I know I can search Gmail using from:email (and many other helpful similar searches) but this will return all the conversations where email is the sender of one of the messages in the conversation.

Is there a way to search for all the conversations that the sender of the first message in the conversation is some email?

thanks for the edit @Alex, although I would leave out the @domain.com because it is not mandatory to have a proper email there. –  epeleg Oct 3 '12 at 10:31
    
You are right, I changed it. –  Alex Oct 3 '12 at 10:33

Maybe it could be helpful to use:

from:email -subject:"Re:"

should probably work as long as email is using an english email client (i.e. "Re:" could be in a different language.... ) I will wait a short while to see if there is a better solution and accept yours if no better one comes along. –  epeleg Oct 3 '12 at 9:32
    
may have to also have to account for forwards –  mhoran_psprep Oct 3 '12 at 12:12
