Gmail includes several search operators that you can use to find conversations even faster and accurately. Among them, there are several dedicated exclusively to filtering emails by date. Do you want to know them?
Unlike the web version, there is no date filter in the Gmail Android app. Therefore, it is necessary to use options such as the ones shown in this guide. All of them must be typed in the top search bar.
Search for an email before a date
The operator to be used to locate conversations before a specific date is as follows:
Search for an email between two dates
It is also possible to locate emails between two dates. It is done as follows:
Filter to search between two dates
Locate a conversation after a date
To find emails dating after a specific day, use the following operator:
Filter to search after a certain date
Find emails with a specific date
Gmail also lets you find emails with more than a specified amount of time in the mailbox. It is done in this way:
- older_than:Xd for an email with specific days of existence.
- older_than:Xd for an email with specific months of existence.
- older_than:Xd for an email with specific years of existence.
It also works in the opposite direction. Only in this case, it is necessary to use another operator.
- newer_than:Xd for an email with less than a few days of being sent.
- newer_than:Xd for an email with less than a few months of being sent.
- newer_than:Xd for an email with less than a few years of being sent.
Search for an email with a specific date
Combining older_than and newer_than is possible as you can see in the following screenshot. This formula further refines the search by mail seniority.Older and newer than a specific time
Use keywords together with operators
Finally, remember that you can use any of these search operators together with other terms. The screenshot below shows how to do this.Search operator with terms
Therefore, it is possible to locate emails by the date, that in addition, include a specific keyword.
