Is there a way to search for all unread message in Gmail?

The closest I have found is searching for is:unread. I am not sure if it's a Gmail bug or if my syntax is incorrect.

Your is:unread syntax is correct. It's a known Google issue.

mmh the link you provided seems to be an issue about the unread count – emerix Jun 16 '11 at 19:11
Oh - misread. Rather than "in", I think you need "source" e.g. source:buzz is:unread – fergulator Jun 16 '11 at 19:39
