I'd like to do a search in my Gmail to find out the mails that I sent without reply.
I tried this, but it doesn't work:
it seems that the 'has' operator only accept :attachment
Is there a way to search the un-replied mails?
I don't know of a direct way to do this, but you can create a filter that marks any mail containing "
alternatively, skip the labeling part and search for
I wanted to move all the mails I had sent to people and had not received a reply, into a label in Gmail. After trying different queries for an hour, I realised multiple queries would do the trick. And this worked for me.
1. Search for
Select all conversations that match this search, and Label as: Create new Label → Replied
2. Search for
Select all conversations that match this search, and Label as: Create new Label → NoReplyPlusChats
3. Search for
Select all conversations that match this search, and Remove Label NoReplyPlusChats → Apply
4. Rename Label NoReplyPlusChats to NoReply
5. Delete Label Replied
Now all your un-replied mails have the label: NoReply
(NOTE: Label NoReply would still contain your synced notes from smartphones, Apple Notes etc.)
I decided to use this search operator:
It's not perfect, but it cuts down on a lot of the conversations.
Just a few years late, but I wrote a Gmail plugin to help with this. It's been pretty popular so far and is probably used by thousands of people by now. You can find instructions for it here: http://jonathan-kim.com/2013/gmail-no-response/
It does a more sophisticated look up of who hasn't replied to your email, and you can tweak it to be even more effective to your use case.
Based on Ophir’s answer (I'm not sure if it’s possible to merge answers—I'm sure someone will pop along if neccessarily).
The search string I then had to use was:
Also—I'm afraid I'm not quite answering the OP—this will find all single emails that didn't get a reply. If someone emailed me, and I emailed back, and then there was no reply—that won't be found...
None of the previous answers worked for me. Searching for
What works for me is:
The logic here is that the first search will find all of the conversations with a reply. The second will then exclude those - leaving the messages without replies.
Alas, it is still not perfect. I create and apply the filter ("to matching conversations") and all is good. Then new replies come in and they don't seem to be added to the label...so I have to go back in like I'm editing the filter and re-apply it to catch the latest messages.
In the search bar, enter
