:
We’re always looking for ways to make it faster and easier for you to find your messages using search in Gmail. So starting today, you can now search emails by size, more flexible date options, exact match and more.
This means, for example, to find emails larger than 5MB, you can search for size:5m or larger:5m or to find emails sent over a year ago, older_than:1y.
Check out the complete list of the advanced search operators to help you find what you’re looking for quickly and accurately!
